The course

The prerequisite for this course is C or better in CS 310, CS 330, and Math 125. We will study fundamental data structures and algorithms with an emphasis on establishing correctness and analysis of running-time properties of the algorithms. Students should be comfortable doing mathematical proofs.


Topics to be covered include:
