Recent interest in questions concerning a variety of statistics in compositions followed sustained research on pattern avoidance in permutations and words. This book provides a comprehensive resource for anyone who is interested in this new area of research. Each chapter presents an overview of relevant research, illustrates definitions and tools with many examples, and gives proofs for known results. Six major areas are covered: compositions with restricted arrangement, compositions with restricted parts, statistics on compositions, pattern avoidance, random compositions, and variations of compositions. The text also includes applications and open questions for further research.
