Discrete Mathematics with Applications
Susanna Epp’s DISCRETE MATHEMATICS WITH APPLICATIONS, FOURTH EDITION provides a clear introduction to discrete mathematics. Renowned for her lucid, accessible prose, Epp explains complex, abstract concepts with clarity and precision. This book presents not only the major themes of discrete mathematics, but also the reasoning that underlies mathematical thought. Students develop the ability to think abstractly as they study the ideas of logic and proof. While learning about such concepts as logic circuits and computer addition, algorithm analysis, recursive thinking, computability, automata, cryptography, and combinatorics, students discover that the ideas of discrete mathematics underlie and are essential to the science and technology of the computer age. Overall, Epp’s emphasis on reasoning provides students with a strong foundation for computer science and upper-level mathematics courses.

Review: Discrete Mathematics with ApplicationsUser Review - Arvydas Sidorenko - Goodreads
This is literally the best beginners book on discrete math you can find. I have looked into dozens of different materials and this one is proved to be the best. Very detailed and intuitive explanations, 2000+ exercises with answers in total. This is THE book on Discrete Mathematics! Read full review
Review: Discrete Mathematics with ApplicationsUser Review - hyacinth - Goodreads
Clear and concise, few textual errors (in the latest edition) for a book of this size. Decent exercises. Would recommend as a relatively breezy introduction to proof-writing and select topics (logic, graph theory, etc.), potentially a good supplement for more rigorous or challenging texts.
