Explains the tools necessary tools to solve olympiad combinatorics type problems, using clear examples from recent contests
Includes over 120 problems with hints and full, sometimes multiple, solutions
May be used by olympiad students and coaches but is also useful for university courses on combinatorics
Almost completely self-contained, requiring very little technical knowledge
Every year there is at least one combinatorics problem in each of the major international mathematical olympiads. These problems can only be solved with a very high level of wit and creativity. This book explains all the problem-solving techniques necessary to tackle these problems, with clear examples from recent contests. It also includes a large problem section for each topic, including hints and full solutions so that the reader can practice the material covered in the book. The material will be useful not only to participants in the olympiads and their coaches but also in university courses on combinatorics.
