About the course

The course extends and deepens your knowledge about algorithms and their analysis. After the course, you can design algorithms based on techniques such as dynamic programming and greedy algorithms, as well as derive their complexity from recursive equations. List of topics:

  • solving recursive equations that describe the algorithm's complexity
  • dynamic programming
  • greedy algorithms
  • graph algorithms: minimum spanning trees, shortest paths
  • string matching.
