In addition, there are numerous examples, figures and exercises spread throughout the book.

The authors discuss a number of selected results and methods of discrete mathematics, mostly from the areas of combinatorics and graph theory, with a little number theory, probability, and combinatorial geometry. Vesztergombi Limited preview – Elementary and Beyond L. There are very simple, natural questions that we cannot answer; and there are other simple, natural questions to which an answer has been found only in lovas last few years!

Primality testing is not new either, but it is not standard fare, and lends a nice flavor here.

Vesztergombi Limited preview – User Review – Flag as inappropriate The book is awesome and I was impressed by the lucid treatment by the mathematicd. I’m a sucker for projective planes, as well as cryptography, and was delighted with this selection as a fitting conclusion to the book.

I found myself pleased with how the authors make a point of including developments and applications in their text, in coding theory in particular. Surely there are some readers who will find this sort of bait and switch annoying, but I am not one of them.

### Laszlo Lovász biography

I quite enjoyed carrying this small volume around, reading a section or two at a time. Binomial Laazlo and Pascals Triangle. In Chapter Six, the theme is prime numbers. My library Help Advanced Book Search. To conclude, in Discrete Mathematics Lovasz, Pelikan and Vesztergombi have succeeded in providing us with a book that is sure to please amthematics readers.

This result is not mwthematics the authors date it to the late s but it was new to me. Wherever possible, the authors use proofs and problem solving to help students understand the solutions to problems. This is the longest chapter in the text, at about thirty pages. My library Help Advanced Book Search. The first paragraph of the chapter entitled Integers, Divisors, and Laszpo presents a good example of this philosophy in action:.

Discrete mathematics is quickly becoming one of the most important areas of mathematical research, with applications to cryptography, linear programming, coding theory and the theory mthematics computing.

For example, there is no mention of boolean logic or automata. For example, there is a discussion of pseudoprimes and of the Miller-Rabin, algorithm which, upon iteration, has an excellent probability of correctly identifying a prime. Then there is a foray into planar geometry leading to a discussion of the Four Color Theorem.

Graphs and trees, and matching and optimization problems are the themes of the next few chapters. The writing is generally clear and engaging. Coloring Maps and Graphs. Account Options Sign in. The second chapter leads to the pigeonhole principle, but also discusses estimating the size of numbers, a theme that reappears from time to time throughout the book.

## László Lovász

Its roots go back about years, to the very beginning of Greek mathematics. Account Options Sign in. In fact, I felt it added to the introductory nature of the text.

This area of mathematics is called number theory, and it is a truly venerable field: This book is aimed at undergraduate mathematics and computer science students interested in developing a The binomial theorem is the main tool of the next chapter, leading quite nicely to identities arising from Pascal’s triangle and estimates for sums and quotients of binomial coefficients.

I was also pleased that in several places the authors would state a best lofasz result, and then proceed to state and prove an easier result — one that was within the scope of the book. It is indeed elementary enough to use as a text in class although be warned: Selected pages Title Page. But they do not shy away from first convincing the reader of the likelihood of a result having usually led the reader to that point skillfully and then providing a discretee.

Elementary and Beyond L.

But a reader interested in discrete mathematics mostly for the sake of computer matyematics will likely be disappointed, frustrated, or both.

Wherever possible, the authors use proofs and problem solving to help students understand the solutions to problems. Likewise, algorithms are discussed strictly from a mathematical viewpoint — disceete in the Euclidean Algorithm, as are recurrence relations.
