6.004 Computation Structures

Class Info

Introduces architecture of digital systems, emphasizing structural principles common to a wide range of technologies. Multilevel implementation strategies; definition of new primitives (e.g., gates, instructions, procedures, and processes) and their mechanization using lower-level elements. Analysis of potential concurrency; precedence constraints and performance measures; pipelined and multidimensional systems. Instruction set design issues; architectural support for contemporary software structures.

This class has no prerequisites.

6.004 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by C. J. Terman, D. Sanchez and S. Z. Hanono Wachman.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 32-123.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

6.005 Elements of Software Construction

Class Info

Introduces fundamental principles and techniques of software development, i.e., how to write software that is safe from bugs, easy to understand, and ready for change. Topics include specifications and invariants; testing, test-case generation, and coverage; abstract data types and representation independence; design patterns for object-oriented programming; concurrent programming, including message passing and shared concurrency, and defending against races and deadlock; and functional programming with immutable data and higher-order functions. Includes weekly programming exercises and larger group programming projects. 12 Engineering Design Points.

This class has 6.01, and 6.042 as prerequisites.

6.005 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by D. N. Jackson and R. C. Miller.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

6.006 Introduction to Algorithms

Class Info

Introduction to mathematical modeling of computational problems, as well as common algorithms, algorithmic paradigms, and data structures used to solve these problems. Emphasizes the relationship between algorithms and programming, and introduces basic performance measures and analysis techniques for these problems.

This class has 6.042, and 6.0001 as prerequisites. This class has 6.009 as a corequisite.

6.006 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by S. Devadas.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 26-100.
