Stein, Introduction to Algorithms , McGraw-Hill, New York, NY, Second Edition, 2001. A list of known errata and bugs can be accessed from COURSE OUTLINE. This course will cover the theoretical aspects of algorithm design and analysis. We will study general techniques for algorithm design such as divide-and-conquer, greedy and dynamic programming, as well as randomized algorithms and amortized analysis, and we will study the correctness and efficiency of important data structures and algorithms, with special emphasis on graph algorithms. We will also have a brief introduction to the theory of NP-completeness, and we will study the design of approximation algorithms for NP-hard problems. There will be no programming project in this course.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
