Professor Dominic Welsh has made significant contributions to the fields of combinatorics and discrete probability, including matroids, complexity, and percolation, and has taught, influenced and inspired generations of students and researchers in mathematics. This volume summarizes and reviews the consistent themes from his work through a series of articles written by renowned experts. These articles contain original research work, set in a broader context by the inclusion of review material. As a reference text in its own right, this book will be valuable to academic researchers, research students, and others seeking an introduction to the relevant contemporary aspects of these fields.
