The book is flexible so that it can be tailored to any teaching approach while guiding students quickly through 31 short chapters, discussing one major topic per chapter.

Proven in the classroom, Essential Discrete Mathematics for Computer Scientists is fully illustrated in color and provides a concise summary and set of exercises at the end of each chapter—more than 300 exercises in all. It teaches students not just the "content" of discrete mathematics but how to think rigorously about computational problems. A welcome alternative to costly, encyclopedic volumes on the subject, this accessible book is versatile enough to adapt to any instructor's curriculum and teaching style. Four blocks of chapters—on logic, automata and formal languages, discrete probability, and cryptography—can be truncated or even skipped without affecting the flow of the other chapters.

Essential Discrete Mathematics for Computer Scientists is the ideal introductory textbook for standard undergraduate courses, but is also suitable for high schools, distance education for adult learners, and self-study.
