Product Description

From the Back Cover

Too often, computing students’ first experiences of university mathematics will be of abstract theoretical concepts that appear irrelevant to their chosen course of study. This book is a concise introduction to the key mathematical ideas that underpin computer science, continually stressing the application of discrete mathematics to computing. It is suitable for students with little or no knowledge of mathematics, and covers the key concepts in a simple and straightforward way.

The theoretical ideas are constantly reinforced by worked examples and each chapter concludes with a mini case study showing a particular application. This provides further motivation to the reader to engage with the mathematical ideas involved, as well as demonstrating how the mathematics can be applied within a computing context. The book also contains carefully selected exercises for which full worked solutions are provided

Rod Haggarty is Deputy Head of the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at Oxford Brookes University. He has extensive experience of teaching undergraduate mathematics, and has taught discrete mathematics to computing students for many years.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an exceptional book, clearly written, comprehensive and to-the-point. Chapters are short and digestible, examples are useful and progressive. At the end of each chapter there's a 1-2 page summary (very helpful) and a section on an application of the Maths onto computer science. For somebody who hasn't really looked at discrete maths since university a good 20 years ago, this is a perfect refresher. For students or professionals looking for a quick but thorough guide this is a perfect fit. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
This book is very well written. I had already covered the first 4 chapters within 20 minutes...The language is simple and straightforward to understand, although you do have to concentrate and try to understand the concepts, coz you'll get lost otherwise. All in all, i recommend this book !
