"The theorems and algorithms are all described in an intuitive yet precise manner, and the monograph would be an easy-to-read introduction to the area for any graduate student of mathematics or computer science." --Peter Eades, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 90g, 1990.
A survey of some of the work that has been done since the appearance of the second edition of Combinatorial Algorithms. Topics include progress in: Gray Codes, listing of subsets of given size of a given universe, listing rooted and free trees, selecting free trees and unlabeled graphs uniformly at random, and ranking and unranking problems on unlabeled trees.
