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. Who should take this course?
