John E. Rager (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.
In the fall, this course will be fully accessible online and may also make use of in-person meetings.
Requisite: COSC 112. Fall semester: Professor Rager. Spring semester: Professors Kaplan and Gardner.
