Discrete mathematics is the study of finite or countable discrete structures; it spans such topics as graph theory, coding theory, design theory, and enumeration. The faculty at Michigan Tech specialize in constructive combinatorics, particularly the construction of error-correcting codes and combinatorial designs. Another area of interest is enumerative combinatorics.
