First thing, this book was not meant to learn from. They most likely have already seen that material on integers and functions in books like “Mathematical Proofs: My teacher was telling me how Abstract Algebra logic is important for computer science majors.


It’s like learning flamenco after spending years dancing waltzes oh, and did anybody mention that flamenco includes singing?
