The Second Edition of David Hunter's Essentials of Discrete Mathematics is the ideal text for a one-term discrete mathematics course to serve computer science majors, as well as students from a wide range of other disciplines. The material is organized around five types of mathematical thinking: logical, relational, recursive, quantitative, and analytical. This presentation results in a coherent outline that steadily builds upon mathematical sophistication. Graphs are introduced early and are referred to throughout the text, providing a richer context for examples and applications. Students will encounter algorithms near the end of the text, after they have acquired enough skills and experience to analyze them properly. The final chapter contains in-depth case studies from a variety of fields, including biology, sociology, linquistics, economics, and music.
