CS 3240 A (CRN: 92355)
Computer Science: Algorithm Design & Analysis
3 Credit Hours
Comprehensive study of algorithms including greedy algorithms, divide and conquer, dynamic programming, graph algorithms and network flow. Computational intractability. Approximation, local search and randomization. Prerequisite: CS 2240. Pre/co-requisites: Recommended: CS 2250; STAT 2430, or STAT 2510.
Prereqs enforced by the system: CS 2240; Colocated with CS 5990 A
We will study broad classes of algorithms including greedy algorithms, divide-and-tackle algorithms, dynamic programming, and network-flow algorithms. Students will learn how to characterize the complexity of algorithms. We will discuss NP and NP completeness and advanced algorithm design methods for hard problems, such as approximation. Students will do written assignments involving proofs and the tracing of algorithms and programming assignments that implement some of the algorithms presented in class. The required text is Algorithm Design by Kleinberg and Tardos (ISBN-10: 0321295358).
There will be two exams, written assignments, and programming assignments (in Java).
Final grades will be assigned based on written and programming assignments, the exams, and course attendance.
