Welcome to CSE 311 (Winter 2011)

Rajesh Rao (Instructor)


Jason Ganzhorn and Michael Ayzenberg (TAs)

MWF 1:30-2:20 in EEB 037

In this course, we will explore a smorgasbord of concepts that are fundamental to computing. We will delve into various facets of logic, set theory, induction, and algebraic structures, with an eye towards applications in computer science. We will study abstract models of computation and also briefly visit the dreaded world of uncomputable problems. The emphasis will be on developing a thorough mathematical understanding of these concepts and being able to think rigorously and analytically about computing problems.
(Catalog Description. Prerequisites: CSE 143; either MATH 126 or MATH 136. Credits: 4).
