The style of the book also makes it suitable for self-study and distance learning. Features of the book Mathematical processes are described in everyday language mathematical ideas are usually developed by example rather than formal proof, thereby encouraging students' learning. Key points highlight important results that need to be referred to easily or remembered. Worked examples are included throughout the book to reinforce learning. Self-assessment questions are provided at the END of most sections to test understanding of important parts of the section. Answers are given at the back of the book. Exercises provide a key opportunity to develop competence and understanding through practice. Answers are given at the back of the book. Test and assignment exercises (with answers provided in a separate Lecturers' Manual on the website) allow lecturers and tutors to set regular assignments or tests throughout the course. New to this EDITION Six new chapters: Chapter 4 Sets, Chapter 8 Number Bases, Chapter 9 Elementary Logic, Chapter 31 Integration by Parts, Chapter 36 Correlation and Chapter 37 Regression. Extra END-of-chapter questions for students (with answers) on the website at www.pearsoned.co.uk/croft .

"There are many textbooks available for a so-called transition course from calculus to abstract mathematics. I have taught this course several times and always find it problematic. The Foundations of Mathematics (Stewart and Tall) is a horse of a different color. The writing is excellent and there is actually some useful mathematics. I definitely like this book."--The Bulletin of Mathematics Books

Foundation Mathematics for Computer Science

A Visual Approach

John Vince describes a range of mathematical topics to provide a foundation for an undergraduate course in computer science, starting with a review of number systems and their relevance to digital computers, and finishing with differential and integral calculus. Readers will find that the author's visual approach will greatly improve their understanding as to why certain mathematical structures exist, together with how they are used in real-world applications. Each chapter includes full-colour illustrations to clarify the mathematical descriptions, and in some cases, equations are also coloured to reveal vital algebraic patterns. The numerous worked examples will consolidate comprehension of abstract mathematical concepts. Foundation Mathematics for Computer Science covers number systems, algebra, logic, trigonometry, coordinate systems, determinants, vectors, matrices, geometric matrix transforms, differential and integral calculus, and reveals the names of the mathematicians behind such inventions. During this journey, John Vince touches upon more esoteric topics such as quaternions, octonions, Grassmann algebra, Barycentric coordinates, transfinite sets and prime numbers. Whether you intend to pursue a career in programming, scientific visualisation, systems design, or real-time computing, you should find the author’s literary style refreshingly lucid and engaging, and prepare you for more advanced texts.
