**MB204**Discrete mathematics B && ! NOW (**MB204**Discrete mathematics B )

High school mathematics. Elementary knowledge of algebraic and combinatorial tasks (in the extent of MB101 or MB102). **Course Enrolment Limitations**- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
**Fields of study the course is directly associated with**- there are 16 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
**Course objectives**- At the end of this course, students should be able to:
understand and use methods of number theory to solve simple tasks;
understand approximately how results of number theory are applied in cryptography:
understand basic computational context;

model and solve simple combinatorial problems. **Syllabus**- Number theory:
- divisiblity (gcd, extended Euclid algorithm, Bezout); numerics of big numbers (gcd, modular exponential); prime numbers (properties, basic theorems of arithmetics, factorization, prime number testing (Rabin-Miller, Mersenneho prime numbers); congruences (basic properties, small Fermat theorem; Euler theorem; linear congruences; binomial congruences a primitiv roots; discrete logarithm;
- Number theory applications:
- short introduction to asymetric cryptography (RSA, DH, ElGamal, DSA, ECC); basic coding theory (linear and polynomial codes);
- Combinatorics:
- reminder of basics of combinatorics; generalized binomial theorem; combinatorial identities; Catalan numbers; formal power series; (ordinary) generating functions; exponential generating functions; probabilistic generating functions; solving combinatorial problems with the help of generating functions; solving basic reccurences (Fibonacci).

**Teaching methods**- There are standard two-hour lectures and standard tutorial.
**Assessment methods**- During the semester, two obligatory mid-term exams are evaluated (each for max 10 points). In the seminar groups there are tests during the semester being written. The seminars are evaluated in total by max 5 points. The final practical written test for max 20 points. For successful examination (the grade at least E) the student needs to obtain 20 points or more.
**Language of instruction**- Czech
**Further Comments**- The course is taught annually.

The course is taught: every week. **Listed among pre-requisites of other courses****MB204**Discrete mathematics B
