Can anyone recommend good, free online articles or books to learn Discrete mathematics? When I google'd for them, I came across few resources..but don't know whether they are good to start learning with. It's better to know a tutorial or a book that get you started in Discrete Mathematics. Can readers of SE Mathematics can suggest a good starting point?

    $\begingroup$ Discrete math is a huge subject. Anything in particular? Also, have you tried mathonline.andreaferretti.it ? $\endgroup$ – Qiaochu Yuan Sep 21 '10 at 5:35
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the link..And I'm interested in topics which is more towards Theoretical Computer Science. $\endgroup$ – Dananjaya Sep 21 '10 at 5:46
  • $\begingroup$ See the suggestions given in math.stackexchange.com/questions/1533/… and math.stackexchange.com/questions/350/…. $\endgroup$ – Larry Wang Sep 21 '10 at 8:11
  • $\begingroup$ This question is actually a superset of the first question I linked to above, so perhaps that one (about books) should be considered a duplicate of this? $\endgroup$ – Larry Wang Sep 21 '10 at 8:15

The UVic Discrete Mathematics Study Guide is also good for concise notes on the basics:



Try MIT Open Courseware -- Course 6.042J (Mathematics for Computer Science) on http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/ would be a good place to start.
