Overview

This "tried and true"book offers an extremely readable coverage of the principles of finite mathematics and their applications in business, social science, and the life sciences. The book divides naturally into four parts. The first part consists of linear mathematics: linear equations, matrices, and linear programming (chapters 1-4); the second part is devoted to probability and statistics (chapter 5-7); the third covers topics utilizing the ideas of the first two parts (chapters 8-10); and the fourth covers topics from discrete mathematics sometimes included in the modern finite mathematics curriculum. Linear Equations and Straight Lines, Matrices, Linear Programming, A Geometric Approach, the Simplex Method, Sets and Counting, Probability, Probability and Statistics, Markov Processes, the Theory of Games, the Mathematics of Finance, Difference Equations and Mathematical Models, Logic and Graphs. MARKET For anyone interested in finite mathematics applying to business, social sciences or the life sciences.
