That depends on what you are trying to do.

Discrete math in particular is basically a bunch of math focused on how a computer does math, kind of, so you could look at that. But what really matters is the math of what you are workingon.

Moved to Software Development. There really isn't a Java question here.

Discrete math is a good starting point. It consists of topics like number theory, combinatorics and graph theory, discrete probability, logic, and set theory.

I also have a blog entry- which math courses should I take.
