Discrete Mathematics II - DMTH237

The purpose of this unit is to give a grounding in discrete mathematics. It is important preparation for both theoretical computing and abstract algebra. In particular, the unit: explores the concept of computability, and the measures of computational complexity and finite state machines; studies recurrence relations and generating functions; provides an introduction to matrices with applications to systems of linear equations and vectors; applies graph theory to a range of problems; and examines a variety of error-correcting and public-key cryptography codes.
