Book Description
Discrete mathematics is fundamental to computer science, and this uptodate text assists undergraduates in mastering the ideas and mathematical language to address problems that arise in the field's many applications. It consists of four units of study: counting and listing, functions, decision trees and recursion, and basic concepts of graph theory.
Discrete mathematics is an essential tool in almost all subareas of computer science. Interesting and challenging problems in discrete mathematics arise in programming languages, computer architecture, networking, distributed systems, database systems, AI, theoretical computer science, and other areas.
This textbook is the second part of the two series of book, used to teach twoquarter course sequence in discrete mathematics that includes Boolean arithmetic, combinatorics, elementary logic, induction, graph theory and finite probability in the University of California, San Diego (USCD). These courses are core undergraduate requirements for majors in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and MathematicsComputer Science.
This text, Mathematics for Algorithm and System Analysis, was developed for the second quarter and the other text, A Short Course in Discrete Mathematics was developed for the first quarter. With appropriate students, this text could be used without the first.
This book consists of four units of study (Counting and Listing  CL; Functions  Fn; Decision Trees and Recursion  DT; and Basic Concepts of Graph Theory  GT), each divided into four sections. Each section contains a representative selection of problems. These vary from basic to more difficult, including proofs for study by mathematics students or honors students. The first three sections in units CL and Fn are primarily a review of material in A Short Course in Discrete Mathematics needed for this course.
The review questions. 'Multiple Choice Questions for Review' appear at the end of each unit. The explanatory material in this book is directed towards giving students the mathematical language and sophistication to recognize and articulate the ideas behind these questions and to answer questions that are similar in concept and difficulty. Many variations of these questions have been successfully worked on exams by most beginning students using this book at UCSD.
