DISCRETE STRUCTURES AND ALGORITHMS
Not currently offered
Credit points: 15
This capstone mathematics subject covers an array of fundamental concepts from discrete mathematics and algebra as well as developing fundamental skills for both further mathematics and for mathematics in the workplace. The subject is a continuation and expansion of MAT2AAL, with a deeper treatment of the theory of groups embellished by applications to counting, games and patterns. Around two thirds of the subject concerns ordered sets and lattices, and their role in mathematical foundations, algebra, information analysis and computer science.
