By David Makinson

This easy-to-follow textbook introduces the mathematical language, wisdom and problem-solving abilities that undergraduates have to research computing. The language is partially qualitative, with strategies corresponding to set, relation, functionality and recursion/induction; however it is additionally partially quantitative, with rules of counting and finite chance. Entwined with either are the basic notions of common sense and their use for illustration and evidence. beneficial properties: teaches finite math as a language for considering, up to wisdom and abilities to be received; makes use of an intuitive technique with a spotlight on examples for all common strategies; brings out the interaction among the qualitative and the quantitative in all parts lined, relatively within the therapy of recursion and induction; balances rigorously the summary and urban, rules and proofs, particular proof and basic views; contains spotlight containers that bring up universal queries and transparent confusions; presents a number of routines, with chosen ideas.
