Description

A diligent, active reader of this outstanding book will have the best foundation at minimum cost for making meaningful contributions to mathematics, science, or engineering. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Through careful explanations and examples, this popular textbook illustrates the power and beauty of basic mathematical concepts in number theory, discrete mathematics, analysis, and abstract algebra.

The book will continue to serve well as a transitional course to rigorous mathematics and as an introduction to the mathematical world … . The material is very well chosen and arranged, and teaching from Liebeck’s book has in many different ways been among my most rewarding teaching experiences during the last decades.I would imagine that this book must be perfect for maths undergraduates in their first year - or even in the summer before starting. Now in an updated and expanded third edition, A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics provides an informed and informative presentation into a representative selection of fundamental ideas in mathematics … . It will just give you a superficial overview of a bunch of theories and theorems that you will encounter sooner or later, in better form, in your college years. It covers not only standard material but also many interesting topics not usually encountered at this level, such as the theory of solving cubic equations, the use of Euler’s formula to study the five Platonic solids, the use of prime numbers to encode and decode secret information, and the theory of how to compare the sizes of two infinite sets.

New to the Fourth EditionTwo new chapters that serve as an introduction to abstract algebra via the theory of groups, covering abstract reasoning as well as many examples and applicationsNew material on inequalities, counting methods, the inclusion-exclusion principle, and Eulers phi function Numerous new exercises, with solutions to the odd-numbered onesThrough careful explanations and examples, this popular textbook illustrates the power and beauty of basic mathematical concepts in number theory, discrete mathematics, analysis, and abstract algebra. Students are taught how to understand and create proofs, but they are also given a glimpse of what it is all for…applied mathematicians also need to know about proofs, counting, inequalities, bounds, and even groups — and this book could help them learn all that. In addition to preparing students to go on in mathematics, it is also a wonderful choice for a student who will not necessarily go on in mathematics but wants a gentle but fascinating introduction into the culture of mathematics.The book will continue to serve well as a transitional course to rigorous mathematics and as an introduction to the mathematical world .
