COMP3600 — Algorithms

code: COMP3600 Algorithms 6 Algorithms is the foundation of Computer Science. It enables advances in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Cyber Security, Distributed, Mobile, and Cloud Computing, Computer Graphics and Animation, and many more. These advances have made Computer Science an indispensable part of our everyday life. In this course, we will study the basics of Algorithms Design and Analysis. We will focus on two fundamental problems in computing: Sorting and Searching. We will cover various data structures and algorithm design techniques for solving these two classes of problems, as well as performance measures and analysis techniques of these algorithms and data structures. Topics covered in this class include: */ The Problem: Search and Sort */ Analysis Framework: **/ Model of Computation **/ Asymptotic Analysis **/ Recurrence Analysis **/ Basic analysis of Randomized Algorithms **/ Empirical Analysis */ Algorithm Design Techniques: **/ Brute Force **/ Divide & Conquer **/ Decrease & Conquer **/ Transform & Conquer **/ Dynamic Programming **/ Greedy **/ Iterative Improvement https://programsandcourses.anu.edu.au/course/COMP3600 Students who successfully complete this subject will be able to comprehend, describe, discuss, adistinguish, and interpret various asymptotic analysis of time and space complexities of algorithms, such as big Oh, little oh, big Omega, small omega, and Theta (DL1)Students who successfully complete this subject will be able to comprehend, discuss, explain a variety of algorithms and data structures (DL1)Students who successfully complete this subject will be able to determine and apply the most effective variety of algorithms and data structures for solving computational problems (DL2)Students who successfully complete this subject will be able to analyze the time and space complexities of various types of algorithms, including recursion, dynamic programming, and simple randomized algorithms (DL2)Students who successfully complete this subject will be able to integrate a variety of algorithms to design and propose efficient solution to a simplified version of real-life problems, and justify the efficiency of his/her solution (DL3) Assignment 1 (20%)Assignment 2 (20%)Assignment 3 (20%)Final Exam (40%)
