A Spiral Workbook for Discrete Mathematics
by Harris Kwong
Publisher: Open SUNY Textbooks 2015
Number of pages: 307
This is a text that covers the standard topics in a sophomore-level course in discrete mathematics: logic, sets, proof techniques, basic number theory, functions, relations, and elementary combinatorics, with an emphasis on motivation. It explains and clarifies the unwritten conventions in mathematics, and guides the students through a detailed discussion on how a proof is revised from its draft to a final polished form.

In this book, four basic areas of discrete mathematics are presented: Counting and Listing, Functions, Decision Trees and Recursion, and Basic Concepts in Graph Theory. At the end of each unit is a list of Multiple Choice Questions for Review.

This is a text on discrete mathematics. It includes chapters on logic, set theory and strings and languages. There are some chapters on finite-state machines, some chapters on Turing machines and computability, and a couple of chapters on codes.

The book about main ideas on generating functions and some of their uses in discrete mathematics. Generating functions are a bridge between discrete mathematics and continuous analysis. The book is suitable for undergraduates.
Discrete mathematics is the study of mathematical structures that are fundamentally discrete rather than continuous. This book will help you think well about discrete problems: problems where tools like calculus fail because there's no continuity.
