The volume, From Combinatorics to Philosophy: The Legacy of G.-C. Rota, edited by Ernesto Damiani, Ottavio D'Antona, Vincenzo Marra, and Fabrizio Palombi, will appear after the conference (June 2009). Please check the Springer site for more information.

 

Please note that Cambridge University press will publish soon the book Combinatorics: The Rota Way authored by J. Kung, G.-C. Rota, and C. Yan.

An account on Rota's mathematical and philosophical thought can be found in La Stella e l'Intero - La Ricerca di Gian-Carlo Rota tra Matematica e Fenomenologia (F. Palombi, Bollati Boringhieri Editore, 2003).

The interested reader is referred to Algebraic Combinatorics And Computer Science - A Tribute To Gian-Carlo Rota (H. Crapo, D. Senato Eds.), published by Springer in 2001.
