From the Preface:
Pass and Tseng wrote:Why study discrete mathematics in computer science? It does not directly help us write programs. At the same time, it is the mathematics underlying almost all of computer science.

Here are a few examples: 
• Designing high-speed networks and message routing paths.
• Finding good algorithms for sorting.
• Performing web searches.
• Analysing algorithms for correctness and efficiency.
• Formalizing security requirements.
• Designing cryptographic protocols.
