Catalog
Description
CS 410: An advanced,
indepth study of the design and analysis of algorithms. 'Topics include models
of computation, sorting, data structures, graph algorithms, matrix
multiplication, fast Fourier transforms, polynomial arithmetic, pattern
matching, and NPcomplete problems.
CS 584: An
advanced indepth study of the design and analysis of algorithms. Topics
include models of computation, sorting, data structures, graph algorithms,
matrix multiplication, fast Fourier transform, polynomial arithmetic, pattern
matching, and NPcomplete problems.
Prerequisite: CS
350 or equivalent
Textbooks
REQUIRED:
Introduction to
Algorithms, 3^{rd} Edition.
By Cormen, Leiserson, Rivest & Stein, McGraw Hill, 2009, ISBN
9780262033848.
Reading
It is okay to do the
reading after the lecture where the material is covered, but you should
certainly complete it before the next week’s quiz.
Grading
Homework: There are 5 homeworks,
each worth 6%. So homeworks are 30% of
your grade. Homeworks are to be done individually.
Assignments are given out on THURSDAY and are due the following THURSDAY.
Make sure your homework is legible. You may seek help from the instructor and
on the course mailing list, but otherwise work independently.
Quizzes: There are 8 quizzes, each worth 2%, but I drop your lowest quiz grade, so the
quizzes are worth 14% of your grade. A quiz is given on most
TUESDAYs. Each quiz covers material from the preceding week, including
both lecture and reading material. There are NO MAKEUPS FOR
QUIZZES. Quizzes will be closed book.
Projects: There will be two projects,
involving programming an algorithm, experimenting with it, and a write up.
Projects can be done individually, or in teams of two or three students. Each
project is worth 8%, so they are worth 16% of your grade in total.
Exams: There is a first exam (20%)
that covers the 1^{st} half of the class material, and a second exam
(20%) during finals week that covers the 2^{nd} half of class
material. Exams will be open book and notes.
Graduate Students
(CS584) will
have additional or different questions on homework assignments, projects and
exams (but not quizzes).
Information
Policies
Students are responsible for anything
that transpires during a class  therefore if you're not in a class, you should get notes
from someone else (not the instructor).
Homework projects are due at the
beginning of the class period.
Late homework and projects will not be
accepted without prior approval from me. Lack of prior
approval is an automatic 50% off, or 0% if that assignment has been discussed
in class.
Requests for regrading must be submitted to me in writing
within one week of the time the graded assignment was made available for
pickup. You must be specific in saying why you feel your answer was
incorrectly graded or deserves additional credit.
Makeup exams will not be given except in cases of severe medical or
family emergencies. If an emergency arises and you are going to miss an
exam, contact me BEFORE the exam to arrange for a special circumstance.
Students with disabilities who are in need of academic
accommodations should contact me as soon as possible to arrange needed
supports. Students are also encouraged to contact the Disability Resource
Center (DRC) for additional information on support services and available
accommodations at 503/7254240 or 503 7254150.
Academic
Integrity
[Excerpt from the 20102011 PSU Catalog, page 34]
The policies of the University governing the rights, freedoms,
responsibilities and conduct of students are set forth in the Portland State
University Code of Student Conduct and Responsibility which has been issued by
the president under authority of the Administrative Rules of the Oregon State
Board of Higher Education. Students may consult these documents by visiting our
website at: http://www.pdx.edu/dos/codeofconduct.
Observance of these rules, policies, and procedures helps the University to
operate in a climate of free inquiry and expression and assists it in
protecting its academic environment and educational purpose.
Academic honesty: The policy governing academic honesty is
part of the Code of Student Conduct and Responsibility. Academic honesty is a
cornerstone of any meaningful education and a reflection of each student's
maturity and integrity. The Code of Student Conduct and Responsibility, which
applies to all students, prohibits all forms of academic cheating, fraud, and
dishonesty. These acts include, but are not limited to: plagiarism, buying and
selling of course assignments and research papers, performing academic
assignments (including tests and examinations) for other persons, unauthorized
disclosure and receipt of academic information, and other practices commonly
understood to be academically dishonest.
