Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to describe

  • fundamental algorithms and data structues,
  • methods to evaluate and analize algorithms, and
  • a systematic approach to develop algorithms.

Furthermore, students are able to

  • develop algorithms in an abstract way with efficienty in mind,
  • use theoretically founded methods to analyze algorithms, and
  • apply the knowledge of fundamental algorithms and data structutes.

In addition, stundents are able to develop and present efficient approaches self-organized and on their own responsibility.

Subject of course

  • Analysis of algorithms, complexity, notations
  • Graph algorithms
  • Algorithm paradigms like greedy or divide-and-conquer
  • Searching, binary search trees, balanced search trees, hashing
  • Sorting algorithms
  • Poly-time reductions
  • Branch-and-Bound
  • Approximation algorithms
  • Heuristics and local search
  • Dynamic programming
  • Further topics (e.g. text search, randomization, geometric algorithms)

 

Teaching methods

Learning activities comprise lectures, assignments in small groups, programming exercises, as well as two written exams (and one make-up test).

We start the semester in presence (lectures, exercise groups, exams). If needed, we will send a TUWEL-announcement that we (partially) switch to distance learning.

Mode of examination

Immanent

Additional information

This course is scheduled for the second semester.

The TUWEL-course is available from 01.03.2023. There will be an entry-level test in TUWEL starting on 01.03.2022 (20:00). This test can be completed until 17.03.2023 (20:00). Registration to one of the exercise groups requires a positiv result for the entry-level test and starts on 20.03.2023 (20:00).

Detailed course information will be presented in a preliminary discussion in the first lecture on 01.03.2023 at 16:00 (c.t.) in AudiMax GM1. Furthermore, all informations are available in the corresponding TUWEL course.
