* Course Description:
This course is about the design, analysis and use of algorithms. We will study a number of common algorithm design techniques. We will apply each technique to several problems so that we can see how to use the technique in a variety of problems and come to understand how to apply it in new situations. We will also solve some problems using several of the design techniques so that we can compare the different techniques and have a basis for selecting one over another. The algorithms that we use as examples are interesting and useful in their own right. The algorithms not only illustrate methods of design and analysis, but also solve common problems that arise in a variety of applications.

Logistics

* Attendance - one class absence will result in the deduction of two points out of 100 points. Five absences will not result in ten points deduction, but "failure" (i.e., grade 'F') in this course. * Exam - there will be midterm exam and final exam for the evaluation of the knowledge learned from the class. * Homework - much intensive homework will be set. Any cheating (or copying) will result in grade 'F'.
Evaluation

* Attendance (10%), Homework (10%), Midterm Exam. (30%), Final Exam. (30%), Term Project (20%)
