5 Hon Wai Leong, NUS (CS6234, Spring 2009) Page 5 Copyright © 2009 by Leong Hon Wai We will not cover  Data Structures  Trees, Priority-Queues, etc  Basic algorithm design paradigms  Divide-and-Conquer, Greedy, DP, Std Graph Alg,  Amortized complexity  Basic NP-Completeness  NP, reduction, NP-Completeness proofs Take CS5206 instead!

6 Hon Wai Leong, NUS (CS6234, Spring 2009) Page 6 Copyright © 2009 by Leong Hon Wai  About class organization…  (adapted from similar slides by OoiWT)

7 Hon Wai Leong, NUS (CS6234, Spring 2009) Page 7 Copyright © 2009 by Leong Hon Wai Philosophy  Students are expected to be  Mature  Independent  Resourceful  What you learn is (should be) more important than your grade

8 Hon Wai Leong, NUS (CS6234, Spring 2009) Page 8 Copyright © 2009 by Leong Hon Wai Please don’t ask …  “Is this equation important?”  “Is this equation examinable?”  “Do I have to memorize this algorithm?”

9 Hon Wai Leong, NUS (CS6234, Spring 2009) Page 9 Copyright © 2009 by Leong Hon Wai Please do ask …  “What is the effect of changing k in the equation?”  “Why did the author define this quantity in his algorithm?”  “Is there another way of computing this quantity?”  “Can this algorithm be applied to other problems that I have seen before?”

10 Hon Wai Leong, NUS (CS6234, Spring 2009) Page 10 Copyright © 2009 by Leong Hon Wai Academic Honesty  No copying among students  No copying from published work ZERO TOLERENCE to Plagiarism

11 Hon Wai Leong, NUS (CS6234, Spring 2009) Page 11 Copyright © 2009 by Leong Hon Wai Discussion?  Strongly encouraged …  but  must acknowledge all contributions  write up solutions independently

12 Hon Wai Leong, NUS (CS6234, Spring 2009) Page 12 Copyright © 2009 by Leong Hon Wai Thank you. Q & A
