After this course participants are able to:
 Use the mathematical style often applied in statements and proofs in the field of computing science.
 Reproduce basic mathematical definitions.
 Prove theorems by applying the appropriate definitions.
 Prove theorems by induction.
 Reason about validity of formulas both in propositional and predicate logic.
 Choose appropriate mathematical concepts to solve problems.


The course Mathematical Structures introduces many mathematical concepts that will be used frequently within the field of computing science.
Instructional Modes
Each week typically has three hours of plenary lectures, one hour of a plenary response lecture, and two hours of parallel tutorial sessions. Every week there will be an individual homework assignment, which is not obligatory, but can lead to a small bonus.

 
Students must have basic knowledge of mathematics at secondary school level (Dutch VWO or equivalent).


The course is finalized with a digital Cirrus exam.
By doing the weekly homework assignments properly, a small bonus can be earned. The homework consists of a part that has to be handed in as a PDF in Brightspace and of a part that has to be completed on the online mathematics platform sowiso.nl. Note that the bonus is only valid if the grade for the final exam is at least 5.0.

 


   Recommended materialsBookIt is not obligatory to buy the book, but we do expect that you have access to it. However, since the same book is also used in the course Combinatorics and it is simply a good book, we do recommend that you buy the book.
We use the socalled 'International Student Edition' which is not the same as the .pdf that you can easily find on the Internet. If you prefer to use this .pdf, realize that the references to the parts that you should read are not correct and that the text in general is not exactly the same, although similar. So using the .pdf is at your own risk.
