This book introduces the mathematics that supports advanced computer
programming and the analysis of algorithms. The primary aim of its
well-known authors is to provide a solid and relevant base of
mathematical skills - the skills needed to solve complex problems, to
evaluate horrendous sums, and to discover subtle patterns in data. It is
an indispensable text and reference not only for computer scientists -
the authors themselves rely heavily on it! - but for serious users of
mathematics in virtually every discipline. Concrete Mathematics is a
blending of CONtinuous and disCRETE mathematics. "More concretely," the
authors explain, "it is the controlled manipulation of mathematical
formulas, using a collection of techniques for solving problems." The
subject matter is primarily an expansion of the Mathematical
Preliminaries section in Knuth's classic Art of Computer Programming,
but the style of presentation is more leisurely, and individual topics
are covered more deeply. Several new topics have been added, and the
most significant ideas have been traced to their historical roots.
