This document is available at http://www.public.asu.edu/~ccolbou/src/551syllabusf15.html

We cover most of chapters 1, 4, 5, 6, and 7, and selected topics from chapters 8, 11, and 13. Some of the topics in chapters 4, 5, and 6 have already been covered in CSE 310, so we focus on the new material in these chapters. We may also cover a few selected topics that are not covered by the textbook.

Below is a tentative schedule of topics, with lecture hours:

Tests and reviews together occupy six further hours.

The grading for the class is as follows:


General Course Information:

Students may discuss homework assignments with their classmates; however all work turned in is expected to be that of the individual. If you have any questions regarding appropriate collaboration please see the instructor. More information is on the primary course web page.
We will follow the text closely, but the emphasis on the tests will be the same as that in the lectures. Hence, although class attendance is not required, it is highly recommended.
