Helps students focus on fundamental concepts without becoming bogged down discrets special cases, weakly-motivated examples, and applications. This book is written at an appropriate level for a wide variety of majors and non-majors, and assumes a college algebra course as a prerequisite. Gives students valuable information for future computer science careers. You have successfully signed out and will be required rosss sign back in should you need to download more resources.

Combining a careful mathemayics of topics with previews of their genuine applications in computer science, this text, more than any other book in its field, is written at an elementary level with a strong pedagogical focus. Instructor resource file download The work is protected by local and international copyright laws and is provided solely for the use of instructors in teaching their courses and assessing student learning. The emphasis on proof lays the foundation for mathematical thinking.
Semigroups, Machines, and Languages. Vignettes of mathematical history open each chapter, providing students with a practical background of how these ideas were developed. The dialogue on proof and proof techniques continues here with exercises that require students to complete partial proofs and analyze proof strategies. End-of-chapter material includes Tips for Proofs, a summary of Key Ideas, and a Self-Test, matthematics contains a set of conceptual review questions to help students identify and synthesize the main ideas of each chapter.
Additional number theory —Provides more information on the properties of integers, including base n representations; and gives more contexts for isomorphism. Limits coverage of abstract algebra and gives applications to the important topics of finite state machines, and error correcting and detecting codes.

Decoding and Error Correction. Additional exercises help students develop conjectures and how to prove or disprove them. It limits its area and coverage of topics to those that students will actually utilize, and emphasizes both basic theory and applications, giving a firm foundation for more advanced courses, as well as providing an excellent reference work for those courses. Expanded coverage of coding —Covers all of its aspects, including efficiency, effectiveness, and security.
A set of coding exercises for each chapter is also included in Appendix C. Sign In We’re sorry!
