What is Discrete Mathematics?
Discrete mathematics is concerned with
arrangements, designs, codes, best patterns, optimal schedules and
What is Theoretical Computer Science?
Theoretical Computer Science is
concerned with the theory of computer algorithms. Together
Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science form powerful
tools for solving important problems of science, industry and government.
What is biomathematics?
Modern biology has changed dramatically in the past two decades. Driven by
large scientific endeavors such as the human genome project, it has become very
much an information science, closely tied to tools and methods of the
mathematical sciences. New algorithms and mathematical models played a central
role in sequencing the human genome and continue to play a crucial role as
biology develops models of information processing in biological organisms. Bio-mathematics is concerned with information processing in biology at all levels, from the molecular to the cell to the organ to the organism to the "system." Bio-mathematics also involves the use of mathematical reasoning to study problems in the spread of disease, growth of populations, changes in ecological systems, etc.
