Launceston, Hobart

Note:

Note: In summer this unit will only have online classes in 2022. All lectures and tutorials will be available online only in summer.

Introduction

This unit extends the students' knowledge and experience of programming. It introduces dynamic data structures, foundational collection abstract data types, and computational algorithms and techniques. Programming is undertaken in Java and C and topics include: references and pointers, memory management, self-referential data structures, abstract data types and their implementation, and an introduction to algorithm complexity.
