**Final project information is now
available.** I'll update the list whenever someone tells me which
article they want to read.

541 Snow, 864-7114**Syllabus**(8/21/08)**Meeting times:**TTh, 11:00-12:15 PM, 408 Snow**Office hours:**By appointment (or just walk in)**Prerequisite:**Math 791 or the equivalent. Some knowledge of combinatorics (e.g., Math 724 or better yet my Math 796 course from Spring 2008) will be helpful, but I'll try to make this course as self-contained as possible.**Books:**- Anders Björner and Francesco Brenti,
*Combinatorics of Coxeter Groups*(Springer GTM 231, 2005). [The official course text. We'll cover chapters 1 and 2 and some subset of 3, 4, 7, and 8.] KU students can read the book online (this link may not work off campus, or may require you to sign in with your KUID). - James Humphreys,
*Reflection Groups and Coxeter Groups*(Cambridge, 1990). [The standard textbook on Coxeter groups, with a less combinatorial and more geometric approach than Björner and Brenti's book.] - Richard Stanley,
*Enumerative Combinatorics*, volumes 1 and 2 (Cambridge, 1997/1999). [The canonical reference for all things combinatorial.]

- Anders Björner and Francesco Brenti,

- Björner and Brenti's textbook [full-text PDF; requires KU username and password]
- Class notes (username = math996; password protected; last update 12/5/08)
- Bruhat order on the Coxeter system A
_{3}, in a form suitable for framing (or scribbling on)

- Writing in the Sciences (UNC Chapel Hill Writing Center)
*A Guide to Writing Mathematics*and Mathematical Writing Checklist (Prof. Kevin Lee, Purdue)
