This fourth edition continues to improve on the features that have made it the market leader. The text offers a flexible organization, enabling instructors to adapt the book to their particular courses: discrete mathematics, graph theory, modern algebra, and/or combinatorics. More elementary problems were added, creating a greater variety of level in problem sets, which allows students to perfect skills as they practice. This new edition continues to feature numerous computer science applications--making this the ideal text for preparing students for advanced study.

*FEATURES:*

- This text has an enhanced mathematical approach, with carefully thought out examples, including many examples with computer sciences applications.
- Historical reviews and biographies bring a human element to their assignments.
- Chapter summaries allow students to review what they have learned.
