5.0 von 5 Sternen Useful and well-written
This is one of those books you keep forever, purely for its utility: it's packed with formulas, techniques, examples. But more than that, the authors lead you through the techniques and explain the concepts behind them, with the goal of equipping you with the mental tools to attack any mathematical problem you encounter. And to top it off, it's well-written, and the...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Horribly mutilated reprint of a bad scan!! Buy the "real" edition instead!!!
Don't buy this printing! Go get the "real" one even though it's twice as expensive.

The money saved isn't worth it, because the fonts are so terrible that it's difficult to read, and there's not a single paragraph in the whole book which is properly typeset. It looks like someone scanned the original book and ran it through an image-to-text processor, with...

This is one of those books you keep forever, purely for its utility: it's packed with formulas, techniques, examples. But more than that, the authors lead you through the techniques and explain the concepts behind them, with the goal of equipping you with the mental tools to attack any mathematical problem you encounter. And to top it off, it's well-written, and the "margin notes" provide some comic relief. The material is very dense, and it's not a book I'd recommend for casual reading: this is stuff you only work through if you're going to need it. But if you *are* going to need it, this book will make it a lot more pleasant.

Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Don't buy this printing! Go get the "real" one even though it's twice as expensive.

The money saved isn't worth it, because the fonts are so terrible that it's difficult to read, and there's not a single paragraph in the whole book which is properly typeset. It looks like someone scanned the original book and ran it through an image-to-text processor, with very bad results. And not only that, the pages STINK like gasoline.

Again: this isn't a review of the real book, just a review of this rip-off reproduction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A book for pure mathematics , not calculus for engineers !, 30. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Concrete Mathematics: Foundation for Computer Science (Gebundene Ausgabe)
hmm, well I myself am an engineer but also have an avid interest in maths..of course the maths average engineer uses is calculus , linear algebra et al. not pure maths..so a common engineer might be dissatisfied with this book. Neverhteless that shouldn't dissuade the maths enthusiast because this is one of the good books written on discrete maths essential for comp sci student and/or a maths major to get a sound grasp of the basics. I hope everyone benefits from this effort to popularise ancient pure maths in the world of abstract maths !

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Incredible Book, 15. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Concrete Mathematics: Foundation for Computer Science (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book is a gem. It provides a further level of understanding not necessarily accessible to those taught the topics of the book in a standard format. For example, one can learn techniques such as induction and perform them a formal near mechanical fashion WITHOUT understanding the WHY of the behavior of relationships being proven. This book gives you that further level of WHY.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good but w/o sufficient detail in one area, 16. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Concrete Mathematics: Foundation for Computer Science (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book is an excellent introduction to the mathematics of algorithms, and besides featuring an engaging, chatty style, is for the most part accessible to people who do not have a tremendous amount of mathematical preparation. Some calculus is helpful, but the authors develop most of their proofs from first principles, so if you took "Calculus for Liberal Arts Majors" while in college you should still be able to learn a great deal from this book if you are interested.
The only problem is that in discussing the "Repertoire Method" of solving recurrences, they never really give a top-down presentation, and we're expected to figure it out by an example. This is unfortunate because later parts of the book build on this.
ANYONE OUT THERE WHO'S SEEN THIS AND IS WILLING & ABLE TO HELP PLEASE CONTACT ME.
However, all exercises are solved, most in reasonable detail, which makes the book particularly useful for those who for professional or other reasons develop an interest in mathematics later in life.

Wonderful for so many things. The way it tends to Generating funcions, asymptotics, and so on and so on. It's SO good.

1.0 von 5 Sternen The title of this book is greatly misleading., 25. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Concrete Mathematics: Foundation for Computer Science (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is not a book on CONCRETE mathematics. If it were a book on concrete mathematics, then the authors would show how the techniques described in the book arise from having to solve real-world, CONCRETE problems that arise in science or engineering. I did not find a single example of a real-world problem in the entire book. As an engineer I have zero interest in solving abstract mathematical problems such as the Tower of Hanoi problem. Show me instead a real-world problem which I can use the recurrance relation technique to solve and I will be happy to learn the technique. If a student wants to make use of this book, he or she has two choices:
A) learn the techniques in the book and take it on faith that they will someday prove useful (a great approach for those who are strong believers in the spiritual world, but perhaps not very suitable for the average engineer interested in solving real-world problems)
B) Research every technique described in the book to find examples how it is used to solve real-world problems (an approach that will be extremely time consuming)
I don't think the average engineer, scientist, or programmer will find either of those approaches very palatable. Human beings learn best from specific to general: if you want to teach me a mathematical technique first show me how I can use it to solve a specific problem, then second show me how I can generalize that technique to solving other problems. The problem chosen should not be expressed in purely mathematical terms, but rather should be an example taken from chemistry, or physics, or computer programming, or biology, or some similar problem domain, and it should be possible to relate the results achieved with the technique back to that domain (both as an aid to understanding and to allow a check on the results). Mathematics, after all, is a tool we use to explain and describe the world we live in, and hence should be explained in terms of that world. If this approach is followed when teaching a mathematical technique, then students will learn faster, have a more thorough understanding of the technique, will be better able to remember it, and will be better able to apply it (even to problem domains different then the one chosen for the example). Unfortunately, the authors of this text clearly do not understand this basic aspect of human learning.
