4 Analysis & Design of Algorithms
Algorithm analysis Analysis of resource usage of given algorithms (time , space) Efficient algorithms Algorithms that make an efficient usage of resources Algorithm design Methods for designing efficient algorithms Prof. Amr Goneid, AUC

5 Analysis & Design of Algorithms
Why study this subject? Efficient algorithms lead to efficient programs. Efficient programs sell better. Efficient programs make better use of hardware. Programmers who write efficient programs are preferred. Prof. Amr Goneid, AUC

6 Objectives To gain experience in fundamental techniques used for algorithm analysis. To gain experience in the main methodologies used for the design of efficient algorithms. To study the most important computer algorithms of current practical use. Prof. Amr Goneid, AUC

10 Course Outcomes After completing the CSCE 321, students should be able to: Use big O, omega, and theta notation to give asymptotic upper, lower, and tight bounds on time and space complexity of algorithms. Determine the time and space complexity of simple algorithms. Recognize the difference between mathematical modeling and empirical analysis of algorithms, and the difference between deterministic and randomized algorithms. Deduce recurrence relations that describe the time complexity of recursively defined algorithms and work out their particular and general solutions. Prof. Amr Goneid, AUC

11 Course Outcomes Practice the main algorithm design strategies of Brute Force, Exclude & Conquer, Transform & Conquer, Divide & Conquer, Greedy methods, Dynamic Programming, Backtracking and Branch & Bound and implement examples of each. Identify examples of everyday human behavior that exemplifies the basic concepts of the main design strategies. Implement the most common quadratic and O(N log N) sorting algorithms and perform their complexity analysis. Solve problems using the fundamental graph algorithms including depth-first and breadth-first search, single-source and all-pairs shortest paths, transitive closure, topological sort, and the minimum spanning tree algorithms. Evaluate, select and implement algorithms in programming context. Prof. Amr Goneid, AUC
