2003 Programming Challenges Audio

At its best, computer science is an exciting blend of programming, mathematics, and problem solving. This course will introduce an interesting variety of subjects in programming, algorithms, and discrete mathematics though puzzles and problems which have appeared in the International ACM Programming Contest and similar venues.

These audio lectures are derived from my course Programming Challenges taught at Stony Brook and based on the book Programming Challenges: The Programming Contest Training Manual by Steven S. Skiena and Miguel A. Revilla, Springer-Verlag, New York, 2003.

Full lecture video from the 2009 version of the course is now available online! You probably want that instead of the page you are looking at.
