Skiena

With examples of all functions in action plus tutorial text on the mathematics this book is the definitive guide to Experimenting with Combinatorica a widely used software package for teaching and research in discrete mathematics Three interesting classes of exercises are provided theorem proof programming exercises and experimental explorations ensuring great flexibility in teaching and learning the material The Combinatorica user community ranges from students to engineers researchers in mathematics computer science physics economics and the humanities Recipient of the EDUCOM Higher Education Software Award Combinatorica is included with every copy of the popular computer algebra system Mathematica, A Concise Introduction to Languages Machines and Logic provides an accessible introduction to three key topics within computer science formal languages abstract machines and formal logic Written in an easy to read informal style this textbook assumes only a basic knowledge of programming on the part of the reader br br The approach is deliberately non mathematical and features Clear explanations of formal notation and jargon Extensive use of examples to illustrate algorithms and proofs Pictorial representations of key concepts Chapter opening overviews providing an introduction and guidance to each topic End of chapter exercises and solutions Offers an intuitive approach to the topics br br This reader friendly textbook has been written with undergraduates in mind and will be suitable for use on course covering formal languages formal logic computability and automata theory It will also make an excellent supplementary text for courses on algorithm complexity and compilers, div This book concentrates on two distinct areas in discrete mathematics The first section deals with combinatorics loosely defined as the study of counting We provide functions for generating combinatorial objects such as permutations partitions and Young tableaux as well as for studying various aspects of these structures The second section considers graph theory which can be defined equally loosely as the study of binary relations We consider a wide variety of graphs provide functions to create them and functions to show what special properties they have Although graphs are combinatorial structures understanding them requires pictures or embeddings Thus we provide functions to create a variety of graph embeddings so the same structure can be viewed in several different ways Algorithmic graph theory is an important interface between mathematics and computer science and so we study a variety of polynominal and exponential time problems div, No description available
