Reviewed by David Miller, Professor, West Virginia University on 4/18/ Comprehensiveness rating: 5 see less. This textbook is very comprehensive. Covers a basic review of sets and set operations, logic and logical statements, all the proof techniques, set theory proofs, relation and functions, and additional material that is helpful for upper-level proof course preparation (like a chapter /5(6). Introduction to Mathematical Sociology also features numerous exercises throughout, and is accompanied by easy-to-use Mathematica-based computer simulations that students can use to examine the effects of changing parameters on model behavior. Provides an up-to-date and self-contained introduction to mathematical sociology.
