"I think that Solow has written an excellent text that I will highly recommend as a supplementary text for several upper division mathematics courses including abstract algebra and mathematical analysis." (Phillip Bean, Mercer University) "His already fine book becomes more usable by having the four subject-targeted appendices." (Richard Delaware, UMKC) "The book covers all the basic proof techniques in a very readable, concise way without overwhelming the student. The organization is great. I like the short chapters highlighting only one concept at a time." (Josephine Hamer, Western Connecticut State University) "Very clear, rigorous, extremely thorough, almost unique in what it tries to do, reaches out to weaker students." (Michael Thaddeus, Columbia University)From the Publisher:
An easy-to-use guide that shows how to read, understand, and do proofs. Shows how any proof can be understood as a sequence of techniques. Covers the full range of techniques used in proofs, such as the contrapositive, induction, and proof by contradiction. Explains how to identify which techniques are used and how they are applied in the specific problem. Illustrates how to read written proofs with many step-by-step examples. Includes new, expanded appendices related to discrete mathematics, linear algebra, modern algebra and real analysis.
