ab: As promised by its title, the book surveys several mathematical topics
relevant to computer science such as predicate logic, number theory,
coding theory, statistics, calculus, and graph theory. Some less
mathematical topics are also treated, for example software engineering,
formal methods, and computability. The book’s scope is rather broad
than deep, and its level is suitable for first year students of
computer science. By demonstrating the richness of the computing field,
the book can hopefully help attracting a more diverse next generation
of computer science students.
