Lists, Decisions and Graphs - With an Introduction to Probability (Edward A. Bender, et al)

Counting and Listing (Unit CL), Functions (Unit Fn), Decision Trees and Recursion (Unit DT), and Basic Concepts in Graph Theory are the four foundational areas of discrete mathematics covered in this book (Unit GT).

A list of Multiple Choice Questions for Review is provided at the conclusion of each unit. As your research advances, you should constantly refer back to these questions (with the accompanying answers) as they capture crucial concepts. You will discover a series of activities at the conclusion of each segment of a unit. Try to solve them, then compare your solutions to those listed at the book's end.

There are numerous disciplines where discrete mathematics concepts are employed (e.g., computer programming, engineering, biology, economics, operations research, sociology). Every discipline has its own unique nomenclature. In this book, we unify these ideas using the potent and pervasive language of mathematics to provide professionals access to a far wider body of knowledge.
