Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science Modules

These modules are offered by members of the Laboratory for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (the DMTCS Lab), a research group in the Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics.

  • DMTCS modules can be taken by Honours students in both Mathematics (MAM4000W) and Applied Mathematics (MAM4001W). They are also popular with students doing Honours in Computer Science.
  • For Applied Mathematics Honours students, they count towards the 60 credits of Applied Mathematics modules taught by MAM.
  • Three modules are currently offered by members of the DMTCS Lab:
    • Complexity Theory (Dr Holger Spakowski)
    • Cryptology (Dr Christine Swart)
    • Graph Theory (Dr David Erwin) 

Only two of these three are offered in any year (one in 1st semester and the other in 2nd semester).

  • ​​From 2017, students taking DMTCS Honours modules will be expected to have taken the 3rd year module 3DM (Discrete Mathematics), or equivalent.
