A function of contemporary complex computing is the useful method of programming. during this e-book, the authors current an advent to the math which underline practical programming, emphasizing the certainty of definition and specification--a prerequisite of excellent programming and challenge fixing with a working laptop or computer. The e-book is self-contained, requiring a low point of mathematical sophistication and will be used as an advent to the maths of programming.

Provides an advent to the sensible method of programming**Emphasizes the matter to be solved, now not the programming language**Takes the view that each one desktop courses are a definition of a function**Includes workouts for every chapter**Can be used as a pre-programming language creation to the math of computing.
