Section 002 Lectures Tue,Thu 11am-12:20pm, UH 011 face-to-face

Instructor: Alexandra Stefan


This course teaches students how to design, choose, and evaluate appropriate algorithms when designing and implementing software. Students will learn a broad set of algorithms covering different problems, including sorting, search, spanning trees, and network flow. Students will also learn about basic data structures, such as linked lists, stacks, and queues. The course will also teach students basic methods for analyzing algorithmic properties such as time and space complexity.

Textbook not required. Optional: Introduction to Algorithms, by Thomas H. Cormen, Charles E. Leiserson, Ronald E. Rivest, Clifford Stein,3rd edition (CLRS). - NOT required. All the material covered in homework and exams/quizzes will be provided in slides and discussed in lectures.
