I'm running short on money (again) after buying a new cell phone and (finally) getting a new computer. I am looking for an online or downloadable (free) Discrete Math textbook. My web search has been somewhat miserable: I have found a couple but the topics vary greatly. I am specifically seeking information about how to solve difference equations (beyond the constant coefficient case) but would be interested in learning other topics that might come up in the book. Any thoughts? Thanks! -Dan

Lots to look at! Thank you all. My interests are specific to difference equations right now but I realize that I have missed a lot by not looking at the subject more carefully so I wanted something more formal than just looking at topics on the internet. Yes, I am looking for completely legal. For right now I am looking for free downloadable e-books. I'm not sure when I can get up a decent amount of money for a book. I will look at your list, Plato, for used copies. Thanks again! -Dan

Although I don't have a copy of Anderson, I see that it has a good spread of coverage from the contents in the link. Spread of contents is an important consideration as I have 3 books specifically on this subject Biggs Discrete Mathematics Garnier Discrete Mathematics Graham Concrete Mathematcs whichis another name used for the subject. and it is surprising how different the coverage of each is. I wondered if Dan's particular interest would be for the solution to pd equations so I included a link to Smith Finite Elements for PDEs. On this theme I also have several other books on Finite Elements and Boundary Element methods.

HERE is my choice. There are good uses copies for c.$20. That text is particularly good on counting.

No idea, I was just looking through my library. The last one is the Oxford standard I had many years ago. Some will be available cheaply s/h. Even more so in the US.
