The aesthetic comparison alone, compared to my old manuals, is impressive. Here we have a book which has focused on the very finer details: excellent layout, enjoyable font, written and indented formulas and perfectly clear pictures. The smooth paper is very nice and it has a sturdy binding but not too stiff.
Since the topic itself has complexity in its DNA, it is presented well, makes it interesting (almost intriguing) for students in the first year of Computer Science ( the course on which the book is based).
The approach is a bit outside the box, since it presents examples first - almost all the typical courses in Italian universities do this after the mathematical theory/algebraic.
The book is divided into 2 parts practically of the same length and number of pages.
In the first part the reader is exposed to: examples from games at the Tower of Hanoi, all with resolution explained in detail, both in words and through equations and algorithms.
They are also offered exercises to be solved and ideas for projects. The first, fortunately, have solutions and answers in Appendix.
The second is the mathematical theory which acts as a glue to algorithms - from algebra to number theory of quantifiers.
Everything is explained in English but it is easy to understand by non-native English speakers (just a decent knowledge of language is necessary).Read more ›
