Cover Photo: The stones are discrete objects placed one on top of another like a chain of careful reasoning. A person who decides to build such a tower aspires to the heights and enjoys playing with a challenging problem. Choosing the stones takes both a scientific and an aesthetic sense. Getting them to balance requires patient effort and careful thought. And the tower that results is beautiful. A perfect metaphor for discrete mathematics!
