discrete mathematics broadly,
with an emphasis on diverse mathematical methods, such as

    Geometric Methods
    Algorithmic Methods
    Graph Methods
    Topological Methods
    Enumeration Methods
    Probabilistic Methods.

The MDS program is a joint initiative of scientists at the three major  
Berlin universities,

    Freie Universität Berlin (FU),
    Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU), and

regular predoc programs, etc. - all this in a very lively Berlin  
discrete mathematics context,
which also includes the DFG Research Center MATHEON (http://www.matheon.de
