This semester (Fall 2013) I am teaching 18.315 (Combinatorial Theory) and 18.821 (Project Laboratory in Mathematics). The topic for 18.315 is symmetric functions. During the following semester (Spring 2014) I will be on leave at the University of Miami.Richard P. Stanley Department of Mathematics 2-375 (after 7/31/13: E17-434) Massachusetts Institute of Technology Cambridge, MA 02139-4307

Curriculum vitae (abbreviated)
List of publications Most of these papers are now available as pdf files, thanks to the efforts of Arthur L. B. Yang (杨立波) and his colleagues at the Center for Combinatorics, Nankai University, and of Shirley Entzminger.
Transparencies from recent talks
Enumerative Combinatorics : Some information on a two-volume book I have written. Includes new material related to Catalan numbers and new exercises on symmetric functions. Also includes a link to a preliminary version of the second edition of volume 1. The second edition is now in print!
Hyperplane arrangements: lecture notes for graduate students.
Bijective proof problems: a list of almost 250 problems on bijective proofs, with around 27 open problems (version of 18 August 2009)
Algebraic Combinatorics: information on an undergraduate textbook, including errata.
