Building Blocks for Theoretical Computer Science (Version 1.3)

This book teaches you how to read and write mathematical proofs. It also gives a brief introduction to some key topics in theoretical computer science: algorithm analysis and complexity, automata theory, and computability.

From the Preface:

Margaret M. Fleck wrote:This book teaches two different sorts of things, woven together. It teaches you how to read and write mathematical proofs. It provides a survey of basic mathematical objects, notation, and techniques which will be useful in later computer science courses. These include propositional and predicate logic, sets, functions, relations, modular arithmetic, counting, graphs, and trees. And, finally, it gives a brief introduction to some key topics in theoretical computer science: algorithm analysis and complexity, automata theory, and computability.
