Description: "How many?" is the most basic question in mathematics. It also can be one of the most profound. How many different molecules can we construct from a collection of atoms? How many regions are there in space sliced by random planes? How many paths along a lattice will take us to our destination? How many ways can we stack boxes into a corner? These questions are important to physicists, chemists, and computer scientists. We'll explore some of these counting problems and reveal some techniques for sophisticated counting.
