Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This is an intermediate-level course on algorithms and data structures. You should already have some basic knowledge of discrete mathematics and algorithms and data structures.

The focus of this course is rather on theory than on practice.

Topics in this course:
- Proof techniques
- Algorithmic strategies: recursion and reduction, dynamic programming, greedy algorithms
- Data structures and algorithms: maximum flow, string and pattern matching, hashing, geometric algorithms

The course will take place in "mixed" mode, i.e., both online and on site. Purely online participation will be possible except for on-site examinations.

Assessment and permitted materials

- short quiz (written) on October 25, 2021: 5 points
