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 curriculum for 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
