Course Description

Algorithms and data structures are two fundamental components of computer programs. This course gives their basic concepts, design principles, techniques, and other important concepts in computer science.


Mid-term and final examinations

Course Goals

The goals of the course is to understand: - mathematical models of computers and concepts of computational complexity, - basic algorithms and data structures, - design principles of algorithms, such as divide-and-conquer method and dynamic programming, - classes of hard problems and solutions to them, and - basic ideas of graph algorithms, approximation algorithms, and online algorithms.
