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 textbook covers the standard topics in discrete mathematics: logic, sets, proof techniques, basic number theory, functions, relations, and elementary combinatorics. It explains and clarifies the unwritten conventions in mathematics.
by Ken Bogart, Cliff Stein - Dartmouth College
It gives thorough coverage to topics that have great importance to computer scientists and provides a motivating computer science example for each math topic. Contents: Counting; Cryptography and Number Theory; Reflections on Logic and Proof.
