Discrete mathematics is the study of mathematical structures that are fundamentally discrete rather than continuous. This book will help you think well about discrete problems: problems like chess, in which the moves you make are exact, problems where tools like calculus fail because there's no continuity, problems that appear all the time in games, puzzles, and computer science.

This first-year course in discrete mathematics requires no calculus or computer programming experience. The approach stresses finding efficient algorithms, rather than existential results. Provides an introduction to constructing proofs...
