- In order to run LaTeX on your own computer, you will need to install TeX and LaTeX. I haven't tried to download it, but a number of freeware and shareware implementations are available. You can look through the CTAN or LaTeX Project websites above for pointers. If you're running Windows, you might want to try this TeX/LaTeX implementation, which looks promising: http://www.miktex.org/

**Textbook**

The class textbook, Discrete
Mathematics and its Applications 4/e (Kenneth H. Rosen, McGraw-Hill,
1999) has an excellent website, with student resources and links
to many useful online resources.
