Publisher: Dover Publications 2005
Number of pages: 256
Discrete mathematics is an essential tool in many areas of computer science. Problems in discrete mathematics arise in programming languages, computer architecture, networking, distributed systems, database systems, AI, theoretical computer science, and other areas. This up-to-date text assists undergraduates in mastering the ideas and mathematical language to address problems that arise in the field's many applications. It consists of 4 units of study: counting and listing, functions, decision trees and recursion, and basic concepts of graph theory.
