Textbook: A review for the textbook can be found on the MAA webpage. Errata for the textbook was formerly found on the author's homepage, but this seems to have disappeared for the time being.

Books

  • Jiří Matoušek and Jaroslav Nešetřil, Invitation to Discrete Mathematics.
    This textbook has a somewhat similar flavor to the Bona book. It is at a slightly less sophisticated level, and emphasizes graph theory (which we are not doing much with) more than Bona's book does. It was the textbook for MA 4143 last semester (Spring 2014).

  • Richard Stanley, Enumerative Combinatorics, vol 1.
    This approaches a subselection of the material from Bona's book at a somewhat more sophisticated level.

Websites

Wikipedia is, perhaps surprisingly, not a bad source for background material on basic definitions and results in many areas of mathematics, including discrete mathematics and combinatorics.
