Please try again later. Great price and quick delivery! I bought this book as a supplement to a summer course in Discrete Math, and since this was my first ever exposure to mathematical proof and dialog, I first thought this book mostly alien, with occaisional sections of brevity; it did help me fill in some gaps left behind in Rosen’s book, especially on some basic proofs dealing with integers and with combinatorial reasoning–something this book is REALLY good at I’m in my first course of Combinatorics with a teacher that assumes we know alot more calculus than we do.

We use Tucker’s Applied combinatorics 5th, and I was cruising along just fine until we hit Generating Functions.

Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics, 5th Edition

Rosen’s book didn’t cover it well; there’s a great page of known identities, but not an intro-level versionneither did Epp, so I dusted this tome off my shelf and cracked it open I’ve also found that as my ‘mathematical maturity’ has grown in the last year, so has the comprehensibility of this text.


I also own Epp and Rosen’s discrete math texts, and have to say that for me ultimately I needed all three as a beginner; plus a few extra books from the library for special topics. But what I learned stayed with me and all three have their positives and negatives, but if I were to choose only one to stay on my shelf, THIS would be the one. I would rent this book again if necessary. It will do wonders for people taking Discrete Structures — the mathematics class.

Good book, lots of examples. Nothing really changes between editions, the professor said we could get pretty much any version we wanted and this one was affordable so got it. Out of the three main discrete math texts, Rosen, Epp, and this one–Grimaldi–this text unites the best parts of both; Epp has some really great explanations, but suffers from not having enough solutions and lacks depth.

Rosen’s book manages to write hundreds of words per concept while completely confusing new students in dense mathematical jargon.

I used this book as a supplement to my discrete math class in summer and as a supplement for a combinatorics class this past fall. My mathematical ‘maturity’ when approaching discrete math was business calculus. Yeah, I know that sucks, and all you mathematicians and engineers can laugh your hind off about it. So basically, I was behind the class in both this and in the combinatorics class this fall. Grimaldi is interested in teaching you to solve problems.

I thought Chen’s book was king here, but this book, when working through gobs of problems, helps you learn them inside and out. It has two charts detailing what happens in a non-homegeneous recurrence relation, one that states general solutions, another that gives you a relation, its homogeneous counterpart, and changes the NH part and shows you how the general form changes. Brilliant, and blows Tucker’s “Applied Combinatorics” out of the water in clarity when solving recurrence relations.


Best book in its class. Got an A- and a B in those classes, for the results-minded. This is where this book became the holy grail. Gives a good overview of abstract mathematics in a very well presented fashion. Gives an introduction and some practice applying first order logic, set theory, algebras, solutions to recurrence equations, and more. It really has nothing to do with computer science and makes no attempt to show anything about it, as any language is just a language.
