His research interests include developing and analyzing optimization models for studying complex adaptive systemsand basic research in deterministic optimization, including combinatorial optimization, linear and nonlinear programming.
He has published over 20 papers on both topics. Product details File Size: Up to 3 simultaneous devices, per publisher limits Publisher: Wiley; 6 edition July 19, Publication Date: February 4, Sold by: Not enabled X-Ray for Textbooks: Not Enabled Enhanced Typesetting: This text makes a great oroofs and provides a systematic approach for teaching undergraduate and graduate students how to read, understand, think about, and do proofs.
The approach is to categorize, identify, and explain at the student’s level the various techniques that are used repeatedly in all proofs, regardless of the subject in which the proofs arise.
How to Read and Do Proofs also explains when each technique is likely to be used, based on certain key words that appear in the problem under consideration. Doing so enables students to choose a technique consciously, based on the form of the problem. Read more Read yo. Discover Prime Book Box for Kids.

How to Read and Do Proofs an Introduction to Mathematical Thought Processes
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. This book is among a handful that are recommended for new college math majors, minors, and probably a larger group, computer science students who have to take discrete math. I came across it on a discrete math syllabus. It seems very well put together, some seem to prefer the Velleman, others prefer this. The 2 negative reviews are not actually reviews, just people who could not figure out their kindle, and they should probably be deleted.
A benefit of this book is that there are 15 lectures as well as other supplemental material at the wiley website. Personally I bought this as well as the Velleman, and a few others, to try to prep as much as I can, and to have d hand for reference.
There is a ton of material out there on college-level math, but not all of it is well organized, clear, and systematic solkw this.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Prior to discovering this book, I have read tons of guides and books on how to do proofs. I am an undergrad just entering my final year. I have Proocs to fully comprehend how to do proos properly. Every book, auther, or professor speaks about proofs without understanding where the bottle neck in a student’s knowledge lies.
Daniel Solow is the messiah or me. I was lost but now I am found. He sheds away the fluff and gives you a true distilled approach to the matter. By the first two chapthers alone is worth the “price of admission”.
He gives you a strong foundation in order to build upon. I went back to old proofs that were assigned for homework and I see them with much greater clarity. All I can say is thank you Daniel for showing me the way to become a better mathematician.
You don’t even need calculus! I wish Proogs read this a lot sooner I have, I thing, all the other books that talk about proofs, but for me this is the best. This book works for Mathematicians too. Now you can have a Real Analysis Book that use the Dr. Solow Method of analyzing proofs, its name is: Introduction to Real Analysis by Michael J. Bought this book because I was so bad at proofs.
The book is very good. However, it is no elixir. You eaniel have to put tons of time to get better with proofs.
Unfortunately, I got busy and did not put the time or effort. However, I did see that the book is very good and intuitive. Just be ready to spend many hours to doing proofs! Surely, you will benefit greatly! I tried the book of proofs and how to prove it. I liked both but ny that I was struggling with proofs still and didn’t feel I was well equipped enough to tackle proofs that required any ingenuity How to read and do proofs actually gives you many different methods Forward backwards method should be introduced in byy proof books in your tool box to prepare you for tackling any proof.
The caniel does an excellent job explaining annd and even does proof profs that breaks down the methods that are used.
How to read and do proofs by Daniel Solow
If you want more thorough coverage on how to actually tackle proof problems then I would get this books. Only reason I gave it 4 starts is because you have to go online to see the solutions and I find that their could be more actual proof problems in the back. Even though I knew the material of this book, it is very good to know the various types of proofs and this book gives exactly that picture. Exercises are extremely easy.
The point is not to learn solving hard problems but to understand the various types of proofs. Mason et al along with this fo.
How to Read and Do Proofs: An Introduction to Mathematical Thought Processes, 6th Edition
For non-math majors, we do not have a math professor to help us understand what math is about. Books sklow these are reasonably good substitute for that. My strong belief is that a mentor can make all the difference and we would not need most of these books; however, such mentors especially in pure math are simply not available unless you are a math student trying to earn your PhD under the guidance of a professor.
One person found this helpful. An Introduction to Mathematical Thought Processes Daniek typesetting is less elegant than for the further editions, but all the exercises have solutions at the end of the book instead of just half of the exercises in the other editions. I firmly believe in solving and checking as silow exercises as one can. The book is fun and extremely clear, which is a rarity in mathematics.
Most mathematicians are not good at understanding where the students get stuck, so they plow forward and leave you in the dust. This one, you can read like a novel. This text is recommended by Harvard University for a course entitled “Introduction to the Theory of Computation”. The text is designed to give its reader, in a concise manner, the toolset required to read and write like a mathematician, provided that you have some knowledge of basic algebra and geometry – the writer is concerned with mathematical proofs as they relate to discrete mathematics so no calculus.
I believe the text is an excellent tool for learning how to solve problems and think logically. I think that anyone who is comfortable with algebra and geometry should read this text to broaden their understanding of mathematics – regardless of age. See all 46 reviews.
