Official Description

Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in computer science intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: 1 to 4 undergraduate hours. 1 to 4 graduate hours.

Section Description

Topic: Program Optimization: Prerequisites: CS 232 and CS 225. The course will cover techniques to improve program execution speed and energy consumption. The objective is to prepare students to program future systems where performance improvements will not be, as it was in the past, the direct result of faster clock rates, but must instead be laboriously obtained by applying programming techniques that effectively exploit parallelism and locality. This section is for graduate students only.
