The book has two goals: (1) Provide a unified treatment of the binomial coefficients, and (2) Bring together much of the undergraduate mathematics curriculum via one theme (the binomial coefficients). The binomial coefficients arise in a variety of areas of mathematics: combinatorics, of course,...

Volume of geometric objects plays an important role in applied and theoretical mathematics. This is particularly true in the relatively new branch of discrete geometry, where volume is often used to find new topics for research. Volumetric Discrete Geometry demonstrates the recent aspects of volume...

Algorithmics of Nonuniformity is a solid presentation about the analysis of algorithms, and the data structures that support them. Traditionally, algorithmics have been approached either via a probabilistic view or an analytic approach. The authors adopt both approaches and bring them together to...
