The course consists of 14 weeks of lectures and exercises.
• The lectures will provide the theory and examples of formal definitions, formal proofs, regular languages, state machines, models of computations, combinatorics, discrete probabilities and modular arithmetic (c.f. ILO).
• The weekly exercises are written exercises that train the students in working with and apply the theory introduced in the lectures. The problems that the students solve in the weekly exercises will prepare the students for the written exam, as the exam will contain problems of similar nature.
