This quantity, as Andrew M. Odlzyko writes within the foreword, “commemorates and celebrates the lifestyles and achievements of a unprecedented person.” initially conceived as an eightieth birthday tribute to Herbert Wilf, the well known combinatorialist, the ebook has advanced past the proceeds of the W80 tribute.

Professor Wilf used to be an award-winning instructor, who was once supportive of ladies mathematicians, and who had an strangely excessive percentage of ladies between his PhD applicants. He was once Editor-in-chief of the yankee Mathematical per thirty days and a founding father of either the magazine of Algorithms and of the digital magazine of Combinatorics. yet he was once first a researcher, pushed by way of his wish to be aware of and clarify the interior workings of the mathematical world.

The ebook collects fine quality, refereed examine contributions by way of a few of Professor Wilf’s colleagues, scholars, and collaborators. the various papers awarded the following have been featured within the 3rd Waterloo Workshop on laptop Algebra (WWCA 2011, W80), held may perhaps 26-29, 2011 at Wilfrid Laurier collage, Waterloo, Canada. Others have been incorporated as a result of their courting to his very important paintings in combinatorics. All are offered as a tribute to Herb Wilf’s contributions to arithmetic and mathematical life.
