Developing mathematics to describe structures limited to integers
This area of mathematics that has become increasingly important in recent decades, in part due to the advent of computers, and in part because of the recent ubiquity of large discrete (social, biological, ecological etc.) networks.
Discrete mathematics has many real-world applications in areas such as logistics, engineering, cryptography, computer algorithms, computer vision and relational databases. Applications vary from finding an optimal railway schedule, securing your privacy in WhatsApp, or protecting your data on a memory device against physical damage.
