Combinatorica is an international journal of mathematics, publishing papers in the fields of combinatorics and computer science. It started in 1981, with László Babai and László Lovász as the editors-in-chief with Paul Erdős as honorary editor-in-chief. The current editors-in-chief are Imre Bárány and József Solymosi. The advisory board consists of Ronald Graham, Gyula O. H. Katona, Miklós Simonovits, Vera Sós, and Endre Szemerédi. It is published by the János Bolyai Mathematical Society and Springer Verlag.
