  • Includes an extensive glossary for every chapter
  • Extensive list of important formulas and theorems related to the field
  • Complete explanations and descriptions of every algorithm
  • Many reference pages to web connections are included throughout the book
  • Summary

    The importance of discrete mathematics has increased dramatically within the last few years but until now, it has been difficult-if not impossible-to find a single reference book that effectively covers the subject. To fill that void, The Handbook of Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics presents a comprehensive collection of ready reference material for all of the important areas of discrete mathematics, including those essential to its applications in computer science and engineering. Its topics include:
  • Logic and foundations
  • Counting
  • Number theory
  • Abstract and linear algebra
  • Probability
  • Graph theory
  • Networks and optimization
  • Cryptography and coding
  • Combinatorial designs
    The author presents the material in a simple, uniform way, and emphasizes what is useful and practical. For easy reference, he incorporates into the text:
  • Many glossaries of important terms
  • Lists of important theorems and formulas
  • Numerous examples that illustrate terms and concepts
  • Helpful descriptions of algorithms
  • Summary tables
  • Citations of Web pages that supplement the text
    If you have ever had to find information from discrete mathematics in your work-or just out of curiosity-you probably had to search through a variety of books to find it. Never again. The Handbook of Discrete Mathematics is now available and has virtually everything you need-everything important to both theory and practice.
