Discrete Math

Discrete mathematics is concerned with sets of elements that are finite, or countable. This is contrary to many mathematical fields, which deal with infinite processes or the infinite set of real numbers. An important part of discrete math, and main focus of this course, has to do with algorithms, which are specific instructions for performing certain computations.
