    Discrete mathematics can mean a variety of things. Here are some subjects which are often included in discrete mathematics courses:

    - Logic
    - Set theory
    - Combinatorics
    - Basic number theory
    - Graph theory
    - Coding theory

    Some good books about discrete math are Grimaldi's book and "Concrete mathematics" by Knuth.
