Prerequisites
The students should comprehend the basic notions (algorithm, computation, data structure) on elementary level. Ability to read simple algorithms written in functional and imperative style is beneficial.
Course Enrolment Limitations

Course objectives
The course presents basic techniques of the analysis of algorithms, data structures, and operations. It is aimed at proving the correctness of algorithms and their efficiency. Basic algorithmic concepts and constructs are presented without any direct binding to a concrete programming language and without requirements of an immediate program implementation. The goal is to make the students know how to work with the algorithms themselves without any implementation details. It enables to present a broad scope of techniques used in functional, imperative or object-oriented languages.
Syllabus
  • Basic analysis of algorithms: Correctness of algorithms, input and output conditions, partial correctness, convergence, verification.
  • Length of computation, algorithm complexity, problem complexity. Asymptotical analysis of time and space complexity, growth of functions, application of recursive relations in algorithm analysis.
  • Fundamental data structures: Lists, pushdown stacks, queues. Binary search trees, balanced trees, representation of sets.
  • Sorting algorithms: quicksort, mergesort, heapsort, lower bound for time complexity of sorting.
  • Basic graph structures: Representation of graphs. Depth-first traversal, topological sort, strongly connected components. Breath-first traversal, Dijkstra's algorithm. Minimum Spanning Trees.
