How do you cite a book in the Discrete Mathematics referencing style? (2022 Guide)

A book citation in Discrete Mathematics always includes the author name(s), the publication year, the book title, and the publisher. Here’s an example

Here’s an example book citation in Discrete Mathematics using placeholders:
[1]
F.N. Last Name, Title, Edition, Publisher, City, 2000.
So if we want to cite, for example, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” by Maya Angelou we’d do so like this:
Discrete Mathematics citation:
[1]
M. Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, 1st ed., Random House, New York, 1969.
And an in-text citation book citation in Discrete Mathematics looks like this: [1]
