Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

Introduction to a variety of practical and important data structures and methods for implementation and for experimental and analytical evaluation. Topics include: stacks, queues and lists; search trees; hash tables and algorithms; efficient sorting; object-oriented programming; time and space efficiency analysis; and experimental evaluation. Quantitative.

COURSE DETAILS:

We will explore methods of data and program organization that can help in developing elegant and efficient programmings. Primary topics are abstract data types (ADTs) to help manage the complexity of programs, and data structures to support efficient algorithms. We will study the specification, analysis, implementation (in C++), experimental evaluation, and application of fundamental ADTs and data structures. We will also study fundamental searching and sorting algorithms.

Topics

  • Abstract data types (abstraction, encapsulation, information hiding).
  • Data structures: arrays, lists, stacks, queues, trees, heaps, sets, search trees, hash tables.
  • Algorithms: searching and sorting; correctness and efficiency.
  • Programming: object-oriented programming for ADT re-use; efficient implementation.

Grading

NOTES:

Grading will be based on assignments, term tests, and a final exam. Details will be provided in the first week of classes. Students must attain an overall passing grade on the programming portions of assignments in order to obtain a clear pass (C- or better).

Students must attain an overall passing grade on the weighted average of exams in the course in order to obtain a clear pass (C- or better).

Registrar Notes:

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
