"102 Combinatorial Problems" consists of carefully selected problems that have been used in the training and testing of the USA International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) team. Key features: * Provides in-depth enrichment in the important areas of combinatorics by reorganizing and enhancing problem-solving tactics and strategies * Topics include: combinatorial arguments and identities, generating functions, graph theory, recursive relations, sums and products, probability, number theory, polynomials, theory of equations, complex numbers in geometry, algorithmic proofs, combinatorial and advanced geometry, functional equations and classical inequalities The book is systematically organized, gradually building combinatorial skills and techniques and broadening the student's view of mathematics. Aside from its practical use in training teachers and students engaged in mathematical competitions, it is a source of enrichment that is bound to stimulate interest in a variety of mathematical areas that are tangential to combinatorics.

This is an excellent training source in combinatorics for mathematics olympiads and contests. Problems in this book are divided into 2 sets, with each set containing 51 problems. Problems in the first set are introductory ones (hence, relatively easy), and that in the second set are advanced problems (And harder, much harder indeed in the last few problems). Problems are very well selected and carefully organized according to their difficulty and technic involved. They span from the very easy first some enumerative problems to the really hard IMO-level, even notorious National-MO problems. Moreover, problems are up-to-date hence it avoids well-known cliche problems. The book is published in the end of 2002, and in this book some of the 102 problems are selected from the IMO that year! As a regular lecturer of Taiwan's IMO team, I highly recommend this problem book.
I found what I was looking for The writer approaches the problem and explains it in a very good way
