  • About the Author

These active and well-known authors have come together to create a fresh, innovative, and timely approach to Discrete Math.  One innovation uses several major threads to help weave core topics into a cohesive whole.  Throughout the book the application of mathematical reasoning is emphasized to solve problems while the authors guide the student in thinking about, reading, and writing proofs in a wide variety of contexts.  Another important content thread, as the sub-title implies, is the focus on mathematical puzzles, games and magic tricks to engage students.
