Discrete Mathematics

Course aims

Each student is supposed to
- analyze real life problems
- express them using discrete mathematics formulation
- solve the problem using methods of discrete mathematics
- give an interpretation of the theoretical results in the terms of the original problems
At the same time he should decide what are the limits of an ideal theoretical solution in contrast to the real situation.
