  • 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.
