Are all cardinality groups ten isomorphic
Getting started with math right
In the first year of mathematics studies, the high degree of rigor and abstraction often represents a major hurdle - despite the significant content overlap with school mathematics. Often this is due to a shift in emphasis away from “arithmetic” towards understanding and developing mathematics. This book introduces readers to the scientific-mathematical way of thinking at universities without repeating school mathematics. Computer science students also receive a basis for understanding the concepts of their own subject and algorithmic access to mathematics, which is often only understood as a tool. The text is intended in particular for self-study, with many programming examples in Python and numerous exercises including all associated solutions and program codes.The book is divided into two parts. The first part introduces the basics of logical work: Mathematics has to do with logic, but how exactly and what is logic? What is the basis for mathematical thinking, when are mathematical trains of thought precise and how do you express them and write them down? The second part deals with the question of what numbers actually are and where they come from. From the natural through the whole and rational numbers, the path leads to the real numbers, which can usually no longer be written down exactly as a decimal number, but can only be approximated as precisely as required. It is better to use a computer to carry out such calculation processes, so programming with Python is also introduced in parallel to mathematics.
All algorithms developed, starting with the definition of an addition by simple counting up to the arbitrarily precise approximation of the circle number π, are realized with it. In addition to a solid introduction to the basics of mathematics, the reader also receives the necessary tools for programming applications.
