Discrete mathematics, in essence, centres around the study of mathematical structures that exhibit a fundamental discreteness rather than continuity. Unlike real numbers, which exhibit smooth variations, discrete mathematics revolves around entities like integers, graphs, and logical statements, which do not exhibit such smooth transitions but instead feature distinct and separated values. Consequently, discrete mathematics excludes topics encompassed by “continuous mathematics,” such as calculus or Euclidean geometry. Discrete objects are often countable through integers. To succinctly put it, discrete mathematics focuses on countable sets, which may include finite sets or sets with a cardinality analogous to the natural numbers. Nonetheless, the term “discrete mathematics” lacks a precise definition and is more accurately characterized by what it omits, specifically the domain of continuously varying quantities and related concepts.
