**Discrete math** is very broadly the area of mathematics that deals with discrete objects; that is, objects that be enumerated. Another very broad description is that branches of mathematics considered discrete math are primarily concerned with sets, whereas branches of math known as analysis (such as calculus) are primarily concerned with functions.

Discrete math has applications in many different areas, including cryptography, linear programming, and coding theory.^{[1]}
