Concrete Mathematics: A Foundation for Computer Science

Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. I’m still working my way through this book — it’s supposed to be a precursor to the Art of Computer Programming, to give you the math foundation you need.

I bought it intending to use it for high school discrete math class, but it ended up being a bit too compacted an explanation with a bit of an assumption that most discrete math was already known.

Calculus is frequently used in the explanations and exercises. And if you do report an error via email, please do not include attachments of any kind; your message should be readable on brand-X operating systems for all values of X.


Mathematical notation is turned into gibberish. This book introduces the mathematics that supports advanced computer programming and the analysis of algorithms.

Dec 02, Peb rated it it was amazing. D learning math would never be this fun. Overall, worth every penny. Particularly enjoyable are the marginal graffiti contributed by students who have taken courses based on this material.

If you would like to solve the exercises, then here’s to many a rainy Sunday afternoons! In either case please include your postal address, so that I can mail an official certificate of deposit as a token of thanks for any improvements to which you have contributed.

The terseness is also a double-edged sword, as sometimes I found it useful as an extra opportunity to practice the taught methods to see if I could come to the same result.

Is this feature helpful? Especially the sometimes tangential and sometimes downright funny graffitis. This file was generated by the TeX file errata Aug 24, Siam Ramasamy is currently reading it Shelves: I haven’t read the whole thing, but have read a number of the sections that were of particular interest to me especially the chapter on generating functions.


Rosen Discrete Math, Cormen Algorithms will find this book both terrifyingly terse and frustratingly paced. I recommend this ckncrete for developers confronted with algorithm optimization problems, as a well as for a different take on parts of discrete math, and definitely for students coming out of a US state school Concreet program, the last which this book complements very well. Ships from and sold by Amazon. The second edition includes important new material about the revolutionary Gosper-Zeilberger algorithm for mechanical summation.

Shafi Hossain rated it really liked it Dec 25, If you are lazy, forget about it. I use the word remedial here in the sense that I felt that I was missing a critical foundation in the mathematical analysis and derivation of algorithms, even after the course-work of that degree.
