Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to explain the reasons for the inaccuracies that often arise when calculating with computers and know basic methods for estimating these inaccuracies.  Students will know basic iteration techniques for solving application problems using computers.  They will be able to process and solve elementary combinatorial and probabilistic tasks with the help of an introduction to probability calculus.  Students will develop the ability to analyze real or planned systems by abstracting practical discrete mathematics tasks from the field of IT into mathematical structures.  Students will be able to use elementary methods of number theory in cryptographic applications and coding.
