CS3510 Algorithms

Spring 2023 9:30-10:45AM Instructional Center 103

Course Information

Welcome to introductory algorithms. We have four main sections.

We will follow the book Algorithms by Dasgupta, Papadimitriou, and Vazirani but there are other excellent books:

I may occasionally pull from these books. I recommend you follow and read the DPV book.




This is subject to change as I realize what takes more or less time.

Statement of Intent for Classroom Inclusivity

As a member of the Georgia Tech community, I am committed to creating a learning environment in which all of my students feel safe and included. Because we are individuals with varying needs, I am reliant on your feedback to achieve this goal. To that end, I invite you to enter into dialogue with me about the things I can stop, start, and continue doing to make my classroom an environment in which every student feels valued and can engage actively in our learning community.
