Introduction to Computer Science and Programming. Introduction to Algorithms. Programming Optimization: Techniques, examples and discussion. In the old days, it was pretty easy to understand that writing your programs in assembly would tend to yield higher performing results than writing in higher level languages.
Compilers had solved the problem of "optimization" in too general and simplistic a way, and had no hope of competing with the sly human assembly coder. These days the story is slightly different. Programming Challenges Audio. At its best, computer science is an exciting blend of programming, mathematics, and problem solving.
This course will introduce an interesting variety of subjects in programming, algorithms, and discrete mathematics though puzzles and problems which have appeared in the International ACM Programming Contest and similar venues. These audio lectures are derived from my course Programming Challenges taught at Stony Brook and based on the book Programming Challenges: The Programming Contest Training Manual by Steven S. Skiena and Miguel A.
