This is the book on a newly emerging field of discrete differential geometry. It surveys the fascinating connections between discrete models in differential geometry and complex analysis, integrable systems and applications in computer graphics.

The book about main ideas on generating functions and some of their uses in discrete mathematics. Generating functions are a bridge between discrete mathematics and continuous analysis. The book is suitable for undergraduates.

This book is an introduction to the mathematics used in the design of computer and network hardware and software. We will survey topics in computer arithmetic and data representation, logic and set theory, graph theory and computer measurement.
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 where tools like calculus fail because there's no continuity.
