RICHARD P. STANLEY - Enumerative Combinatorics


Most textbooks written in our day have a short half-life. Published to meet the demands of a lucrative but volatile market, inspired by the table of contents of some out-of-print classic, garnished with multicolored tables, enhanced by nutshell summaries, enriched by exercises of dubious applicability, they decorate the shelves of college bookstores come September. The leftovers after Registration Day will be shredded by Christmas, unwanted even by remainder bookstores. The pageant is repeated every year, with new textbooks on the same shelves by other authors (or a new edition if the author is the same), as similar to the preceding as one can make them, short of running into copyright problems.
