ICS 621 Analysis of Algorithms (Spring 2014 CRN 88618)

General Information


Grading (Tentative)

Class participation grades will be based on presentation of homework problems.

Homework Assignments will be assigned on the Wednesday of each week and are due the following Wednesday at 2359 hours in hardcopy. The homework assignments must be typeset in LaTeX with the homework number and your name displayed clearly on the front page. Please use one of the algorithms latex package (see wikibook) to typeset pseudocode (algorithmic.sty is recommended).
