Selected Lecture Notes and Other Reading
The following sets of notes may provide useful support for your studies.
Some useful textbooks
(Beginning) Finite Mathematics (Schaum Outline Series), Seymour Lipschutz.
(Sadly the old version of this book is out of print, and the new version is
not due to be ready until April 2004! In the mean time we will have to go
back to recommending two (fortunately both very inexpensive) books - see below.)
Discrete Mathematics (Schaum Outline Series), Seymour Lipschutz.
(Covers Set Theory, Matrices, Recurrence Relations)
Mathematical Methods for Science Students (Longman), G Stephenson.
(Covers Complex Numbers, Matrices, Series, Difference Equations)
