CS 5820 - Introduction to Analysis of Algorithms


     
Fall, Spring, Summer. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Co-meets with CS 4820 .

Fall: A. van Zuylen; Spring: E. Chattopadhyay; Summer: Staff.

Develops techniques used in the design and analysis of algorithms, with an emphasis on problems arising in computing applications. Example applications are drawn from systems and networks, artificial intelligence, computer vision, data mining, and computational biology. This course covers four major algorithm design techniques (greedy algorithms, divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming, and network flow), undecidability and NP-completeness, and algorithmic techniques for intractable problems (including identification of structured special cases, approximation algorithms, local search heuristics, and online algorithms).
