    What type of math should i learn to solve problems of this algorithm book?

    I am self studying the book of introduction to algorithms third edition by Thomas H. Cormen, Charles E. leiserson, Ronald L Rivest etc.

    I am stumbling about these problems in the appendix A and i am unfamiliar with the math introduced here: (Big O notation, Bounded summation, Summation and products etc.). There is also appendix B and C Which is titled "Sets" and "Probabiliy" and i have little background in also some formulas very difficult to understand.

    Here are the sample problems by the way.

    I would start with Don Knuth's "Fundamental Algorithms" it is the first volume in TAoCP series. It introduces most of the maths you will need. The alternative is "Concrete Mathematics" by Graham, Knuth and Patashnik, which covers more material and in greater depth.
