Susanna S. Epp
With its emphasis on clarity and precision, the fifth edition of DISCRETE MATHEMATICS WITH APPLICATIONS lays a solid groundwork for computer science and advanced mathematics courses in the digital age. Not only does Susanna Epp introduce the reader to the fundamental concepts in discrete mathematics, but also to the logic that motivates mathematical inquiry. The study of proof and logic helps students increase their capacity for abstract thought. Students learn that the notions of discrete mathematics underpin and are vital to today's science and technology as they study topics like logic circuits and computer addition, algorithm analysis, recursive reasoning, computability, automata, cryptography, and combinatorics.
