Still an Excellent text Zorak Used for the Math-22 course at Tufts in theearly 1990s (Prof Martin Guterman, we missyou dearly).Comprehensive and outstanding introductionto Discrete Mathematics. Written in 1989 butdon't let its age discourage you as the materialand presentation are timeless.. Mandatory for school I only used this book because a class required it. The descriptions were terrible and it was such a bore and I love math. I resold it when I was done.. Discrete Mathematics This is a friendly book for both non-Math and Math majors alike.This book is not to be used as a substitute for a course in foundations of higher mathematics. I think this book is essential for those Math majors planning to take Probability sometime soon in the future.
Applications and references cover a wide variety of realistic situations. Coverage of mathematical induction includes the stroung form of induction, and new sections have been added on nonhomogeneous recurrence relations and the essentials of probability.. All topics are motivated by concrete examples, often emphasizing the interplay between computer science and mathematics. Sets, proof techniques, logic, combinatorics, and graph theory are covered in concise form. Intended for a one-term course in discrete mathe
