Combinatorics is concerned with construction and analysis of discrete or finite structures.

It has connections with many fields of pure mathematics, such as:

  • algebra
  • probability
  • topology
  • geometry.

It has applications in areas including optimization, computer science and statistics.

Special interests

We have special interests in:

  • design theory
  • algebraic combinatorics
  • graph theory
  • combinatorial geometry
  • combinatorial group theory.
