Discrete Mathematics And Its Applications_ 6th edition

A discrete mathematics course has more than one purpose. Students should learn a particular
set of mathematical facts and how to apply them; more importantly, such a course should teach
students how to think logically and mathematically. To achieve these goals, this text stresses
mathematical reasoning and the different ways problems are solved. Five important themes
are interwoven in this text: mathematical reasoning, combinatorial analysis, discrete structures,
algorithmic thinking, and applications and modeling.
