Presenting conceptual chains in an orderly and gradual fashion, this informal but thorough introduction to discrete mathematics offers a careful treatment of the basics essential for computer science such as relations, induction, counting techniques, logic, and graphs. It also covers the more advanced topics of Boolean algebra and permutation groups, and comes with a wealth of examples to reinforce material and to allow readers to view topics from several perspectives. The book includes new coverage of probability that examines such areas as random variables and distributions and new sections on the Euclidean algorithm and loop invariants, providing a powerful tool for designing algorithms and verifying their correctness.
