* Far more "user friendly" than the vast majority of similar books, this volume is truly written with the unsophisticated reader in mind. The pace is leisurely, but the authors are rigorous and maintain a serious attitude towards theorem proving throughout. Emphasizes "Active Reading" throughout, a skill vital to success in learning how to write proofs. Offers two sections on probability (2.4 and 2.5). Moves material on depth-first search, which previously comprised an entire (very short) chapter, to an earlier chapter where it fits more naturally. Rewrites section on RNA chains to include a new (and easier) algorithm for the recovery of an RNA chain from its complete enzyme digest. Provides true/false questions (with all answers in the back of the book) in every section. Features an appendix on matrices. A useful reference for mathematics enthusiasts who want to learn how to write proofs. *

Download How to Prove It: A Structured Approach - Daniel J. VellemanGeared to preparing students to make the transition from solving problems to proving theorems, this text teaches them the techniques needed to read and write proofs. The book begins with the basic concepts of logic and set theory, to familiarize students with the language of mathematics and how it is interpreted. These concepts are used as the basis for a step-by-step breakdown of the most important techniques used in constructing proofs. To help students construct |

Download Discrete Mathematics - John A. DosseyThe strong algorithmic emphasis of "Discrete Mathematics" is independent of a specific programming language, allowing students to concentrate on foundational problem-solving and analytical skills. Instructors get the topical breadth and organizational flexibility to tailor the course to the level and interests of their students. Algorithms are presented in English, eliminating the need for knowledge of a particular programming language. Computational and algorithmic |

Download Discrete Mathematics - Amanda Chetwynd, Peter Diggle, ChetwyndAs an introduction to discrete mathematics, this text provides a straightforward overview of the range of mathematical techniques available to students. Assuming very little prior knowledge, and with the minimum of technical complication, it gives an account of the foundations of modern mathematics: logic; sets; relations and functions. It then develops these ideas in the context of three particular topics: combinatorics (the mathematics of counting); probability (the |

Download Graph Theory: A Problem Oriented Approach - Daniel MarcusCombining the features of a textbook with those of a problem workbook, this text for mathematics, computer science and engineering students presents a natural, friendly way to learn some of the essential ideas of graph theory. The material is explained using 360 strategically placed problems with connecting text, which is then supplemented by 280 additional homework problems. This problem-oriented format encourages active involvement by the reader while always giving |
