Learning outcomes

The student gets a clear and well-founded understanding of algorithm design frameworks and techniques. He will know the methods for proofing the correctness and time complexity of the algorithms. He will also become familiar with the basic theory of computationally hard problems on intuitive and exact levels.


The topics include algorithm design principles (greedy, divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming, network-flow) and an introduction to the general complexity theory (complexity classes, reductions, NP-complete problems).
