This textbook, now in its fourth edition, continues to provide an accessible introduction to discrete
mathematics and graph theory.
The introductory material on Mathematical Logic is followed by extensive coverage of combinatorics,
recurrence relation, binary relations, coding theory, distributive lattice, bipartite graphs, trees,
algebra, and Polyas counting principle. A number of selected results and methods of discrete
mathematics are discussed in a logically coherent fashion from the areas of mathematical logic, set
theory, combinatorics, binary relation and function, Boolean lattice, planarity, and group theory. There
is an abundance of examples, illustrations and exercises spread throughout the book. A good number
of problems in the exercises help students test their knowledge.
The text is intended for the undergraduate students of Computer Science and Engineering as well as
to the students of Mathematics and those pursuing courses in the areas of Computer Applications
and Information Technology.
New to the Fourth Edition

Introduces new section on Arithmetic Function in Chapter 9.

Elaborates enumeration of spanning trees of wheel graph, fan graph and ladder graph.
Redistributes most of the problems given in exercises section-wise.
Provides many additional definitions, theorems, examples and exercises.
Gives elaborate hints for solving exercise problems.
