taught by Prof. James Propp

Note: the registrar's course-page for Math 192 is

You can read an overview of the course, a syllabus, and a description of course logistics (including a reading list).

You can see a list of topics covered in individual lectures, with links to my personal lecture-notes and links to videos.

Students who take this course will find the following links helpful:

The On-line
Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences
of Neil Sloane;

Here is a sample Maple session about manipulating sets and lists.

Here is an article on lattice animals by Mireille Bousquet-Melou and Andrew Rechnitzer (the figures on pages 5 and 6 were shown in class).

*I have removed the solutions to the problem sets from the web,
in preparation for teaching a course similar to Math 192
at the University of Wisconsin in Fall 2003;
but I will happy to send the solutions by email to anyone
who isn't a student in the course.*
