James L. Hein

Includes access to student companion website

Following the recent updates to the 2013 ACM/IEEE Computer Science curricula, Discrete Structures, Logic, and Computability, Fourth Edition, has been designed for the discrete math course that covers one- to two- semesters.  Dr. Hein presents material in a spiral method of learning, introducing basic information about a topic, allowing the students to work on the problem and revisit the topic, as new information and skills are established.  Written for prospective computer scientist, computer engineers, or applied mathematicians, who want to learn about the ideas that inspire computer science, this edition contains an extensive coverage of logic, setting it apart from similar books available in the field of Computer Science.
