  • Course Rules
  • The Course Schedule
  • Course Goals
  • Learn data structures and algorithms to solve problems efficiently. The data structures (for well-known ADTs) are: tries, heaps (and their variations), hash tables, height-balanced binary search trees, B-trees, reverse trees (union-find), etc. Basic graph algorithms are introduced. The complexity and performance of the resulting algorithm will be investigated theoretically and empirically. Discussion of sorting algorithms and their complexity, and lower bounds for sorting.

  • News
  • Discussion sessions will be on Wednesdays and the lectures will be on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursday. Discussion sessions start this week (Wednesday June 24, 2015). It is very important that you attend all the Lectures and Discussion Sessions. It is very important that you attend all the Lectures and Discussion Sessions.
