Discrete Structure CS 203 Introduction Lecture 1 2 Computer science Computer science or computing science (abbreviated CS or CompSci) is the scientific approach to computation and its applications. A computer scientist specializes in the theory of computation and the design of computers or computational systems. 3 CS Branches Its subfields can be divided into a variety of theoretical and practical disciplines. computational complexity theory (which explores the fundamental properties of computational problems), are highly abstract 4 CS Branches computer graphics emphasize real-world applications. programming language theory considers various approaches to the description of computation, whilst the study of computer programming itself investigates various aspects of the use of programming language and complex systems. Human-computer interaction considers the challenges in making computers and computations useful, usable, and universally accessible to humans. 5 CS Mobile Computing Computer Architecture Natural Language Processing Robotics Computer Networks Software Engineering Database Administration Data Warehousing and Data Mining Game Development 6 CS Concurrent, Parallel, and Distributed Systems Communications and Security Web Science Artificial Intelligence User Interface Engineering Image Processing Computer Aided Engineering 7 CS Bioinformatics Medical Informatics Cryptography Algorithm Analysis Simulation and Modeling Operating Systems Performance Analysis 8 CS Career Designing and implementing software.

Probability of winning Texas Hold’em? How can I encrypt a message? Shortest paths between two cities using public transportation? How many steps required to sort 10,000 numbers? Is this algorithm correct? How to design a circuit that multiply two integers? Course content very approximately in temporal order Logic and Reasoning Sets, Functions, Sequences and Sums Number Theory, Algorithms, the Integers Induction and Recursion Counting, Relations Graph Theory Overall course context First course in CS Major Students will have taken CS102, CS201 Broad range of mathematical background of entering students Goals of the course Formalism for later study Learn how to do a mathematical argument for CS Course Overview Discrete Structure is essentially that branch of Computer science & Mathematics. As computers are discrete object operating one jumpy, discontinuous step at a time, Discrete Struct is the right framework for describing precisely Computer Science concepts. 25 Quick Overview Discrete Sturcture helps provide… …the machinery necessary for creating sophisticated algorithms …the tools for analyzing their efficiency …the means of proving their validity 26 Graph Theory Euler Paths and Circuits In order to minimize cost to the city, how should weekly garbage collection routes be designed for Detroit’s 350,000 households? Quick Overview - Topics Logic and Sets Make notions you’re already used to from programming a little more rigorous (operators) Fundamental to all mathematical disciplines Useful for digital circuits, hardware design Elementary Number Theory Get to rediscover the old reliable number and find out some surprising facts Very useful in crypto-systems 28 Quick Overview - Topics Proofs (especially induction) If you want to debug a program beyond a doubt, prove that it’s bug-free Proof-theory has recently also been shown to be useful in discovering bugs in pre-production hardware Counting and Combinatorics Compute your odds of winning lottery Important for predicting how long certain computer program will take to finish Useful in designing algorithms 29 Counting & Arranging How secure are your passwords? If your password consists of 3 letters and 3 numerals, how likely is it that someone could successfully guess the configuration? Coding Information Identification Numbers What mathematics is involved in the design of UPC codes? Grading The overall grade will be based upon 30% for homework or assignment, quiz, and lab 70% final Extra credit questions will be always available. Quick Test... Count the green squares… you will have three seconds… How many were there?
