    Course Description

    This is an introductory course in Discrete Mathematics oriented toward Computer Science and Engineering. The course divides roughly into thirds:

    1) Fundamental concepts of Mathematics: definitions, proofs, sets, functions, relations.
    2) Discrete structures: modular arithmetic, graphs, state machines, counting.
    3) Discrete probability theory.

    This course was also taught as part of the Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA) programme as course number SMA 5512 (Mathematics for Computer Science).
