Course objectives
The main objectives of the course is to acquaint students with the concepts, ideas, methods, and results fundamental to computer science. It is not specifically about computer technology, nor is it about computer programming. At the end of the course students should understand basics of theoretical computer science, algorithmics, and computational complexity.
  • Algorithmic problem and the algorithm that solves it. The structure of algorithms, the data they manipulate, their correctness and efficiency (mainly time efficiency). Inherent limitations of effectively executable algorithms, inefficiency and intractability. Complexity classes, the P vs NP problem. Noncomputability and undecidability.
