This lively introductory text exposes the student in the humanities to the world of discrete mathematics. A problem-solving based approach grounded in the ideas of George Pólya are at the heart of this book. Students learn to handle and solve new problems on their own. A straightforward, clear writing style and well-crafted examples with diagrams invite the students to develop into precise and critical thinkers. Particular attention has been given to the material that some students find challenging, such as proofs. This book illustrates how to spot invalid arguments, to enumerate possibilities, and to construct probabilities. It also presents case studies to students about the possible detrimental effects of ignoring these basic principles. The book is invaluable for a discrete and finite mathematics course at the freshman undergraduate level or for self-study since there are full solutions to the exercises in an appendix. "Written with clarity, humor and relevant real-world examples, Basic Discrete Mathematics is a wonderful introduction to discrete mathematical reasoning."- Arthur Benjamin, Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College, and author of The Magic of Math

This books gives an introduction to discrete mathematics for beginning undergraduates. One of original features of this book is that it begins with a presentation of the rules of logic as used in mathematics. Many examples of formal and informal proofs are given. With this logical framework firmly in place, the book describes the major axioms of set theory and introduces the natural numbers. The rest of the book is more standard. It deals with functions and relations, directed and undirected graphs, and an introduction to combinatorics. There is a section on public key cryptography and RSA, with complete proofs of Fermat's little theorem and the correctness of the RSA scheme, as well as explicit algorithms to perform modular arithmetic. The last chapter provides more graph theory. Eulerian and Hamiltonian cycles are discussed. Then, we study flows and tensions and state and prove the max flow min-cut theorem. We also discuss matchings, covering, bipartite graphs.

University studies in computing require the ability to pass from a concrete problem to an abstract representation, reason with the abstract structure, and return with useful solutions to the specific situation.The tools for developing these skills are in part qualitative concepts such as set, relation, function, and structures such as trees and well-founded orders. They are also in part quantitative notably elementary combinatorics and finite probability. Recurring in all of these are instruments of proof, both purely logical ones (such as proof by contradiction) and mathematical (the various forms of induction).Features: Explains the basic mathematical tools required by students as they set out in their studies of Computer or Information Science Explores the interplay between qualitative thinking and calculation Teaches the material as a language for thinking, as much as knowledge to be acquired Uses an intuitive approach with a focus on examples for all general concepts Provides numerous exercises, solutions and proofs to deepen and test the reader 's understanding Includes highlight boxes that raise common queries and clear away confusions Tandems with additional electronic resources including slides on author's website http: //david.c.makinson.googlepages.com This easy-to-follow text allows readers to carry out their computing studies with a clear understanding of the basic finite mathematics and logic that they will need. Written explicitly for undergraduates, it requires only a minimal mathematical background and is ideal for self-study as well as classroom use.

As 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 mathematics of chance) and graph theory (the mathematics of connections in networks). Worked examples and graded exercises are used throughout to develop ideas and concepts. The format of this book is such that it can be easily used as the basis for a complete modular course in discrete mathematics.

Discrete Mathematics covers such a wide range of topics that it is difficult to give a simple definition of the subject. Whereas calculus deals with continuous or even smooth objects, discrete mathematics deals with things that come in "chunks" that can be counted. We will be a lot more precise about just what sort of "chunks" we are dealing with in the later chapters. If your mathematical background is only high school calculus you could well believe that mathematics is only about numbers functions and formulas for solving problems. If this is the case, the topics in this book may be quite a surprise because for mathemati­cians, computer scientists and engineers, Discrete Mathematics includes logic, set theory, enumeration, networks, automata, for­mal languages and many other discrete structures. That is what this book is about. On the other hand, in 19 lectures we can only present an introduction to the subject and we must leave other important topics such as graph theory, error-correcting codes, discrete probability theory and applications to theoretical computer science to a sec­ond or third course. The topics covered are set theory, logic, Boolean algebra, count­ing, generating functions, recurrence relations, finite automata and formal languages with a lot of emphasis on counting. The set theory and logic is basic material which will be useful many courses besides Discrete Mathematics. Counting problems which look quite hard when stated in ordinary English can often be solved easily when translated into the language of set theory. We give many examples that reduce to counting the number of functions of various types between sets, or counting the number of subsets of a set.
