New!

Active Applied Discrete Structures

This is external to the main text. It consists of a collection of reading assignments designed for use in a “flipped” class format. The exercises are a mix of problems from the text, new problems, and problems “borrowed” (with attribution) from other sources. Draft version.

Wiki Site

The wiki site includes old Mathematica notebooks and other information.

Last fall, my coauthor, Al Doerr, passed away. The previous year, he had retired after 50 years on the faculty at UMass Lowell. In his honor, the Mathematical Sciences Department has established an endowed scholarship fund in his name. If you or your students want to thank us for the book, you could donate even a few dollars to the Prof. Alan Doerr Scholarship Fund at http://www.uml.edu/give. All proceeds go to a scholarship endowment for our math majors.

Spring 2020 update: The first Doerr Scholarship of a bit over $1,000 was awarded to a deserving Math/Physics double major!
