Discrete Mathematics, SS 06

Michael Joswig, Fachbereich Mathematik, TU Darmstadt.

This course is an introduction to discrete mathematics aimed primarily at students of mathematics of the fourth semester and beyond. However, the course is open to other students interested in this topic. In particular, students of computer science are welcome to attend.

The course will be tested as pure mathematics. Only for MCS-students it will be accepted as applied mathematics.
