Brief Handbook Description: This unit provides an introduction to the design techniques that are used to find efficient algorithmic solutions for given problems. The techniques covered included greedy, divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming, and adjusting flows in networks. Students will extend their skills in algorithm analysis. The unit also provides an introduction to the concepts of computational complexity and reductions between problems.
Assumed Knowledge: MATH1004 OR MATH1904 OR MATH1064.
