Overview of the course Introduction to algorithmic concepts design and complexity analysis of algorithms searching sorting graphs geometric, algebraic and parallel algorithms. Key concepts: divide-and-conquer, sorting, dynamic programming, greedy algorithms, graph algorithms, NP-completeness.
Expected outcomes: By the end of the course you should be able to design appropriate algorithms for complex problems and analyze the complexity of algorithms.
