Course content

This is a course in basic mathematical and logical methods. Emphasis is placed on understanding and applying mathematical concepts and notation relevant to a study in computer science. The course exercises the ability to think systematically from assumptions, solve theoretical problems, as well as formalize and carry out mathematical reasoning on their own.

Learning outcome

After finishing IN1150, you´ll be able to:

  • implement, understand and formalize mathematical reasoning using different proofing methods.
  • apply basic quantitative and know basic notation and terminology regarding sets
  • understand the basic statement logic and first order logic, ie logical concepts such as valuation, logical equivalence, logical consistency, validity, fulfillment, falsibility and contradiction.
  • define, apply and calculate basic mathematical structures such as amounts, tuples, relationships, functions, equivalences, partitions, formulas, strings, languages, graphs, regular expressions.
  • define sets inductively, define recursive functions on these quantities and prove claims about these using induction evidence.
  • apply and explain basic combinatorics, graph theory, formal languages and logical calculations.
