  • Information from the former chapter 3 "The Fundamentals: Algorithms, the Integers, and Matrices" has been expanded and divided into two separate chapters 3 "Algorithms" and 4 "Number Theory and Cryptography".
  • Chapter 3: Provides useful rules for big-O estimates of logarithms, powers, and exponential functions.
  • New Chapter 4:
    • New section 4.6 "Cryptography" covers cryptanalysis (the process of breaking codes, ciphers, and cryptosystems); public key cryptosystems; RSA cryptosystem, invented by Ronald Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman; encryption and decryption of RSA; Diffie-Hellman key agreement protocol and digital signatures.
  • Chapter 10:
    • Matching in bipartite graphs, including Hall's Marriage Theorem
    • Vertex connectivity, edge connectivity, and n-connectedness
