In a comprehensive yet easy-to-follow manner, Discrete Mathematics for New Technology follows the progression from the basic mathematical concepts covered by the GCSE in the UK and by high-school algebra in the USA to the more sophisticated mathematical concepts examined in the latter stages of the book. The book punctuates the rigorous treatment of theory with frequent uses of pertinent examples and exercises, enabling readers to achieve a feel for the subject at hand. The exercise hints and solutions are provided at the end of the book. Topics covered include logic and the nature of mathematical proof, set theory, relations and functions, matrices and systems of linear equations, algebraic structures, Boolean algebras, and a thorough treatise on graph theory. Although aimed primarily at computer science students, the structured development of the mathematics enables this text to be used by undergraduate mathematicians, scientists, and others who require an understanding of discrete mathematics. *Author: Garnier, R./ Garnier, Rowan/ Taylor, J. *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 696 *Publication Date: 1992/05/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.15 x 6.18 x 1.48 inches
From the Publisher:
Discrete Mathematics for New Technology has been designed to cover the core mathematics requirement for undergraduate computer science students in the UK and the USA. This has been approached in a comprehensive way whilst maintaining an easy to follow progression from the basic mathematical concepts covered by the GCSE in the UK and by high-school algebra in the USA, to the more sophisticated mathematical concepts examined in the latter stages of the book. The rigorous treatment of theory is punctuated by frequent use of pertinent examples. This is then reinforced with exercises to allow the reader to achieve a "feel" for the subject at hand. Hints and solutions are provided for these brain-teasers at the end of the book. Although aimed primarily at computer science students, the structured development of the mathematics enables this text to be used by undergraduate mathematicians, scientists and others who require an understanding of discrete mathematics. The topics covered include: logic and the nature of mathematical proof set theory, relations and functions, matrices and systems of linear equations, algebraic structures, Boolean algebras and a thorough treatise on graph theory. The authors have extensive experience of teaching undergraduate mathematics at colleges and universities in the British and American systems. They have developed and taught courses for a varied of non-specialists and have established reputations for presenting rigorous mathematical concepts in a manner which is accessible to this audience. Their current research interests lie in the fields of algebra, topology and mathematics education. Discrete Mathematics for New Technology is therefore a rare thing; areadable, friendly textbook designed for non-mathematicians, presenting material which is at the foundations of mathematics itself. It is essential reading.
