Objectives Students will have knowledge about the foundations of discrete structures in mathematics and computer sciences. They will be familiar with the presented concepts and mathematical models. They will be able to apply them autonomously in examples and case studies.
Subject Foundations: basic principles of set theory; relations and their properties, in particular orderings and equivalenzes, partitions; functions and properties like monotonicity, boundedness, being injective/surjective/bijective; operations on functions (composition, inverse); real functions, sequences.

Basics from "Numbers and Counting": natural numbers, integers, rational, and real numbers; (complete) induction; recursion (definition, solution strategies); combinatorics (permutations, binomial coefficients); applications.

Elementary Number Theory: computations in Z and Zn (greatest common divisor, least common multiple); Euclidean algorithm; prime numbers, fundamental theorem of number theory (prime decomposition); linear diophantine equations; congruences and modular arithmetics; Fermat's little theorem, Chinese remainder theorem, applications.

Graphs: directed and undirected graphs; paths, cycles, connectivity, connected components; isomorphic graphs; trees; applications.

Criteria for evaluation General: knowledge, understanding, and application of presented contents; knowledge, familiarity, and application of proposed concepts and methods. Specifically: Written exam.
