This collection represents a series of “Technical Reports” produced by members of the Department of Computer Science (formerly the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science) since 1986. They include material deemed by the faculty to be worthy of public release; in some cases, Technical Reports were later revised and published in the archival literature. Prior to September 2020, the series was also a venue for release of some PhD dissertations, MS theses, and undergraduate honors theses.

Prior to the year 2000, reports were numbered in the form PCS-TRyy-nnn, where yy was the 2-digit year (19yy), and nnn was a sequence number. “PCS” stood for “paper in computer science”; for the earliest reports, the pdf contains a scan of the original paper document or a distillation of the original Postscript file. In rare cases, the first three letters (“PCS”) was occasionally “DCS”, for a diskette, or “TCS" for a tape; most of these have been transferred to archive files and made available here.

Since the year 2000, new reports have been numbered in the form TRyyyy-nnn, with sequence number nnn continuous across years. In 2021 we expect the number format to expand to TRyyyy-nnnn, when the sequence number exceeds 999.
