Discrete Mathematics & Analysis

level of course unit

Bachelor

Learning outcomes of course unit

Students master the fundamentals of mathematical language and are familiar with basic algebraic and algorithmic structures for modelling. Students know and understand relevant structures and methods for application in computer science. This enables them to apply that knowledge to algorithms, data structures, database applications, etc.
