Details: Product Description Gary Chartrand, Ping Zhang Review “This is an excellent Discrete Math book! Excellent choice of topics, right amount of examples and exercises. The topics flow smoothly. Clear exposition and pace!” Brian Kreeger, North Hennepin Community College Review “I have decided to use Chartrand and Zhang’s discrete math text in the fall semester. I am a fan of their books. I’ve been waiting for their discrete math text to be published and am looking forward to using it in the fall!” Kathleen McKeon, Connecticut College Review “This book lives up to my very high expectation of a textbook from Chartrand and Zhang. The exposition is wonderfully clear, especially with all these great examples. The collection and ordering of topics is perfect for my course and our students.” David Craft, Muskingum University Book Description Chartrand and Zhang's Discrete Mathematics presents a clearly written, student-friendly introduction to discrete mathematics. The authors draw from their background as researchers and educators to offer lucid discussions and descriptions fundamental to the subject of discrete mathematics. Unique among discrete mathematics textbooks for its treatment of proof techniques and graph theory, topics discussed also include logic, relations and functions (especially equivalence relations and objective functions), algorithms and analysis of algorithms, introduction to number theory, combinatorics (counting, the Pascal triangle, and the binomial theorem), discrete probability, partially ordered sets, lattices and Boolean algebras, cryptography, and finite-state machines. This highly versatile text provides mathematical background used in a wide variety of disciplines, including mathematics and mathematics education, computer science, biology, chemistry, engineering, communications, and business.Some of the major features and strengths of this textbook: Numerous carefully explained examples and applications facilitate learning, More than 1,600 exercises, ranging from elementary to challenging, are included with hints/answers to all odd-numbered exercises, Descriptions of proof techniques are accessible and lively, Students benefit from the historical discussions throughout the textbook, An Instructor's Solutions Manual contains complete solutions to all exercises.Table of Contents: 0.
