A new textbook covering mathematical topics such as Calculus, Complex Analysis, Matrices and Spectral Analysis and their use in Computer Science is now available as Volume 23 of the series Texts in Computing from College Publications.
The author's overview of this volume may be found at Computation Counts - An Introduction to Analytic Concepts in Computer Science within pages 142-149 on the June 2019 Bulletin of the EATCS
About: This book provides an introduction to several mathematical topics of importance in Computer Science but often considered to be outside the scope of traditional Discrete Methods courses. It offers basic treatments of Calculus, Complex Numbers, Statistics, and Linear Algebra with a particular emphasis on Spectral Methods. The presentation is intended for students with minimal mathematical background. Its principal aim being to emphasize the significant applications in modern CS for which some awareness of these fields is essential, e.g. Machine Learning, Data Science, Computational Game Theory, and Optimization. The focus is, therefore, directed towards applications in CS rather than detailed mathematical exposition.
