MATH320
Discrete Mathematics
Description
Discrete mathematics underpins many areas of modern-day science. In this course, we explore selected topics in discrete mathematics in greater depth and detail. In particular, we investigate some technical methods that allow for elegant solutions to more advanced enumeration questions, and we explore the structural properties of directed graphs and partially-ordered sets (posets).

MATH353
Computational Mathematics and Applications
Description
This course looks at a variety of methods for solving important computational problems that arise in science, engineering and commerce. In addition to applications, we will look at the methods' basic theoretical properties (stability, accuracy, computational complexity, convergence). During the course, you will learn about the performance of the methods through examples and counterexamples that highlight their pros and cons.
