Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge of programming in Java and basic knowledge in discrete mathematics and calculus.

Intended learning outcomes

The purpose of the course is to give the student tools to independently be able to construct computer programs that use time and memory in an efficient way. Upon completion of the course the student shall be able to:

  • demonstrate ability to analyze time and space complexity of iterative and simple recursive algorithms.
  • explain and use the most common abstract data types and sorting algorithms.
  • implement the most common abstract data types with different data structures and algorithms.
  • describe established methods for design (and analysis) of algorithms in general.

Course content

  • Basic notions
  • Mathematical foundations for analysis of algorithms
  • Fundamental abstract data types and data structures, such as lists, stacks, queues, search trees, hash tables and graphs
  • Efficiency analysis of algorithms
  • Sorting and searching
  • Algorithm paradigms

Teaching and working methods

The lectures present the theory. The tutorials are devoted to individual work with exercises illustrating the theory. The laboratory assignments concern computer implementation of the techniques presented in the lectures.
