Syllabus

This unit teaches the fundamental methods of discrete mathematics that underlie modern software engineering and information technology. Topics include logic, basic proof, induction, sets, functions, relations, automata, graphs, and trees. The unit provides students with a thorough understanding of the basic techniques, together with an introduction to applications, such as the RSA algorithm or correctness of algorithms.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate an understanding of the basic concepts;

2. Compute with logic, sets, functions, relations, automata, graphs and trees;

3. Recognise the connections between proof and algorithmic thinking;

4. Apply the methods in straightforward real-life examples; and

5. Interpret and assess the real-life implications of these examples.
