Unit 1: Sets, Set Relations, and Set Functions
Computer scientists often find themselves working with groups of homogeneous or heterogeneous entities. Mathematicians devised single-membership set theory to respond to these situations. In this unit, we will cover the theoretical background of sets and take a look at associated definitions, notations, relations, and functions. This is a fundamental tool of mathematics and computer science, and is essential to understanding the other topics in this course.
Completing this unit should take you approximately 5 hours.
