      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Discrete And Combinatorial Mathematics is a comprehensive text for students who wish to learn the fundamentals and principles of the Combinatorics and Discrete branches of Mathematics.

    Summary Of The Book

    Combinatorial and Discrete Mathematics are important branches of Mathematics. Combinatorics is the branch that studies finite discrete structures. It includes combinatorial designs, extremal combinatorics, matroid theory and combinatorial optimization. Discrete Mathematics, on the other hand, studies the mathematical structures which are discontinuous and discrete. In this book, Ralph P. Grimaldi and B. V. Ramana focus on the basics of both Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics.

    Discrete And Combinatorial Mathematics has 16 chapters. The book begins with the Fundamental Principles of Counting like the Rules of Sum and Product, Combinations, and Permutations and Combinations with Repetition. The authors then tackle topics such as the Fundamentals of Logic, Properties of the Integers, Set Theory, Relations and Functions.

    Part II of the book focuses on Further Topics in Enumeration like the Principle of Inclusion, Principle of Exclusion, Generating Functions and Recurrence Relations. It offers coverage on topics such as The Summation Operator, The Method of Generating Functions, Partition of Integers, Rook Polynomials, and The Exponential Generating Function.

    The next section discusses Graph Theory and Applications. It gives the readers an Introduction to Graph Theory and Trees. It discusses Vertex Degree, Planar Graphs, Hamilton Paths and Cycles. Rooted Trees, Weighted Trees, Prefix Codes, Graph Coloring and Chromatic Polynomials are also discussed.

    The last section is on Modern Applied Algebra. It covers Rings and Modular Arithmetic, Algebraic Structures, Monoids, Semigroups, Coding theory, and Polya's Method of Enumeration. It also includes coverage on topics like Finite Fields and Combinatorial Designs. The book is inclusive of appendices on the Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Countable and Uncountable Sets, Matrices, Matrix Operations, and Determinants.

    With clear examples, the book offers comprehensive coverage on all the important topics of Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics. The book includes a Summary and a Historical Review at the end of each chapter. The book gives importance to the applications and algorithms. It is inclusive of exercise sets and computer science applications that can help students gain a better understanding of the subject.
