This three-section chapter reviews rudimentary mathematical concepts, including key notions concerning sets (Sect. 1.1), relations (Sect. 1.2), and graphs (Sect. 1.3). For readers having background in these areas, this chapter can be skipped and treated as a reference for terminology used later in this book.
