Mathematical Structures for Computer Science : A Modern Treatment of Discrete Mathematics. by Judith L. Gersting. Professor Gersting covers all of the basic mathematical structures necessary for through understading of Computer Science. The material is presented on a low level initailly to facilitate understanding. The relationship between Math and Computer Science is one in which Professor Judith Gersting presents well without explicitly stating it. This book is well organized and detailed in every way. The problems presented are appropriate and timely.

Computing Curricula 2001 (CC2001), a joint undertaking of the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers/Computer Society (IEEE/CS) and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), identifies the essential material for an undergraduate degree in computer science.This Sixth Edition of Mathematical Structures for Computer Science covers all the topics in the CC2001 suggested curriculumfor a one-semester intensive discrete structures course, and virtually everything suggested for a two-semester version of a discrete structures course. Gersting's text binds together what otherwise appears to be a collection of disjointed topics by emphasizing the following themes: • Importance of logical thinking• Power of mathematical notation• Usefulness of abstractions

There are a lot of topics discussed in this book in relation to logic, probability, discrete math, and graphs. I found several of the examples lacking in explanation. To be more specific, I found the discrete math explanation insufficient, where the book by Lathi for Systems and Signals did a much better job explaining solutions to difference equations. For other topics, I often had to refer to Wikipedia for further explanations. Otherwise, the book does cover a lot of material and offers problems and examples for the reader to go over, with solutions in the back of the book for all exercises and specific problems. Just be prepared to not have every example spelled out completely.

I used this book for an undergraduate course in Discrete Mathematics. I'd say that the book tended to confuse more than clarify, at least in its initial explanation of things. Working through the example problems often helped correct that, though. My professor thought the author was pretty ambitious to be aimed at undergrads and ended up skipping most of the material on Turing machines; he also skipped the material on Probability because our computer science students must take a Prob & Stats course; otherwise, he stuck very closely to the book.

I felt the book was structured well in that new chapters often built upon previous ones. The chapters on Formal Logic and Proof Techniques were long and detailed, but have since helped with my programming assignments. The chapters on Sets, Relations, Graphs, Trees, and Algorithms were the most valuable since they directly relate to my courses in Databases and Analysis of Algorithms.

The book helped but I feel that my professor is what really made it work for me. The book isn't bad, but it's not great either; if anything, it's "alright."

We are using this book for the second in a series of Discrete Structures courses at my school. This book is significantly better than the one we used (Discrete Structures, Logic, And Computability, J. Hein) the first term, which is also used by the second section of the course. I'm very glad I didn't register for it.

This book is packed with information, but most importantly for someone learning the subject matter it is very readable and easy to understand without dumbing down the content.

I can appreciate the explanations in proper mathematical jargon. It is to help you to learn to understand the jargon. Like reading Shakespeare

HOWEVER

The examples in this book are much easier than the problems in the section problems. There are some concepts found in the section problem sets are not actually covered in the section. I had to look on the web for an explanation that made sense.

Note the the author: Some of us taking Discrete Math are often not math whizzes. Please give a more layman's explanation in addition to the proper mathematical description.

If you are looking for a book to learn Discrete Math on you own this book is NOT for you.

This text is a fine work. The progression through material is logical, explained, and paced. I had the slight misfortune of this class being a 5-week summer course, but review of text more fully after the end of the semester proved how well laid out the text . There are good explanations of basic concepts and methods, general proofs, specific examples, and practical discussion of application. I would recommend this book to those interesed in logic, proofs, math, and computer applications.

This is a hard topic to learn. This book doesn't necessarily make it a ton easier, but was definitely a help in my Discrete Structures course. It was nice to have, but I definitely didn't need it by any means. The book gives examples and LOTS of practice problems, but doesn't always have good solutions to the problems it goes over.
