## Computer Science and IT | ## Computer Science and IT (general) - Open Courseware (OCW)## Introduction to ComputersWikiversityintroduction for non-computer science students, gentler, lighter survey course without delving too much into technical details, also examines computers from the perspective on how they influence society ## Information and EntropyMIT (US), OpenCoursewareultimate limits to communication and computation, emphasis on physical nature of information and information processing: information and computation, digital signals, codes and compression, applications (biological representations of information, logic circuits, computer architectures, and algorithmic information, noise, probability, error correction, reversible and irreversible operations, physics of computation, quantum computation), concept of entropy applied to channel capacity and second law of thermodynamics ## Design and Analysis of AlgorithmsYork University (CA)Iterative Algorithms & Loop Invariants, Recursion, Optimization Problems, slides (Iterative Technique, Recursion, Searching Graphs, Network Flows, Greedy Algorithms, Recursive Back Tracking and Dynamic Programming, NP-Completeness, Lower Bounds & Models, Review) ## ******* Candy Button Paper and Turing Machines ******xkcd webcomic:) ## CSC MediaWaterloo University (CA), Computer Science Club (CSC)variety of recordings of past CSC Talks - some large files ## Stanford CS Education LibraryStanford University (US)collects education CS material from courses and distributes them for free: Pointers and Memory, Lists & Trees, Languages, Unix, Tetris, Beta Materials ## Introduction to AlgorithmsMIT (US), OpenCourseWaretechniques for design & analysis of efficient algorithms emphasizing methods useful in practice, sorting; search trees, heaps & hashing, divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming, amortized analysis, graph algorithms, shortest paths, network flow, computational geometry, number-theoretic algorithms, polynomial & matrix calculations, caching, & parallel computing, readings, quizzes & solutions ## Skiena's Algorithms LecturesStony Brook University (US)Introduction to Algorithms, Asymptotic Notation, Modeling / Logarithms, Elementary Data Structures, Trees, Sorting, Graph Data Structures, Breadth/Depth-First Search, Topological Sort / Connectivity, Minimum Spanning Trees, Shortest Path, All-Pairs Shortest Paths, Combinatorial Search, Program optimization, Dynamic Programming, NP-completeness, Reductions, Cook's Theorem, The NP-completeness challenge, Approximation Algorithms, Heuristic Methods ## Introduction to Computer Science and ProgrammingMIT (US), OpenCourseWareunderstanding of the role computation can play in solving problems, small programs that allow useful goals, Pythonâ„¢ programming language: readings ## Interactive Computer Theorem ProvingCalifornia University (US)basic logic and natural deduction, data structures and induction, inductively-defined predicates, proofs as programs, tactics for automation, programming with proofs, beyond primitive recursion, automation, proof by reflection, denotational semantics, reflecting Coq into Coq, Twelf |
