*CS 530* is the central graduate algorithms course in the
computer science curriculum. It serves as the a core graduate theory
course. It is the successor to the undergraduate
algorithms course, CS 330, and has this course as a prerequisite.
In CS 530 students will learn fundamental algorithm design and
algorithm analysis at the graduate level.
The following list of pointers provides access to information
concerning the course, the students and the instructors.
