Dai, Oklahoma State University “This text is better than the current one that I am using in the sense that it has been written in a less pure mathematics text style, which will be much more receivable for the student outside elsevie mathematical major. The plenty of exercises provided allow instructor to have more flexibility to choose.

The author’s easy going but interesting writing style will certainly make instructor’s job easier. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

For a discrete math book, this one is pretty good it’s far better than the last one I read. From the Preface on, the author states exactly what he’s going to do and whydoes it, and discree summarizes it.


This gives mathemqtics book good structure and is an excellent teaching methodology. There are oodles of examples and tons of exercises odd numbers answered. Each section has its own exercises as do the applicatilns themselves. There are also more challenging “Supplementary Exercises” following the chapter exercises. To emphasize the applications orientation, he also provides “Computer Assignments” at the end of each chapter and computer algorithmic examples within each chapter. In what I consider to be an odd twist, he also includes a set of writing projects at the end of each chapter.

Unfortunately, there’s one big negative to the book: These range from inconsequential typos through errors in mathematical definitions and proofs to wrong answers for exercises. For instance, the first serious contextual error I found is on page Usually, these types of errors are easy to spot from the surrounding, correct, material.

For errors in exercises, the first several I found are: To add a bit more information to the raw data of these reviews, I’ve mapped the universe of all possible readers of this book onto a set of x-y axes. Let the x-axis run from “non-Math-types” up through “Math-types. This group will probably not appreciate the book.

It’s definitely aimed at the application of discrete math instead of at the proving of it. There are many proofs in the book, but there are also a lot kosshy.

There doesn’t seem to be any pattern to this. At a guess, I’d say that if a proof isn’t easy, the author just leaves it out.

Regarding the intellectual level of the text, Quadrant Is might be OK diiscrete it. Some of the material is fairly easy, but other parts are pretty challenging: Overall, this appliations could probably get by with the book, they would just complain a lot: The intellectual level of the book follows the same pattern for this group as for the Quadrant Is, above.

The application focus would please the Quadrant IIs more, though. This is the group that should get the most out of the book. The book is well-structured and complete and leads the reader through a reasonable sequence from basics to advanced topics. For the most part, the author is careful to keep the intellectual and theoretical levels reasonable though I’m still lost regarding Relations, Graphs, Digraphs, and Formal Languages and Finite-State Machines — and his recurring motif of Fibonacci-related stuff is tough.


Assuming most people will use the book in qith classroom setting, the errors in it shouldn’t be a problem since the instructor should be able to point them out. This group can be lumped in with the Quadrant Is: Appljcations IVs could get by with the book, but would complain a bit.

Regardless of its errors, this is a pretty good book. The potential audience covers the entire universe of readers with the best target being Quadrant III “normal” people. It’s written well enough to be good for university use as well as for personal reading mostly.

Without the number of errors, I would have given this a rating of 4 stars out of 5. Because of them, I’m reducing my rating to 3 stars out of 5. I am happy with my product.
