The course syllabus is available online.
There is one required textbooks for this class:
- Discrete Structures, Logic, and Computability by James

You can install the Prolog environment that we will use in class
by going to SWI Prolog.
You want the latest Stable release. Versions
are available for most computing environments. This software is already
installed on the Truman Student image, meaning on pretty much every
Windows computer available to students on campus.
We will be using LaTex to format homework problems for submission.
Here are some online resources to help with that.
You can download MikTeX and
install MikTeX on your own (Windows) computer. From this page choose
Download MikTeX 2.9 from the left menu, then choose what you want to
install. MikTeX is installed on all Truman Windows computers.
Another way to use LaTeX
is Overleaf which is a WYSIWYG
editor that lets you type in LaTeX and immediately see the
Tom Schneider's incredibly complete resource
page for biologists has endless help for non-biologists
with lots of LaTeX math symbols is also available. If you can't
find the symbol you want on this page, then you probably don't really
want that symbol.
