Course objectives
The course expands on the introductory course Algortihm Design I. It presents algorithmic concepts without their direct connection to any particular programming language. The aim is to introduce students into design and analysis of advanced algorithms. The course presents advanced techniques of algorithm analysis and a wide spectrum of strategies together with algorithms built up on these strategies. Students are introduced into new data structures which are displayed in a row with algorithms based on them.
  • Advanced design and analysis techniques: dynamic programming, greedy strategies,backtracking. Amortized analysis.
  • Advanced data structures: binomial and Fibonacci heaps, data structures for disjoint sets.
  • Graph algorithms: Single-Source Shortest Paths (The Bellman-Ford algorithm). All-Pairs Shortest Paths (Shortest paths and matrix multiplication, The Floyd-Warshall algorithm, Johnson's algorithm for sparse graphs). Maximum Flow (The Ford-Fulkerson method, The Push-Relabel method). Maximum bipartite matching.
  • String matching: the naive string-matching algorithm, Karp-Rabin algorithm, string matching with finite automata. The Knuth-Morris-Pratt algorithm.

Teaching methods
Lectures and seminars. Students are required to solve given algorithmical problems.
Assessment methods
The course has a form of a lecture with a seminar. During the term students separately solve sets of algorithmic problems. The course is concluded by the written exam. Student can attend the final exam providing she/he has acquired given number of points from problem sets.
