ab: This is designed as a textbook for undergraduate engineering students of
computer science and postgraduate students of computer applications.
The scope of the book becomes clear from the keywords, see above. The
book seeks to provide a thorough understanding of the subject and
present its practical applications to computer science. Algorithms and
programmes have been used wherever required to illustrate the
applications. Chapter end exercises to help students apply the
mathematical tools to computer-related concepts. (From the
publisherâ€™s description) Some of the concepts introduced (like random
variable) might be formulated more precisely, at least from a
mathematical point of view. Some abbreviations from the index cannot be
found on the pages indicated, some concepts are missing in the index
totally. There is a large number of examples, which may be very
helpful. Every chapter starts with a block of so-called learning
objectives.
