about

A second edition of a book is a success and an obligation at the same time. We are satis ed that a number of university courses have been orga> nized on the basis of the rst volume of Comprehensive Mathematics for Computer Scientists. The instructors recognized that the self>contained presentation of a broad specturm of mathematical core topics is a rm point of departure for a sustainable formal education in computer sci> ence. We feel obliged to meet the valuable feedback of the responsible in> structors of such courses, in particular of Joel Young (Computer Science Department, Brown University) who has provided us with numerous re> marks on misprints, errors, or obscurities. We would like to express our gratitude for these collaborative contributions. We have reread the entire text and not only eliminated identi ed errors, but also given some addi> tional examples and explications to statements and proofs which were exposed in a too shorthand style. A second edition of the second volume will be published as soon as the errata, the suggestions for improvements, and the publisher's strategy are in harmony.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The solution proposed by the authors of this book consists essentially of a course on the foundations of mathematics and computer science. . As one can see . the book covers a lot of material. . One of the good things about the book is that it covers a lot of ground in an extremely systematic way. . the book is written with conviction, and one can see that the authors made a great effort to make it interesting to their readers." (S. C. Coutinho, The Mathematical Gazette, Vol. 90 (517), 2006)"This book meets the needs of a sound mathematical education of computer scientists improving formal competence and flexibility. It very well sets forth (and proves) the essential core theory and theorist or executive on all levels of Computer Science and IT industry will appreciate. . Having passed through all . the student will have a broad and sufficiently deep mathematical knowledge." (H. Mitsch, Monatshefte für Mathematik, Vol. 145 (2), 2005)From the reviews of the second edition:"As the title of this book suggests, it covers a broad range of topics in mathematics; it is intended for use as an introductory textbook for computer science undergraduates. . It may be suitable for people who are already familiar with the subject and need a reference to quickly check definitions and theorems." (I-Lun Tseng, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (4), April, 2008)
