LC 207 - Learning Community: Mathematical Experiments in Computer Science

Three Credits
Fall Semester

Computers provide us with tools to explore mathematics in deeper ways than ever before. They allow empirical testing of mathematical conjectures with elusive proofs. Computers enable us to experimentally analyze algorithms whose performance defies theoretical analysis. This LC focuses on the delicate balance between theory and practice in computer science, revealing the dual and sometimes contradictory nature of computer science as both an engineering and a mathematical discipline.

Corequisite(s): Students must also take    and   as part of this Learning Community.
