Hi! After nearly a year of final adjustments, copy-editing, and production work at the Press, the book Analytic Combinatorics eventually became available in January 2009. Cambridge University Press has done a great job and our editor, David Tranah, was a great help, throughout the whole process.

I'd like to remind everybody that, thanks to a special arrangement with CUP, we, authors, retain the non-exclusive copyright of the electronic edition. Thus, the manuscript continues to be freely available to individual users from the authors' home pages.

I plan to maintain a page with some goodies at the book's URL, from which the entire text (about 13MB in PDF) can be downloaded.

In this blog, I hope to report on new results relative to analytic combinatorics, possibly discuss the choice of topics in the book and/or stories. Comments are also most welcome regarding the contents of the book and possible mistakes or oversights--we hope to have a new edition out some time in the future. It'd be nice also, if people who teach from the book were kind enough to drop a line here, possibly with a pointer to their home/course page.
