Course Content Course Motivation Mathematical Foundation: Complexity Analysis: Data Structures: List, Stacks, Queues Algorithm: Searching and Trees Sorting and Heaps Graph Algorithms (Depth first Search, Breadth First Search, Topological sort, Shortest path algorithm, Spanning Tree Algorithm) Computability and Complexity
Course Motivation Need to run computer programs efficiently! Computer program: Accepts Input (Data) Performs a Sequence of action with the input Generates Output (Data) Efficient Management of Data (Data Structures) Efficient Sequence of Actions Algorithms
Sequence of actions a ``dumb’’ machine can follow For j=1 to N print j Efficient versus Inefficient algorithm
Design of Algorithms You have a problem to solve Design an efficient algorithm Use good data structures Show that your algorithm works! Prove its correctness Study the efficiency of your algorithm
Formal Study of Algorithms Design of Algorithms Proving Correctness of Algorithms Formal study of efficiency of algorithms Run time Storage required
