After some discussion and a lengthy hiatus, the Polymath3 project (on attacking the polynomial Hirsch conjecture via combinatorial means) has officially started with a new research thread on Gil Kalai’s blog (which, for now, can also double as the discussion thread, given that the activity level is still quite low), and a Polymath wiki page.

Hi,

Don’t know if this September post has anyone reading comments still.

I am looking for some basic books on combinatorics or any online intros. First level stuff with the basics on nomenclature and intro problems.

My math, that I have not touched in a very long tine, was practical partial differential eqs and numerical analysis as applied to solve engineering problems. More about how things work from a newtonian angle than computer science and statistics. Pure math was never the interest – what you do with it was.

Therefore a basic intro to Combinatorics is the request.

Thanks!

MM
