CSAIL member Professor Gerald Jay Sussman gives the final lecture of 6.001, which is being retired from the MIT curriculum after the Fall 2007 term. Sussman and Professor Hal Abelson developed the course in 1980; it proved to be one of the most influential undergraduate subjects at MIT. Courses based on the 6.001 textbook have been offered at many other universities around the world.
