This is part 1 in the course in logic and discrete mathematics.
We will go through basic concepts in discrete mathematics.
This part has three purposes.
- Provide training in working with abstract concepts and formal methods.
- As a prerequisite for part 2 of the course.
- As a prerequisite for other courses where formal methods are used,
and to clarify some concepts in related formal courses (e.g. the PINK course).
Discrete Mathematics Course Material
- Lecture notes (available below). These notes are up-to-date. They may have older dates on them, but that is OK!.
