Lecture location: Hopkinson Lecture Room
Lecture times: 11:00 on MWF starting 09-Oct-98

This course (which is not directly examined) is intended to (re-)introduce various mathematical notations and ideas needed for the immediately following Data Structures and Algorithms course. Part IB students will have acquired this material during their study in Part IA; this course summarises (in an introductory manner) key points, including the common mathematical notation and notions used in Cambridge Computer Science. It assumes minimal mathematical background (indeed, this course should be too trivial for you if you have already studied two or more years of a Mathematics degree).

The general areas covered in the four lectures are
