Course objectives
The lecture provides basic information about graphs and graph algorithms, used in the computer networks. Special emphasis is taken to present planning and scheduling as specific graph problems, as well as the load distribution problem in distributed systems.
Graduate will be able to explain several graph algorithms and their use in computer systems and networks.
Graduate will be able to analyze particular problem and transform it into appropriate graph representation.
Graduate will be further able to analyze and solve simple scheduling and planning problems.
Graduate will be able to solve simple graph problems.
Graduate will be able to interpret computer network behavior in terms of graph theory.
