About this book
This collection of tutorial and research papers introduces readers to diverse areas of modern pure and applied algebraic combinatorics and finite geometries with a special emphasis on algorithmic aspects and the use of the theory of Gröbner bases.
Topics covered include coherent configurations, association schemes, permutation groups, Latin squares, the Jacobian conjecture, mathematical chemistry, extremal combinatorics, coding theory, designs, etc. Special attention is paid to the description of innovative practical algorithms and their implementation in software packages such as GAP and MAGMA.
Readers will benefit from the exceptional combination of instructive training goals with the presentation of significant new scientific results of an interdisciplinary nature.
