- Mathematics of Discrete Structures for Computer Science by Gordon J. PaceCall Number: QA 76.9 .M35 P33ISBN: 9783642298394Publication Date: 2012-09-09Mathematics plays a key role in computer science, some researchers would consider computers as nothing but the physical embodiment of mathematical systems. And whether you are designing a digital circuit, a computer program or a new programming language, you need mathematics to be able to reason about the design -- its correctness, robustness and dependability. This book covers the foundational mathematics necessary for courses in computer science. The common approach to presenting mathematical concepts and operators is to define them in terms of properties they satisfy, and then based on these definitions develop ways of computing the result of applying the operators and prove them correct. This book is mainly written for computer science students, so here the author takes a different approach: he starts by defining ways of calculating the results of applying the operators and then proves that they satisfy various properties.nbsp;After justifying his underlying approach the author offers detailed chapters covering propositional logic, predicate calculus, sets, relations, discrete structures, structured types, numbers, and reasoning about programs. The book contains chapter and section summaries, detailed proofs and many end-of-section exercises --nbsp;key to the learning process. The book is suitable for undergraduate and graduate students, and although thenbsp;treatment focuses on areas with frequent applications in computer science, the book is also suitable for students ofnbsp;mathematics and engineering.
- Mathematics for Electricity and Electronics by Newman; Walter L. BartkiwCall Number: TK 146 .N64ISBN: 9780028012629Publication Date: 1995-01-25This workbook was written as a math refresher to help your students with the required math in the dc/ac course. The material is presented in a concise, relevant form beginning with the fundamentals of applied mathematics, algebra, trigonometry, and logarithms. As each topic is introduced, examples are given to help students master the manipulative skills and provide them with a better understanding of the mathematical concepts. Hundreds of drill problems are presented sing a unique three column format so students can see the math problem worked out traditionally and how the same problem is solved using a calculator.
- Math with Bad Drawings by Ben OrlinCall Number: QA 93 .O75 2018ISBN: 9780316509039Publication Date: 2018-09-18A hilarious reeducation in mathematics-full of joy, jokes, and stick figures-that sheds light on the countless practical and wonderful ways that math structures and shapes our world. In Math With Bad Drawings, Ben Orlin reveals to us what math actually is; its myriad uses, its strange symbols, and the wild leaps of logic and faith that define the usually impenetrable work of the mathematician. Truth and knowledge come in multiple forms: colorful drawings, encouraging jokes, and the stories and insights of an empathetic teacher who believes that math should belong to everyone. Orlin shows us how to think like a mathematician by teaching us a brand-new game of tic-tac-toe, how to understand an economic crises by rolling a pair of dice, and the mathematical headache that ensues when attempting to build a spherical Death Star. Every discussion in the book is illustrated with Orlin's trademark "bad drawings," which convey his message and insights with perfect pitch and clarity. With 24 chapters covering topics from the electoral college to human genetics to the reasons not to trust statistics, Math with Bad Drawings is a life-changing book for the math-estranged and math-enamored alike.
- College Mathematics for Business, Economics, Life Sciences and Social Sciences by Raymond A. Barnett; Michael R. Ziegler; Karl E. ByleenCall Number: Reserve deskISBN: 9780321614001Publication Date: 2010-02-18This accessible text is designed to help readers help themselves to excel. The content is organized into three parts: (1) A Library of Elementary Functions (Chapters 1-2), (2) Finite Mathematics (Chapters 3-9), and (3) Calculus (Chapters 10-15). The book's overall approach, refined by the authors' experience with large sections of college freshmen, addresses the challenges of learning when readers' prerequisite knowledge varies greatly. Reader-friendly features such as Matched Problems, Explore & Discuss questions, and Conceptual Insights, together with the motivating and ample applications, make this text a popular choice for today's students and instructors.
