Diskrete Mathematik fuer Einsteiger

Dieses Buch eignet sich hervorragend zur selbstständigen Einarbeitung in die Diskrete Mathematik, aber auch als Begleitlektüre zu einer einführenden Vorlesung. Die Diskrete Mathematik ist ein junges Gebiet der Mathematik, das eine Brücke schlägt zwischen Grundlagenfragen und konkreten Anwendungen. Zu den Gebieten der Diskreten Mathematik gehören Codierungstheorie, Kryptographie, Graphentheorie und Netzwerke.

Also, we are concerned only with factoring over the integers. That is, we search only for polynomial factors that have integer coefficients. Greatest Common Factor The first step in the factorization of any polynomial is to use the distributive property to factor out the greatest common factor (GCF) of the terms of the polynomial. Given two or more exponential expressions with the same prime number base or the same variable base, the GCF is the exponential expression with the smallest exponent.

The following example shows the direction we can take to accomplish our goal. If the product property for exponential expressions is to hold for rational exponents, then for rational numbers p and q, b pb q = b p + q. For example, 91>2 # 91>2 must equal 91>2+1>2 = 91 = 9 Thus 91>2 must be a square root of 9. That is, 91>2 = 3. The example suggests that b1>n can be defined in terms of roots according to the following definition. Definition of b1/n If n is an even positive integer and b Ú 0, then b1>n is the nonnegative real number such that (b1>n)n = b.

We begin with the case of zero as an exponent. n Definition of b0 For any nonzero real number b, b0 = 1. EXAMPLE Note 3 0 a b = 1 4 30 = 1 Note that -70 = - (70) = - 1. - 70 = - 1 (a2 + 1)0 = 1 Now we extend the definition to include negative integers. Definition of b؊n If b Z 0 and n is a natural number, then b-n = 1 1 and -n = b n. bn b EXAMPLE 3-2 = 1 1 = 9 32 EXAMPLE 1 1 = 43 = 64 4-3 7 7 5-2 = 2 = 25 7-1 5 Evaluate an Exponential Expression Evaluate. a. b. c.
