CmpE 220 Discrete Computational Structures (3+0+0) 3

  • Course OutlineA course in discrete mathematics should teach students how to work with discrete (meaning consisting of distinct or unconnected elements as opposed to continuous) structures used to represent discrete objects and relationships between these objects. These discrete structures include sets, relations, graphs, trees, and finite-state machines. Topics

    • Logic, Sets, and Functions

    • Methods of Proof

    • Recurrence Relations

    • Binary Relations

    • Graphs

    • Trees

    • Algebraic Structures

    • Introduction to Languages and Grammars

Course Overview

Module #0:Course Overview

What is Mathematics, really?

  • It’s not just about numbers!

  • Mathematics is much more than that:

  • But, these concepts can be about numbers, symbols, objects, images, sounds, anything!

Mathematics is, most generally, the study of any and allcertain truthsabout any and allwell-defined concepts.

So, what’s this class about?

  • What are “discrete structures” anyway?

  • “Discrete” ( “discreet”!) - Composed of distinct, separable parts. (Opposite of continuous.)discrete:continuous :: digital:analog

  • “Structures” - Objects built up from simpler objects according to some definite pattern.

  • “Discrete Mathematics” - The mathematical study of discrete objects and structures.

Discrete Mathematics

  • When using numbers, we’re much more likely to use ℕ (natural numbers) and ℤ (whole numbers) than ℚ (fractions) and ℝ (real numbers).

  • Reason: ℚ and ℝ are densely ordered

  • This notion can be defined precisely

Densely Ordered

  •  ℚ,<  is densely ordered becausex ℚy ℚ(x≠y z (x<z & z<y) )

  • Opposite of densely ordered:discretely ordered

  • Yet, ℚ and ℝ can be defined in terms of discrete concepts (as we have seen)

  • This means that Discrete Mathematics has no exact borders

  • Different books and courses treat slightly different topics






(Orders of Growth)











(Logic Circuits)


Discrete Structures We’ll Study

Some Notations We’ll Learn

Uses of Discrete Math

  • Starting from simple structures of logic and set theory, theories are constructed that capture aspects of reality:

    • Physics (see diagram)

    • Biology (DNA)

    • Common-sense reasoning (logic)

    • Natural Language (trees, sets, functions, ..)

    • Anything that we want to describe precisely

Discrete Math for Computing

  • The basis of all of computing is:Discrete manipulations of discrete structures represented in memory.

  • Discrete Math is the basic language and conceptual foundation for all of computer science.

Algorithms & data structures

Compilers & interpreters.

Formal specification & verification

Computer architecture



Error correction codes

Graphics & animation algorithms, game engines, etc.…

DM is relevant for all aspects of computing!

Course Outline (as per Rosen)

Topics Not Covered

  • Other topics we might not get to this term:

  • Boolean circuits (ch. 10)

  • - You could learn this in more depth in a digital logic course.

  • Models of computing (ch. 11)

  • - Many of these are obsolete for engineering purposes now anyway

  • Linear algebra (not in Rosen, see Math dept.)

  • - Advanced matrix algebra, general linear algebraic systems

Course Objectives

  • Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to:

    • Check validity of simple logical arguments (proofs).

    • Check the correctness of simple algorithms.

    • Creatively construct simple instances of valid logical arguments and correct algorithms.

    • Describe the definitions and properties of a variety of specific types of discrete structures.

    • Correctly read, represent and analyze various types of discrete structures using standard notations.

Have Fun!

  • Many people find Discrete Mathematics more enjoyable than, for example, Analysis:

  • Applicable to just about anything

  • Some nice puzzles

  • Highly varied
