CMP302 Fall 2013: Algorithms

Information

This course will cover basic algorithm analysis and design concepts, in addition to more advanced topics. It will be divided into two tracks:
  1. Classes: will cover more theoretical algorithmic concepts. Topics include: asymptotic analysis, recurrences, divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming, greedy algorithms, sorting, searching, graph algorithms, P, NP, and NP-completeness.
  2. Sections: will be more practical, focusing on programming challenges, especially the ACM ICPC challenge. Will include weekly homework assignments containing problems to be solved like the challenges.

Textbooks

  • Introduction to Algorithms, Third Edition. Cormen, Leiserson, Rivest, and Stein (for classes).
  • Programming Challenges. Skiena and Revilla (for sections).
