**DISCRETE MATHEMATICS**

Discrete mathematics is the branch of mathematics dealing with discrete mathematical structures, i.e. mathematical structure over countable sets (finite sets or sets with the same cardinality as the natural numbers).

Topics in discrete mathematics, among others, include combinatorics, graph theory, coding theory and cryptography. Concepts from discrete mathematics are especially useful in studying and describing objects and problems in branches of computer science, such as computer algorithms, programming languages, automated theorem proving, and software development.

Conversely, computer implementations are significant in applying ideas from discrete mathematics to real-world problems, such as in optimization.
