This course is an extension to the Discrete Mathematics. We will introduce a

couple of interesting and useful combinatorial mathematics tools and concepts,

and we hope that by mastering these techniques, we can strengthen our problem

solving abilities.

Most of our topics have direct application to important CS areas, including

coding, crypotography, network design, data compression, theory of

computation, and analysis of algorithms.
