Course 02: Discrete Mathematics (Arsdigita University)
This course covers the mathematical topics most directly related to computer science. Topics include: logic, relations, functions, basic set theory, countability and counting arguments, proof techniques, mathematical induction, graph theory, combinatorics, discrete probability, recursion, recurrence relations, and number theory. Emphasis is placed on providing a context for the application of the mathematics within computer science.
