Objectives The lecture can be viewed as an algorithmic supplement to the classical book "Concrete Mathematics" by Graham, Knuth, and Patashnik. Namely, it presents computer algebra tools for dealing with four mathematical concepts which play a fundamental role in many different areas of mathematics and computer science: symbolic sums, recurrence (difference) equations, generating functions, and asymptotic estimates. Their key features, in isolation or in combination, their mastery by paper and pencil or by computer programs, and their applications, also to "real world problems" like e.g. the analysis of algorithms, are studied.
