Discrete Mathematics Chapter 5 Counting

§5.1 The Basics of counting
 A counting problem: (Example 15) Each user on a computer system has a password, which is six to eight characters long, where each characters is an uppercase letter or a digit. Each password must contain at least one digit. How many possible passwords are there?  This section introduces a variety of other counting problems the basic techniques of counting.

Basic counting principles
 The sum rule: If a first task can be done in n1 ways and a second task in n2 ways, and if these tasks cannot be done at the same time. then there are n1+n2 ways to do either task. Example 11 Suppose that either a member of faculty or a student is chosen as a representative to a university committee. How many different choices are there for this representative if there are 37 members of the faculty and 83 students? n1 n2 n1 + n2 ways

23, 15 and 19 possible projects respectively.
Example A student can choose a computer project from one of three lists. The three lists contain 23, 15 and 19 possible projects respectively. How many possible projects are there to choose from? Sol: =57 projects.  The product rule: Suppose that a procedure can be broken down into two tasks. If there are n1 ways to do the first task and n2 ways to do the second task after the first task has been done, then there are n1 n2 ways to do the procedure. n1 n2 n1 × n2 ways

Example 2 The chair of an auditorium (大礼堂) is
to be labeled with a letter and a positive integer 　not exceeding 100. What is the largest number of 　chairs that can be labeled differently? Sol: 26 × 100 = ways to label chairs. letter Example 4 How many different bit strings are there of length seven? Sol:　1　2　 3　 4　 5　 6 　7 □ □ □ □ □ □ □ ↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ 0,1 0,1 0, ,1 → 27 种

Example 6 How many functions are there from a
How many different license plates (车牌) are available if each plate contains a sequence of 3 letters followed by 3 digits ? Sol: □ □ □ □ □ □ →263．103 letter digit Example 6 How many functions are there from a set with m elements to one with n elements? Sol: f(a1)=? 可以是b1～ bn, 共 n种 f(a2)=? 可以是b1～ bn, 共 n种 f(am)=? 可以是b1～ bn, 共 n种 ∴nm a1 a2 am b1 b2 bn f

Example 7 How many one-to-one functions are there
from a set with m elements to one with n element? (m  n) Sol: f(a1) = ? 可以是b1～ bn, 共 n 种 f(a2) = ? 可以是b1～ bn, 但不能= f(a1), 共 n-1 种 f(a3) = ? 可以是b1～ bn, 但不能= f(a1), 也不能=f(a2), 共 n-2 种 f(am) = ? 不可=f(a1), f(a2), ... , f(am-1), 故共n-(m-1)种 ∴共 n．(n-1)．(n-2)．...．(n-m+1)种 1-1 function #

Example 15 Each user on a computer system has a password which is 6 to 8 characters long, where each character is an uppercase letter or a digit. Each password must contain at least one digit. How many possible passwords are there? Sol: Pi : # of possible passwords of length i , i=6,7,8 P6 = P7 = P8 = ∴ P6 + P7 + P8 = 种

Example 14 In a version of Basic, the name of a variable is a string of one or two alphanumeric characters, where uppercase and lowercase letters are not distinguished. Moreover, a variable name must begin with a letter and must be different from the five strings of two characters that are reserved for programming use. How many different variable names are there in this version of Basic? Sol: Let Vi be the number of variable names of length i. V1 =26 V2 =26．36 – 5 ∴ ．36 – 5 different names.

※ The Inclusion-Exclusion Principle (排容原理)
A B Example How many bit strings of length eight either start with a 1 bit or end with the two bits 00 ? Sol: １ ２ ３ ４ ５ ６ ７ ８ □ □ □ □ □ □ □ □ ↑ ↑ ① 1 0,1 0, → 共27种 ② 　 → 共26种 ③ → 共25种  种

※ Tree Diagrams Example How many bit strings of length four do not have two consecutive 1s ? Sol: Exercise: 11, 17, 23, 27, 38, 39, 47, 53 1 (0000) (0001) (0010) (0100) (0101) (1000) (1001) (1010) ∴ 8 bit strings 1 bit 3 1 1 bit 1

Ex 38. How many subsets of a set with 100 elements
have more than one element ? Sol: Ex A palindrome (回文) is a string whose reversal is identical to the string. How many bit strings of length n are palindromes ? ( abcdcba 是回文, abcd 不是 ) Sol: If a1a2 ... an is a palindrome, then a1=an, a2=an-1, a3=an-2, … Thm. 4 of §4.3 空集合及 只有1个元素的集合 不放 不放 不放

§5.2 The Pigeonhole Principle (鸽笼原理)
Theorem 1 (The Pigeonhole Principle) If k+1 or more objects are placed into k boxes, then there is at least one box containing two or more of the objects. Proof Suppose that none of the k boxes contains more than one object. Then the total number of objects would be at most k. This is a contradiction. Example Among any 367 people, there must be at least two with the same birthday, because there are only 366 possible birthdays.

Example 2 In any group of 27 English words, there must be at least two that begin with the same letter. Example 3 How many students must be in a class to guarantee that at least two students receive the same score on the final exam ? (0~100 points) Sol: (101+1) Theorem 2. (The generalized pigeon hole principle) If N objects are placed into k boxes, then there is at least one box containing at least objects. e.g. 21 objects, 10 boxes  there must be one box containing at least objects.

Example 5 Among 100 people there are at least
who were born in the same month. ( 100 objects, boxes )

Def. Suppose that is a sequence of numbers.
A subsequence of this sequence is a sequence of the form where e.g sequence: 8, 11, 9, 1, 4, 6, 12, 10, 5, 7 subsequence: 8, 9, () 9, 11, 4, 6 () Def. A sequence is called increasing (递增) if A sequence is called decreasing (递减) if A sequence is called strictly increasing (严格递增) if A sequence is called strictly decreasing (严格递减) if

(跳过) Theorem 3. Every sequence of n2+1 distinct real numbers contains a subsequence of length n+1 that is either strictly increasing or strictly decreasing. Example The sequence 8, 11, 9, 1, 4, 6, 12, 10, 5, 7 contains 10=32+1 terms (i.e., n=3). There is a strictly increasing subsequence of length four, namely, 1, 4, 5, 7. There is also a decreasing subsequence of length 4, namely, 11, 9, 6, 5. Exercise Construct a sequence of 16 positive integers that has no increasing or decreasing subsequence of 5 terms. Sol: Exercise: 5, 13, 15, 31

§5.3 Permutations(排列) and Combinations(组合)
Def. A permutation of a set of distinct objects is an ordered arrangement of these objects. An ordered arrangement of r elements of a set is called an r-permutation. Example 2. Let S = {1, 2, 3}. The arrangement 3,1,2 is a permutation of S. The arrangement 3,2 is a 2-permutation of S. Theorem The number of r-permutation of a set with n distinct elements is 位置： … r 　　　□ □ □ … □ 放法：

Example 4. How many different ways are there to select
a first-prize winner (第一名), a second-prize winner, and a third-prize winner from 100 different people who have entered a contest ? Sol: Example 6. Suppose that a saleswoman has to visit 8 different cities. She must begin her trip in a specified city, but she can visit the other cities in any order she wishes. How many possible orders can the saleswoman use when visiting these cities ?

Def. An r-combination of elements of a set is an
unordered selection of r elements from the set. Example 9 Let S be the set {1, 2, 3, 4} Then {1, 3, 4} is a 3-combination from S. Theorem 2 The number of r-combinations of a set with n elements, where n is a positive integer and r is an integer with , equals pf : 称为 binomial coefficient

Example 10. We see that C(4,2)=6, since the
2-combinations of {a,b,c,d} are the six subsets {a,b}, {a,c}, {a,d}, {b,c}, {b,d} and {c,d} Corollary 2. Let n and r be nonnegative integers with r  n. Then C(n,r) = C(n,n-r) pf : From Thm 2. 组合意义：选 r 个拿走,相当于是选 n - r 个留下.

Suppose there are 9 faculty members in the math department and 11 in the computer science department. How many ways are there to select a committee if the committee is to consist of 3 faculty members from the math department and 4 from the computer science department? Sol: Exercise: 3, 11, 13, 21, 33, 34.

§5.4 Binomial Coefficients (二项式系数)
Example 1. 要产生 xy2 项时， 需从三个括号中选两个括号提供 y，剩下一个则提供 x (注意：同一个括号中的 x 跟 y 不可能相乘) ∴共有 种不同来源的 xy2  xy2 的系数 = Theorem (The Binomial Theorem, 二项式定理) Let x,y be variables, and let n be a positive integer, then

Example 4. What is the coefficient of x12y13 in
the expansion of ? Sol: Cor Let n be a positive integer. Then pf : By Thm 1, let x = y = 1 Cor Let n be a positive integer. Then pf : by Thm 1. (1-1)n = 0

Ex 33. Here we will count the number of paths
between the origin (0,0) and point (m,n) such that each path is made up of a series of steps, where each step is a move one unit to the right or a more one unit upward. (5,3) (0,0) Each path can be represented by a bit string consisting of m 0s and n 1s. (→) (↑) Red path对应的字符串: There are paths of the desired type. Exercise: 7, 21, 28
