Overview

Discrete methods underlie the areas of data structures, computational complexity and the analysis of algorithms. Continuing advances in technology - particularly in applications of computing - have enhanced the importance of discrete (or finite) mathematics for understanding not only the foundations of computer science but also the basis on which computational solutions to a wide variety of applications problems rests.

This course introduces the basic elements of discrete mathematics which provide a foundation for an understanding of algorithms and data structures used in computing. Topics covered include number systems, logic, relations, functions, induction, recursion, Boolean algebra and graph theory.
