The material is basic, as one expects from a book in the Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics series, but there is some material “beyond” the elementary.

This book is aimed at undergraduate mathematics and computer science students interested in developing a feeling for what mathematics is all about, where mathematics can be helpful, and what kinds of questions mathematicians work on.

## László Lovász

The writing is generally clear and engaging. Wherever possible, the authors use proofs and problem solving to help students understand the solutions to problems.

The authors discuss a number of selected results and methods of discrete mathematics, mostly from the areas of combinatorics and graph theory, with a little number theory, probability, and combinatorial geometry. Primality testing is not new either, but it is not standard fare, and lends a nice flavor here. When this book arrived on my desk, it got lazlo rather quickly, and after falling onto the back burner, it stayed there for quite some time. This book does a wonderful job of communicating mathematics as a vibrant field.

Laszl Coefficients and Pascals Triangle.

A Glimpse of Complexity and Cryptography. Her area of specialty is algebraic topology. In many places the authors are willing to remark amthematics the process of doing mathematics, on questions that appear “natural” or “surprising” and of course “elegant”. The authors discuss a number of selected results and methods of discrete mathematics, mostly from the areas of combinatorics and graph theory, with a little number theory, probability, and combinatorial geometry.

Surely there are some readers who will find this sort of bait and switch annoying, but I am not one of them. The prerequisite to read and understand this book is the knowledge of high school mathematics, but the reader must also refer other papers and books to get the in depth knowledge for some of the proofs and concept. This area of mathematics is called number theory, and it is a truly venerable field: Other editions – View all Discrete Mathematics: User Review – Flag as inappropriate The book is awesome and I was impressed by the lucid treatment by mathemstics authors.

Vesztergombi Limited preview – Coloring Maps and Graphs. In addition, there are numerous examples, figures and exercises spread throughout the book. The first paragraph of the chapter entitled Integers, Divisors, and Primes presents a good example of this philosophy in action: My library Help Advanced Book Search.

To conclude, in Discrete Mathematics Lovasz, Pelikan and Vesztergombi have succeeded in providing us with a book that is sure to please many readers.

Elementary and Beyond L. For example, there is a discussion of pseudoprimes and of the Miller-Rabin, algorithm which, upon iteration, has an excellent mafhematics of correctly identifying a prime. References to this book Codierungstheorie: I learned of a few results here.

There are very simple, natural questions that we cannot answer; and there are other simple, natural questions to which an answer has been found only in the last few years!

### Laszlo Lovász biography

Recurrence relations are briefly introduced via the Fibonacci numbers, but attention quickly turns to combinatorial probability and a new chapter. The authors carefully remind us throughout the text that what is convincing does not necessarily constitute a proof. Vesztergombi Limited preview – The binomial theorem is the main tool of the next chapter, leading quite nicely to identities arising from Pascal’s triangle and estimates for sums and quotients of binomial coefficients.

I found myself pleased with how the authors make a point of including developments and applications in their text, in coding theory in particular. In fact, I felt it added to the introductory nature of the text.

Integers Divisors and Primes. I was also pleased that in several places the authors would state a best known dicsrete, and then proceed to state and prove an easier result — one that was within the scope of the book. Then there is a foray into planar geometry leading to a discussion of the Four Color Theorem.

Wherever possible, the authors use proofs and problem solving to help students understand the solutions to problems. I’m a sucker for projective planes, as well as cryptography, and was delighted with this selection as a fitting conclusion to the book. Elementary and Beyond Discrete Mathematics:
