By Paul R. Halmos

From the reports: "...He (the writer) makes use of the language and notation of standard casual arithmetic to kingdom the elemental set-theoretic proof which a starting scholar of complex arithmetic must know...Because of the casual approach to presentation, the publication is eminently suited to use as a textbook or for self-study. The reader should still derive from this quantity a greatest of realizing of the theorems of set thought and in their uncomplicated value within the research of mathematics." - "Philosophy and Phenomenological Research".

Finite Mathematics: An Applied Approach, 11th Edition

Now in its 11th variation, this article once more lives as much as its recognition as a essentially written, complete finite arithmetic booklet. The 11th variation of Finite arithmetic builds upon an exceptional beginning through integrating new gains and methods that additional increase scholar curiosity and involvement.
