  • Course Description:
    Data structures is an essential area of study for computer scientists and for anyone who will ever undertake any serious programming task. This course deals with the fundamentals of organizing and manipulating data efficiently using clean conceptual models. Students study many of the important conceptual data types, their realization through implementation, and analysis of their efficiency. Implementations in this course are carried out in the C (or C++) language, but the principles are more generally applicable to most modern programming environments. Students should have at least one semester of programming experience with C language.

    • Attendance - one class absence will result in the deduction of two points out of 100 points. Five absences will not result in ten points deduction, but "failure" (i.e., grade 'F') in this course.
    • Exam - there will be midterm exam and final exam for the evaluation of the knowledge learned from the class.
    • Homework - much intensive homework will be set. Any cheating (or copying) will result in grade 'F'.
