Discrete mathematics explores finite mathematic objects such as the integers, graphs and logical statements which assume distinct and separated values. The importance of discrete mathematics has greatly increased with the development of digital computers which themselves operate in discrete steps and store data in discrete units (bits). Students will learn the concepts and notation which are fundamental in studying several areas of computer science, including computer algorithms, data structures, programming languages, cryptography and software development.
