Fall 2013: (Large) Algebraic Data Structures (with High Volume Automated Testing)
Algebraic Data Types (ADT's) is the study of data structures without regard to the implementation. For instance, given a stack, S, we all know that pop(push(e,S)) == S, and this abstraction should be true for any implementation. These simple abstractions also give insight and direction to software testing; simple large scale, high volume tests may
