Tu 4:30-6:00pm and TBA (GRW 476 or nearby Lounge)
There is no required textbook for this class.
My textbook is available online (to appear, Springer, UTM).
Every lecture will correspond to some section(s) of:
Discrete Mathematics -- Elementary and Beyond, L. Lovasz, J. Pelikan and K. Vesztergombi, Springer
Discrete Mathematics for Computer Scientists, C. Stein, R. Drysdale and K. Boggart, Addison-Wesley (2011)
Mathematical Thinking --- Problem Solving and Proofs, John Dangelo and Douglas West, Prentice Hall
To install the whole laTeX package on a Mac, use MacTex html
It's big (about 1.6G), so be patient, it may take over 2 hours!
After installation, be sure to run Tex Live Utility to update all the packages.
To install the whole laTeX package on Windows, use proTeXt html
laTeX Tutorial (Especially Section 11): html
Please, read the course notes regularly.
Start working early on the problems sets. They will be hard!
Take pride in your work. Be clear, rigorous, neat, and concise. Preferably, use a good text processor, such as LATEX, to write up your solutions.
Due to the difficulty of the homework problems and in order to
give you an opportunity to learn how to collaborate
more effectively (I do not mean "copy"),
you are required to work in small groups. A group consists of TWO students.
Only one homework submission per group. All members of a group will get the SAME grade on a homework or a project (please, list all names in a group).
I will give a total of ten homeworks.
It is forbidden to use solutions of problems posted on the internet. If you use resources other than the textbook (or the recommended textbooks) or the class notes, you must cite these references.
