  Analysis and Design of Algorithms Learning Schedule
Pre-requisites: Fundamental of C 3 0 0 3



This course provides elementary introduction to algorithm design and analysis. It includes the topic: mathematics foundation, divided-and-conquer, dynamic programming, greedy method, NP-completeness complexity, approximation algorithm, random-ized algorithm, etc. At the end of this course student should be able to understand the concepts and skills of algorithm design, Implemental some well-known algorithms and analyze the performance of algorithms.


The objective of this course is to learn:

  1. Existing algorithm and develop efficient algorithms for simple computational tasks.
  2. Reasoning about the correctness of the algorithm
  3. Behaviours of algorithms and the notion of tractable and intractable problems.


At the end of the course student will be able to:

  1. Analyze algorithms and determine efficiency of algorithm.
  2. Understand advanced abstract data type (ADT), data structures and their implementations
  3. Design algorithms using the brute force, greedy, divide and conquer, branch and bound etc. methodologies.
  4. Prove problems of P, NP, or NP-Complete.
  5. Develop and implement learned/new algorithm using appropriate techniques to solve problems.
