In mathematics, a generating function is a way of encoding an infinite sequence of numbers (a n) by treating them as the coefficients of a formal power series.This series is called the generating function of the sequence. 0000081286 00000 n CSE 303: Discrete Mathematics Instructor Dr. Rudra Mohan Tripathy Generating Functions Topics 1. 0000022932 00000 n There is an extremely powerful tool in discrete mathematics used to manipulate sequences called the generating function. Roughly speaking, generating functions transform problems about se-quences into problems about functions. 6 ADVANCED DISCRETE MATHEMATICS is not a statement because for some values of x and y the sentence is true whereas for other values of x and y it is false.
