## Contents

Introduction to elementary objects of discrete mathematics, such as permutations, partitions, graphs. Treatment of basic methods of enumeration. Generating functions and solving recursions. Elementary terms of graph theory. Application to the complexity analysis of algorithms and questions of statistical physics.

## Qualification Goals

Students can

• understand basic principles of elementary structures of discrete mathematics,
• recognise that discrete structures can be found into other areas of mathematics and are profitably applied there.

Students practice

• mathematical methods (development of mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training of the ability to abstract, proof methods),
• in the recitation classes, oral communication skills through discussion and free speech in front of an audience.

## Prerequisites

This page describes a module according to the latest valid module guide in Winter semester 2016/17. Most rules valid for a module are not covered by the examination regulations and can therefore be updated on a semesterly basis. The following versions are available in the online module guide:

The module guide contains all modules, independent of the current event offer. Please compare the current course catalogue in Marvin.
