About the Book

Meant to serve as an introduction to discrete mathematical structures, this book covers the topics taught in a one-semester course at the undergraduate level. Students of BE computer science, information science and other engineering branches as well as students of MCA programme will find the book useful. The few chapters included on combinatorics will bring home the practical utility of the various concepts introduced in the book and enable appreciation of the myriad applications that apparently simple concepts such as relations, functions and the pigeon-hole principle have.

V. Ramaswamy obtained his PhD in 1982 from Madras University. Since then he has been teaching: St. Xaviers College, Palayamkottai (1982–1983), the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani (1983–1985) and the Birla Institute of Technology, Ranchi (1985–1989). In 1989 he joined the Bapuji Institute of Engineering and Technology, Davangere as an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, where he is currently a professor and the head of the Department of Information Science and Engineering. Dr. Ramaswamy has also served in Terengannu Advanced Technical Institute, Malaysia as Professor and Head, Department of Information Technology (1989-2000) and as Professor, School of Information Sciences and Engineering, University college of Technology and Management (KUTPM), Malaysia (2005–2006).
