Editorial Review Product Description Discrete Mathematics Using a Computer offers a new, "hands-on" approach to teaching Discrete Mathematics. Using software that is freely available on Mac, PC and Unix platforms, the functional language Haskell allows students to experiment with mathematical notations and concepts -- a practical approach that provides students with instant feedback and allows lecturers to monitor progress easily. This second edition of the successful textbook contains significant additional material on the applications of formal methods to practical programming problems. There are more examples of induction proofs on small programs, as well as a new chapter showing how a mathematical approach can be used to motivate AVL trees, an important and complex data structure. Designed for 1st and 2nd year undergraduate students, the book is also well suited for self-study. No prior knowledge of functional programming is required; everything the student needs is either provided or can be picked up easily as they go along. Key features include:
Complete with an accompanying instructor's guide, available via the web, this volume is intended as the primary teaching text for Discrete Mathematics courses, but will also provide useful reading for Conversion Masters and Formal Methods courses.

Editorial Review Product Description Computing Curricula 2001 (CC2001), a joint undertaking of the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers/Computer Society (IEEE/CS) and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), identifies the essential material for an undergraduate degree in computer science. This Sixth Edition of Mathematical Structures for Computer Science covers all the topics in the CC2001 suggested curriculum for a one-semester intensive discrete structures course, and virtually everything suggested for a two-semester version of a discrete structures course. Gersting's text binds together what otherwise appears to be a collection of disjointed topics by emphasizing the following themes: Â• Importance of logical thinking Â• Power of mathematical notation Â• Usefulness of abstractions Customer Reviews (24)

Editorial Review Product Description Focussing on the manipulation and representation of geometrical objects, this book explores the application of geometry to computer graphics and computer-aided design (CAD). New features in this revised and updated edition include: the application of quaternions to computer graphics animation and orientation; discussions of the main geometric CAD surface operations and constructions: extruded, rotated and swept surfaces; offset surfaces; thickening and shelling; and skin and loft surfaces; an introduction to rendering methods in computer graphics and CAD: colour, illumination models, shading algorithms, silhouettes and shadows. Over 300 exercises are included, many of which encourage the reader to implement the techniques and algorithms discussed through the use of a computer package with graphing and computer algebra capabilities. A dedicated website also offers further resources and links to other useful websites. Customer Reviews (1)

Amazing book
Good enough
forward thinking book about using the computer for mathematics education
My favorite geometry textbook I strongly recommend this bookto anyone with interests in computer programming, geometry and physics. The unusual approach this book takes to the understanding of curved spaceis deceptively simple and surprisingly powerful.
Very good book to show how to use logo as a tool for math |

Editorial Review Product Description Graph study is discussed, including Euler and Hamilton cycles and trees. This is a vehicle for some easy proofs, as well as serving as another example of a data structure. Matrices and vectors are then defined. The book concludes with an introduction to cryptography, including the RSA cryptosystem, together with the necessary elementary number theory, e.g., Euclidean algorithm, Fermat's Little Theorem. Good examples occur throughout. At the end of every section there are two problem sets of equal difficulty. However, solutions are only given to the first set. References and index conclude the work. A math course at the college level is required to handle this text. College algebra would be the most helpful. |

Editorial Review Product Description
This two-volume textbook Comprehensive Mathematics for the Working Computer Scientist is a self-contained comprehensive presentation of mathematics including sets, numbers, graphs, algebra, logic, grammars, machines, linear geometry, calculus, ODEs, and special themes such as neural networks, Fourier theory, wavelets, numerical issues, statistics, categories, and manifolds. The concept framework is streamlined but defining and proving virtually everything. The style implicitly follows the spirit of recent topos-oriented theoretical computer science. Despite the theoretical soundness, the material stresses a large number of core computer science subjects, such as, for example, a discussion of floating point arithmetic, Backus-Naur normal forms, L-systems, Chomsky hierarchies, algorithms for data encoding, e.g., the Reed-Solomon code. The numerous course examples are motivated by computer science and bear a generic scientific meaning. This text is complemented by an online university course which covers the same theoretical content, however, in a totally different presentation. The student or working scientist who once gets involved in this text may at any time consult the online interface which comprises applets and other interactive tools. |

Concise and non-trivial He manages in a short text to cover a wide range of reasonably advanced issues, like the finite projective planes and magic squares. In keeping with many of the Springer maths texts, the level of analysis is not trivial. (Not a Dummy's book!) Still, with careful attention, a competent student should be able to assimilate these ideas. ... Read more |

Avoid this book, droogs 1) Abundant errors: I read the first 15 pages and found at least one *serious* typo per page (i.e. a typo that could impede learning). Plus, the grammar ranges from illegal to ambiguous. Thankfully, I was familiar with all of the material that I was reading -- were I not, severe confusion and discouragement would have been the result. 2) Poor examples: They're too abstract or too simple -- and there aren't even very many of them. Oftentimes, he contradicts what he's trying to illustrate due to a small oversight or typo. It's truly bad. 3) Gratuitous brevity (yes I know that may sound paradoxical): The author uses compound sentences in his definitions; sometimes going as far as to define two or three concepts IN THE SAME SENTENCE! It's infuriating. 4) Chapter Zero: This deserves its own rant section. Chapter zero contains nearly all of the material from the first four chapters of my current textbook: Logic, Set theory, Induction, Relations, etc. Somehow the author crams all of it into about 24 pages (plus 4 or 5 pages of exercises). He fails at clarity or lucidity. It's an ambomination -- it reads like lecture notes (you know, the ones only the professor looks at). OK -- I WANTED to like this book. It's kind of cute, I'll admit it. And the price is sweet. But friends, you get what you pay for. Even after I came across the first 5 or so serious typos I was willing to forgive. Eventually, the sheer amount of contradictory examples and ambiguous sentences riled me up so much that I considered tearing the book in half. Really. I doubt I'll ever open the thing again.
Excellent Text
Too succinct for the discrete novice That book overcomes the two shortcomings of this one: for aself-proclaimed introductory work on discrete mathematics, this textcontains too few worked out in-chapter examples, and too many omitted stepsin the reasoning.On this latter point, there were many times my readingbrought me to the phrase "It follows from the definition that..."or "obviously..." when, for me, it didn't follow, or it wasn'tobvious. Contrary to another reviewer's assessment, I found quite a lot oftypos, but none too serious.To its credit, the book does contain a lot ofend-of-chapter problems with solutions, and it is inexpensive. The authorof the text I review here wrote another in this field, the Schaum's outlineseries offering with ISBN 007003575X, which is not the Schaum's text Irecommend above.I express no opinion on this other work of his.

Editorial Review Product Description Juraj Hromkovic takes the reader on an elegant route through the theoretical fundamentals of computer science. The author shows that theoretical computer science is a fascinating discipline, full of spectacular contributions and miracles. The book also presents the development of the computer scientist's way of thinking as well as fundamental concepts such as approximation and randomization in algorithmics, and the basic ideas of cryptography and interconnection network design. |
