About the Course

Analytic Combinatorics teaches a calculus that enables precise quantitative predictions of large combinatorial structures. This course introduces the symbolic method to derive functional relations among ordinary, exponential, and multivariate generating functions, and methods in complex analysis for deriving accurate asymptotics from the GF equations. All the features of this course are available for free. It does not offer a certificate upon completion....

This is my first course on Coursera. I've found it among set of Ivy League free courses, advertised on the Internet due to Coronavirus. The topic is very interesting - on standard discrete mathematic courses on mathematical or IT studies, generating functions are treated very softly. Here I could learn many great things. Second part of course may be a little bit harder for IT students who do not have previous knowledge about complex analysis.

The lectures are very well organized. The instructor, a most prominent figure in the field of combinatorics, explains advanced mathematical notions without sacrificing rigor. I appreciated the option to retake quizzes as many times as one wants, even after passing them, to test one's understanding and assimilation of the concepts.

Very good class if you're into computer science and enjoy abstract math.

There are a few typos in the quizzes that could easily be fixed: make sure you check the forum.

Excellent course. One minus is that there are some unfortunate typos/errors in the quizzes.

In terms of lectures and content, this was easily a five star course. However, a few of the test questions were wrong and the forums show them to have been so for years without fixing. I conclude that the people responsible have simply abandoned the course, leaving learners to themselves. Thankfully this was a minor issue, but I still knock one star off. :)

The course is great! But the textbook is far more advanced than the contents offered throughout the course. Suggest to cover more topics in the textbook as many there are found really interesting but just too technical to understand without lecture guidance.
