Course Objectives • Deep understanding of discrete structures used in Computer Science • Developing problem solving and analytical skills • Developing algorithmic and computational skills – Ability to understand mathematical arguments and their design – Understanding of logic – Proofing techniques 8

Course Objectives Think Mathematically The very foundation of Computer Science 9

Discrete Structures/Mathematics • Discrete mathematics deals with objects that come in discrete bundles, e. g. , 1 or 2 babies. • Continuous mathematics deals with objects that vary continuously, e. g. , 3. 42 inches from a wall. • Think of digital watches versus analog watches (ones where the second hand loops around continuously without stopping). 10

Discrete vs. Continuous Discrete Continuous 11

Why Study Discrete Structures It is the mathematics underlying almost all of computer science: • Program verification – Analyzing algorithms for correctness and efficiency • Finding efficient algorithms – (for sorting, searching, etc. ) • Formalizing security requirements • Designing cryptographic protocols for enhanced security • Graph Theory (Networks – both physical & social) 12

Course Topics • • • Foundations: Logic Methods of Proof Set Theory Induction and Recursion Counting Relations Graphs Trees Introduction of Algorithms 13

Course requires original thinking • Many students find this course to be significantly more challenging than other courses • Because (among other things), it teaches mathematical reasoning and problem solving – Requires original and deep thinking • Book exercises – A way to let you successfully apply concepts using your own creativity One of the primary goals of this course: • To learn how to attack problems that may be somewhat different from any you may have previously seen 14

LECTURE 1 Foundations: Logic Chapter 1 Sections 1. 1 and 1. 2 19

Introduction Logic is the study of the principles and methods that distinguishes between a valid an invalid argument Logic deals with general reasoning laws, which you can trust 20

Applications • Applied in proving program correctness and verification • Databases (Relational Algebra and calculus) • Artificial Intelligence 21

Propositional Logic 22

Proposition • 23

Truth Values • If a proposition is true, we say that it has a truth value of “true” • If a proposition is false, its truth value is “false” • The truth values “true” and “false” are, respectively, denoted by the letters T and F 24

Examples • • 25

Context • 26

Quiz • 27

Quiz • 28

• The area of logic that deals with propositions is called the propositional calculus or propositional logic • It was first developed systematically by the Greek philosopher Aristotle more than 2300 years ago 29

Compound Propositions • Compound propositions, are formed from existing propositions using logical operators (also called as connectives) • The methods to produce new propositions (from those that we already have) were discussed by the English mathematician George Boole in 1854 in his book The Laws of Thought 30

Symbols for Connectives Symbol Meaning Negation Or, disjunction And, conjunction Implication Bi-implication 31

Negation • 32

Examples • 33

Truth Table for the Negation • 34

The Conjunction Definition 2 Let p and q be propositions. The conjunction of p and q, denoted by p ∧ q, is the proposition “p and q. ” The conjunction p ∧ q is true when both p and q are true and is false otherwise. 35

Examples • 36

Truth Table • Can you do it for three propositions? • How many possible answers? 37

The Disjunction Definition 3 Let p and q be propositions. The disjunction of p and q, denoted by p ∨ q, is the proposition “p or q. ” The disjunction p ∨ q is false when both p and q are false and is true otherwise. 38

Truth Table 39

Inclusive vs. Exclusive “Students who have taken calculus or computer science can take this class. ” (Inclusive or) “Students who have taken calculus or computer science, but not both, can enroll in this class. ” Students who have taken either calculus or computer science, can enroll in this class. (exclusive or) 40

Exclusive Disjunction Definition 4: Let p and q be propositions. The exclusive or of p and q, denoted by p ⊕ q, is the proposition that is true when exactly one of p and q is true and is false otherwise. • Either p or q. • p or q but not both. 41

Truth Table • Either p or q. • p or q but not both. 42

“Inclusive or” or “Exclusive or” “Tonight I will stay home or go out to a movie. ” ? ? ? Human languages can be ambiguous So be careful 43

Conditional Statements/ Implication p: Premise, Hypothesis, antecedent q: Conclusion, Consequence • The statement p → q is true when – both p and q are true – p is false (no matter what truth value q has) 44

Conditional Statements Definition 5: Let p and q be propositions. The conditional statement p → q is the proposition “if p, then q. ” The conditional statement p → q is false when p is true and q is false, and true otherwise. In the conditional statement p → q, p is called the hypothesis (or antecedent or premise) and q is called the conclusion (or consequence). 45

Other forms • Conditional statements play an essential role in mathematical reasoning • Many ways to express an implication (p -> q) : 47

p: you get 100% on the final q: you will get an A p implies that q. you get 100% on the final implies that you will get an A. If p, then q. If you get 100% on the final, then that you will get an A. 48

If p, q. If you get 100% on the final, that you will get an A. p is sufficient for q. Get 100% on the final is sufficient for getting an A. q only if p. you will get an A only if you get 100% on the final. q unless ￢ p. you will get an A unless you don’t get 100% on final. 49

Examples • If I fall in a lake, then I’ll get wet. • If gravity does not exist then I can fly. • If sun rises from the west then it’ll be the end of our planet. • If the moon is made of cheese, then the earth is rectangular. 50

Example Cont. If you get 100% on the final, then you will get an A. • 51

Exercise • Translate the propositions into respective formulae – It is raining and windy. – It is sunny but freezing. – Give me tea or coffee. – If there are DDP students and enrolled in BS, then I will teach DS. 52

Truth tables p 0 0 1 1 q 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 53

Exercise • Can you complete the following truth table without asking me any question in class? p q r p, q and r are parameters in this exercise 54
