Course objectives
The course links up high school knowledge with basic concepts of discrete mathematics. It mainly deals with fundaments of mathematical logic, set theory, combinatorics and graph theory. After passing the course, the student will be able to understand and explain basic mathematical notions and techniques and their mutual context.
  • Basic logical concepts (formulae, notation for mathematical statements, proofs)
  • Basics of set theory (set operations, including the Cartesian product).
  • Mappings (types of mappings, composition).
  • Cardinality of a set (finite, countable and uncountable sets).
  • Relations (types and properties of relations, composition).
  • Equivalences and partitions (kernel of a mapping, constructions of selected number domains).
  • Ordered sets (order relations, Hasse diagrams, complete lattices, isotone mappings).
  • Combinatorics (permutation, combination, inclusion and exclusion principle).
  • Graph theory (oriented and non-oriented graphs, conectedness, skeletons, Euler graphs, basic alghorithms).

Teaching methods
The subject consists of talks and obligatory seminars. The talk presents key notions, their properties and methods of use. Problems are collectively solved in seminars to develop student's insight.
Assessment methods
Students are examined in 2 tests during the term (10 pts per each) and in the final written test (80 pts). The mark is calculated as follows: A 90-100, B 80-89, C 70-79, D 60-69, E 50-59, F 0-49.
Language of instruction
