Course content

Build and use data structures as: array, queue, stack, list, tree and graphs. Abstract data types. Advanced algorithms for searching, sorting, traversering. Recursion. Complexity for algorithms, efficiency, use of time and memory.

Learning outcome

Knowledge: - Become familiar with, explain, apply and to some extent be able to rewrite some standard algorithms such as sorting, searching and graph handling. - Describe and explain various data structures (arrays/tables, linked lists, queues, stacks, trees and graphs). - Analyze advanced and complex (non-trivial) issues, and finding the algorithm to solve these. - Apply recursive approach/method of problem solving and programming. - Using abstraction in the construction of programs. Skills: - Writing reliable and efficient / fast computer programs. - Write the program code that addresses advanced and complicated issues. - Manage and handle advanced data structures (with particular emphasis on trees and graphs). General competence: - Had developed the ability to think and solve sophisticated and complex problems. - Finding other/newer knowledge (here: algorithms), results and research in the field.
