Course objectives
The course presents basic data structures and algorithms. Students should correctly apply the basic data structures and algorithms as well as apply the algorithm design and analysis techniques when designing new algorithms. Students implement their algorithms in programming language Python.
Learning outcomes
After enrolling the course students are able to:
- actively use basic sorting algorithms and graph algorithms,
- actively design simple algorithms,
- actively used basic static and dynamic data structures,
- employ time complexity and correctness of algorithms,
- implement algorithms in the selected programming language (Python).
  • Basic analysis of algorithms. The 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.
  • Fundamental data structures. Lists, queues. Representation of sets, hash tables. Binary heaps. Binary search trees.
  • Sorting algorithms. Quicksort, Mergesort, Heapsort.
  • Graphs and their representation. Graph search. Depth-first traversal and Breadth-first traversal, applications.
