The goal of this text is a focused introduction to the primary themes in a discrete mathematics course, as introduced through extensive applications, expansive discussion, and detailed exercise sets. These themes include mathematical reasoning, combinatorial analysis, discrete structures, algorithmic thinking, and enhanced problem-solving skills through modeling. Its intent is to demonstrate the relevance and practicality of discrete mathematics to all students. The fifth edition includes a more thorough and linear presentation of logic, proof types and proof writing, and mathematical reasoning. This enhanced coverage will provide students with a solid understanding of the material as it relates to their immediate field of study and other relevant subjects. The inclusion of applications and examples to key topics has been significantly addressed to add clarity to every subject. True to the fourth edition, the text specific web site supplements the subject matter in meaningful ways, offering additional material for students and instructors. Discrete math is an active subject with new discoveries made every year. The continual growth and updates to the web site reflect the active nature of the topics being discussed. This text is designed for a one- or two-term introductory discrete mathematics course to be taken by students in a wide variety of majors, including computer science, mathematics, and engineering. College Algebra is the only explicit prerequisite.

The pages fall right out, which isn't even the worst part. I could live with that. What I can't live with is the fact that the ink levels on these pages are so terrible that I can't even read the homework problems assigned to me. This product is absolute garbage. It looks like this book came from an illegitimate warehouse with poor low quality ink and pages and they were extra cheap and stingy with the ink.

Very difficult material
The mathematics in this book were very discrete and much too abstract for a beginner to understand...

avoid the international edition
although the description said the contents are the same, the pages and questions are out of order. I was unable to use this book for my class.

Beware of international editions. The one my son received did not have the same questions in it as the american one and therefore we had to buy the american edition as his instructor required these questions be anwsered as part of his assignment.
