A single algorithmic improvement can have a greater impact on our ability to solve a problem than ten years of incremental improvements in CPU speed. We study techniques for designing and analyzing algorithms. Typical problem areas addressed include numerical computing, hashing, searching, dynamic programming, graph algorithms, network flow, and string parsing and matching.
CS16, CS18 or CS19 and one of CS22 or CS45
Lectures will be held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1:00 to 1:50 PM, in the Metcalf Auditorium.
We recommend using ShareLatex for collaboration on problem sets.
