Finite Mathematics and Its Applications, Eighth Edition by Larry Joel Goldstein, David I. Schneider, Martha J. Siegel, T. Graedel (Prentice Hall) This work is the eighth edition of our text for the traditional finite mathematics course taught to first- and second-year college students, especially those majoring in business and the social and biological sciences.
This is not a fundamental mathematics book, nor is it intended to serve a textbook for a specific course, but rather as a reference for students in chemistry and physics at all university levels.
The mathematical and biological background re­quired is kept to a minimum so that the topics are accessible to students and scientists in biology, mathematics, and engineering.

 Finite Geometries?
Mathematical questions about counting, the collection of ideas that now belongs to the branch of mathematics called combinatorics, were developed surprisingly late in mathematics.
Kirkman was one of the early pioneers of the study of combinatorics, the mathematics of counting problems, as well as an early investigator of the properties of 3-dimensional polyhedra from a point of view that took into account non-metrical considerations.
In particular, the structure of finite geometries is often used in the branch of statistics devoted to the design of experiments.

 Discrete mathematics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Discrete mathematics, also called finite mathematics, is the study of mathematical structures that are fundamentally discrete, in the sense of not supporting or requiring the notion of continuity.
Most, if not all, of the objects studied in finite mathematics are countable sets, such as integers, finite graphs, and formal languages.
Concepts and notations from discrete mathematics are useful to study or describe objects or problems in computer algorithms and programming languages.
