I really like how the answers to selected exercises in the book are not just the answers, but the steps used to get to the solution. This is a great way to learn how to do the problems well. The text had been very useful in my other computer science courses.

It has an engaging introduction. From the looks of it, I foresee it being a good educational tool. Gossett's book is directed at the intersection of 2 disciplines - pure mathematics and computer science. Students of the former are used to strict expositions based on rigourous unfoldings of logic, usually held together by fiducial markers called theorems. CS students typically have had texts that played a little looser, indulging in some handwaving.

For the present reader, you get the strict logic. And the understanding that all CS is built on the conceptual foundations of discrete maths. The book deliberately starts off easily, with set and logic concepts you may have encountered in high school. Number theory is then quickly built up. You should appreciate that a CS education also involves a good understanding of probability.

The book is long, but it has limits and you should understand what those are. Gossett goes up to the boundaries of information theory, by mentioning some of the base concepts in it. Claude Shannon gets a brief mention. However, to keep the book's length tractable, it foreswears off any deeper foray into this vast and fascinating field.

Ditto for cryptography. Number theory is its underpinning. But only a quick summary is given of important cryptographic methods. Public key infrastructure and RSA are profiled in a mere 2 pages.

Note however that the descriptions given in those pages are as concise and understandable as anything you are likely to read at this level. As a practical matter, if the book whets your appetite for information theory or cryptography, that is all to the good. It gives you a solid basis for serious study of them, and there are a plentitude of other texts devoted to those subjects.

Gossett also supplies many problems for each chapter of his book, making it suitable as the main text for an undergraduate course. The level of difficulty varies. Some problems are trivial, while others get quite involved. But those books are quite forbidding for many undergrads. Gossett's text is a more realistic choice. Go to Amazon. Back to top.

Discrete Mathematics with Proof, 2nd Edition

Eric Gossett. A prerequisite for this book includes completion of the introductory calculus sequence. Detailed solutions are also available in the back of the book for selected exercises. Also, many worked examples can be found throughout, which are used to motivate the presented theorems and illustrate the conclusion of a theorem. Discrete Mathematics with Proof, Second Edition continues to facilitate an up-to-date understanding of this important topic, exposing readers to a wide range of modern and technological applications. The book begins with an introductory chapter that provides an accessible explanation of discrete mathematics. Subsequent chapters explore additional related topics including counting, finite probability theory, recursion, formal models in computer science, graph theory, trees, the concepts of functions, and relations.
