Enumerative or Non-enumerative Combinatorics?

  1. Jun 4, 2009 #1
    Which one do you find more interesting and why?

    My school offers separate classes in these two subjects and I'm wondering about which one I should take. I have very little experience with combinatorics (not much more than my high school algebra II course), so I have no idea.

    Jolly hard question for me to answer! The first combinatorics class I took, I studied enumerative techniques for the first half and then non-enumerative for the second half. I liked both of them honestly.

    I think it's probably important to have a good basis for enumerative combinatorics before studying non-enumerative. Just my opinion though I guess.
