Just a few other comments on our text:

It was originally published as Applied Discrete Structures for Computer Science, first by SRA and then by MacMillan.  Pearson owned the copyright in 2010, but the released it to us at no cost, to our surprise.  

The 1980's version featured Pascal, and we've replaced it with Mathematica and Sage.
