Thoroughly revised for a one-semester course, this well- known and highly regarded book is an outstanding text for undergraduate discrete mathematics. It has been updated with new or extended discussions of order notation, generating functions, chaos, aspects of statistics, and computational biology. Written in a lively, clear style that talks to the reader, the book is unique for its emphasis on algorithmics and the inductive and recursive paradigms as central mathematical themes. It includes a broad variety of applications. A complete solution manual will be available to instructors.Maurer, Stephen B. is the author of 'Discrete Algorithmic Mathematics' with ISBN 9781568811666 and ISBN 1568811667.
