COMP4300/8300 2017: Lectures

The scheduling below should be regarded as tentative for more than 2 weeks in advance. Links to the lecture slides should be available by the COB on the previous day. If you wish to see the material earlier, see the corresponding slides on the 2015 lectures

The PDFs of the slides have embedded hyperlinks to locally referenced files (e.g. source files) and web links (in dark blue - note these only work on the 1-up slides). Other typesetting conventions include:

  • keywords or phrases that have special meaning in computer systems in black, especially when first used
  • mathematical quantities and output also in black
  • code uses a fixed font and has the usual syntax highlighting
