algorithms, binary arithmetic, recursion, methods of proofs, and
proofs of program correctness are studied.
      COT 3101 Discrete Structures II (3) Prereq: COT 3100.
Sequel to COT 3100. Covers counting techniques, relations,
graphs, and trees and the application of these topics to computer
science.
      COT 4210 Foundations of Computer Science (3) Prereq:
COP 3530. Theoretical foundations of computer science including
regular expressions; regular, context-free, and context sensitive
grammars; finite and pushdown automata; Turing machines; and
unsolvability.
      COT 4400 Design and Analysis of Algorithms (3) Prereq:
COP 3530. Problem solving strategies, principles of algorithm
design, metrics for evaluating designs, space and time complexity,
iterative and recursive algorithms, structured and object-oriented
paradigms.

Information Systems Management
     ISM 4400 Decision Support Systems (3) Prereq: CIS 3040.
The design, development, implementation, management, and use of
decision support systems including concepts of data management,
modeling decision support systems, and decision-making.
