Computing is an exact science and the systematic study of any aspect necessarily involves the use of mathematical models. Moreover, the rate at which the subject is evolving demands a facility for developing new mathematical systems to keep pace with new computing systems and this requires an appreciation of how mathematics works. An understanding of the underlying mathematical structure facilitates the construction of suitable computer programs to perform computations. Assuming no specific knowledge of mathematics, the authors describe all the basic concepts required and progress from sets (rather than numbers) through a variety of algebraic structures that permit the precise description, specification and subsequent analysis of many problems in computing. The material included provides the essential mathematical foundations for core topics of computer science and extends into the areas of language theory, abstract machine theory and computer geometry. Computer Mathematics will be of interest to undergraduate students of computer science and mathematics, post-graduate computing 'conversion' course students and computer professionals who need an introduction to the mathematics that underpins computer science theory.
