Description: I will focus this year on combinatorics associated with Coxeter groups and root systems.  In the course of this we will still encounter many of the traditional topics, but with a different point of view and more contact with current research.

Catalog Description: (I) Enumeration, generating functions and exponential structures, (II) Posets and lattices, (III) Geometric combinatorics, (IV) Symmetric functions, Young tableaux, and connections with representation theory. Further study of applications of the core material and/or additional topics, chosen by instructor.
