Data Structures

Listed in: Computer Science, as COSC-21



A fundamental problem in computer science is that of organizing data so that it can be used effectively. This course introduces basic data structures and their applications. Major themes are the importance of abstraction in program design and the separation of specification and implementation. Program correctness and algorithm complexity are also considered. Data structures for lists, stacks, queues, trees, sets and graphs are discussed. This course will provide advanced programming experience. Three class hours per week. Requisite: Computer Science 12. First semester. Professor L. McGeoch.
