This text provides a balanced survey of major sub-fields within discrete mathematics. It demonstrates the utility of discrete mathematics in the solutions of real-world problems in diverse areas such as zoology, linguistics and business. Over 200 new problems have been added to this third edition.
Written in an accessible style, this text provides a complete coverage of discrete mathematics and its applications at an appropriate level of rigour. The book discusses algebraic structures, mathematical logic, lattices, Boolean algebra, graph theory, automata theory, grammars and recurrence relations. It covers the important topics such as coding theory, Dijkstra’s shortest path algorithm, reverse polish notation, Warshall’s algorithm, Menger’s theorem, Turing machine, and LR(k) parsers, which form a part of the fundamental applications of discrete mathematics in computer science. In addition, Pigeonhole principle, ring homomorphism, field and integral domain, trees, network flows, languages, and recurrence relations. The text is supported with a large number of examples, worked-out problems and diagrams that help students understand the theoretical explanations. The book is intended as a text for postgraduate students of mathematics, computer science, and computer applications. In addition, it will be extremely useful for the undergraduate students of computer science and engineering.
Wallis's book on discrete mathematics is a resource for an introductory course in a subject fundamental to both mathematics and computer science, a course that is expected not only to cover certain specific topics but also to introduce students to important modes of thought specific to each discipline . . . Lower-division undergraduates through graduate students. —Choice reviews (Review of the First Edition) Very appropriately entitled as a 'beginner's guide', this textbook presents itself as the first exposure to discrete mathematics and rigorous proof for the mathematics or computer science student. —Zentralblatt Math (Review of the First Edition) This second edition of A Beginner’s Guide to Discrete Mathematics presents a detailed guide to discrete mathematics and its relationship to other mathematical subjects including set theory, probability, cryptography, graph theory, and number theory. This textbook has a distinctly applied orientation and explores a variety of applications. Key Features of the second edition: * Includes a new chapter on the theory of voting as well as numerous new examples and exercises throughout the book * Introduces functions, vectors, matrices, number systems, scientific notations, and the representation of numbers in computers * Provides examples which then lead into easy practice problems throughout the text and full exercise at the end of each chapter * Full solutions for practice problems are provided at the end of the book This text is intended for undergraduates in mathematics and computer science, however, featured special topics and applications may also interest graduate students.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the Third International Conference on Sequences and Their Applications, SETA 2004, held in Seoul, Korea in October 2004. The 30 revised full papers presented together with 4 invited survey articles were carefully selected during two rounds of reviewing and improvement from initially 59 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on complexity of sequences, perfect sequences, sequence construction, sequences modulo z, sequence generator properties and applications, multi-dimensional sequences, optics and OFDM applications, and polynomials and functions.
Discrete Mathematics and its Applications 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. The book is appropriate 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.
