Revised for extra clarity, the distinguishing characteristic of Ross and Wright is a sound mathematical treatment that increases smoothly in sophistication. The text presents utility-grade discrete math tools so students can understand them, use them, and move on to more advanced mathematical topics. - NEW - Over 270 supplementary exercises - All with answers. - Provides students with questions typical of the ones they should be able to answer after completing the chapters. - NEW - Full chapter on discrete probability. - Uses binomial random variables to gently motivate the existence and usefulness of the Gaussian distribution. - NEW - Chapter on algebraic structures - Applies permutation groups to combinatorial problems, and discusses the Chinese Remainder Theorem with applications to fast arithmetic and polynomial interpolation. - Provides a nice new option for many instructors. - NEW - Matrix multiplication is now deferred until Chapter 11 - Where it is first needed. - Provides a better organized and clearer text. - NEW - Boolean algebra isomorphism coverage moved - Now at the end of the Boolean Algebra chapter. - Helps students more easily understand this concept. - Comprehensi
