Essential Discrete Mathematics
Publication Date 1 Jan 2003
OverviewWritten for undergraduate one-semester introductory courses in discrete mathematics designated for computer science students, this text introduces the mathematics of computer science and prepares students for the mathematics they are likely to encounter in later courses. It includes applications that are specific to computer science. Exercises are provided, including programming assignments that promote immediate use of the topics covered. Students can start with easy problems to build their confidence and their understanding and then move on to more challenging exercises which aim to build their problem solving abilities. "Reader checks" throughout the text provide short questions that students can stop and answer to be sure that they are ready to continue.
