Math 327, Professor Loring
This is a survey of mostly standard topics in discrete mathematics
Many of its topics are chosen to meet specific needs of EECE students,
but the intended audience is larger that the EECE students
Math 327 is good preparation for probability theory.
Discrete models come up in biology, economics, chemistry,
computer science, and many other fields.
Some of the topics in this class should be in the
high school curriculum, but tend to be driven out by
calculus-fixation. This is a good class for teachers.
Discrete mathematics is the opposite of continuous mathematics.
Calculus is continuous mathematics.
Discrete mathematics is, roughly speaking, the study of concepts
and applications built atop set theory and the integers.
