Kristen S. Gardner (Section 01)


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, dictionaries, sets, and graphs are discussed. This course will provide advanced programming experience. It is not open to students who have previously taken COSC 201.

Requisite: COSC 111. Spring semester. Professor Gardner.
