IB Physics

Introduction to Computing

David J.C. MacKay

This is a new course in 2007-8.

This page (http://www.inference.phy.cam.ac.uk/teaching/comput/C++/, also known as http://tinyurl.com/2uffap) will be the permanent home page for this course.

From here, the most useful places to go are

First term Second term

If you are finding the lab sessions hard, it is ok to do just two of the three exercises during the three weeks of this course.
Q: What are the submission deadlines for the exercises in this course?
A: Lab sessions with demonstrators end on Wed 13 Feb. Please aim to do at least 2 things by Friday 15 Feb. The final deadline (for at least 2 things) is Friday 22 Feb.
PLEASE DO NOT PUT ENORMOUS FILES IN THE COURSE PIGEONHOLE. Just put one or two .cc files, and maybe a README.txt - thanks.

As in October 2007, the planned 'laboratory sessions' in the PWF are at these times in weeks 2, 3, and 4:

A: Thursday 11am-1pm
B: Thursday 2-4pm
E: Friday 2-4pm
C: Tuesday 11am-1pm
D: Tuesday 2-4pm
These are the times at which help will be provided by the department. So if you anticipate needing any help learning C++, come to one of these sessions every week.
