About this product

Product Information

Conceptual Mathematics is the first book to serve as a skeleton key to mathematics for the general reader and as an introduction to categories for computer scientists, logicians, physicists, linguists etc. This book does not presuppose knowledge of specific fields but rather develops elementary categories such as directed graphs and discrete dynamical systems from the beginning.

This item didn’t come in exactly as pictured, but the seller responded immediately and was very gracious in offering me a partial refund even bough I wasn’t expecting one for what I paid for the item. I have bought from this seller before, and they are reputable and stand behind the products they sell. My other transactions with them have been perfect. Great communication. Packaging and price were good. Fairly fast shipping, too. Thanks.
