Exploring Discrete Mathematics Using Mathematica
(See related pages)

 This is a guide to help you explore concepts in discrete mathematics using the computer system Mathematica. This book can significantly enhance your understanding of discrete mathematics in several ways: providing you with a plethora of interactive examples, making algorithms concrete and understandable by implementing them on your computer, and freeing you to experiment and conjecture without getting bogged down in repetitive calculation. Exploring Discrete Mathematics with Mathematica is designed to be accessible to those who are complete novices with Mathematica and with computer programming, but it has much to offer even experts.The introduction explains the fundamentals of how to use Mathematica and the basics of computer programming with Mathematica. The chapters follow the structure of Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications and are available both as pdf files and as Mathematica Notebooks (.nb) so that you can interact directly with the examples. Each section in Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications has a corresponding section in this manual that explains the relevant Mathematica functions, leads you through an exploration of a topic in discrete mathematics, explains how to implement algorithms described in the textbook, and sometimes even shows how to create programs to extend Mathematica to explore discrete math even more deeply.
