Overview

This is a topic that becomes increasingly important every year as the digital age extends and grows more encompassing in every facet of life

Discrete mathematics, the study of finite systems has become more important as the computer age has advanced, as computer arithmetic, logic, and combinatorics have become standard topics in the discipline. For mathematics majors it is one of the core required courses. This new edition will bring the outline into synch with Rosen, McGraw-Hill’s bestselling textbook in the field as well as up to speed in the current curriculum.



New material will include expanded coverage of logic, the rules of inference and basic types of proofs in mathematical reasoning. This will give students a better understanding of proofs of facts about sets and functions. There will be increased emphasis on discrete probability and aspects of probability theory, and greater accessibility to counting techniques.



This new edition features:





  • Counting chapter will have new material on generalized combinations


  • New chapter on computer arithmetic, with binary and hexagon addition and multiplication


  • New Cryptology chapter including substitution and RSA method


  • This outline is the perfect supplement to any course in discrete math and can also serve as a stand-alone textbook
