About this Unit
This unit builds upon the knowledge acquired in the prerequisite unit Discrete Mathematics and helps students to develop understanding and mathematical maturity. The unit covers more sophisticated counting techniques, additional concepts in graph theory, and it introduces coding theory. Many applications of these concepts are included, and some combinatorial algorithms are studied. The applications and techniques presented in the unit are used to model systems such as transport networks and social networks, and they have relevance for communication, computing, probability, statistics, and science, and for many everyday problems such as scheduling.
