ObjectivesThe course deals with those topics from mathematics that have proven to be particularly relevant to students in computer science.
General thematicsThe course covers basic elements on set theory (sets, relations and functions, induction and recursion), partially ordered sets (posets, lattices), number theory (divisibility, prime numbers, congruences), semigroups and monoids, groups, rings, vector spaces and linear mappings. Relevant applications of each chapter of the course to computer science, are disccused.
Seminary / Laboratory thematicsSeminars and laborators are grouped around the chapter currently discused in the course. They are aimed to illustrate the topics of the chapter mainly by practical applications.
