Based on the ACM guidelines, Discrete Math will help readers master and apply the central topics of discrete math. As they progress through the early chapters, they'll quickly learn how to think and write about mathematics. The book then explores abstract mathematics, providing a detailed look at sets and functions. Readers will also find in-depth discussions on probabilities and their applications to games of chance. And they'll discover the basic techniques of graph theory and how to apply them using puzzles and games.
