Semester of Instruction
Objectives and Content
The course includes advanced methods for design and analysis of discrete algorithms. We also study graf and geometrical algorithms, online and dynamic algorithms, randomisation and approximation in handling NP-hard problems.
At the completion of INF334 the student should:
- master advanced methods within algorithm design and analysis.
- be able to use these methods to design practical algorithms for large or difficult problems.
- be able to apply various methods that are developed for problems that cannot be solved efficiently within the classical P vs NP dichotomy.
Required Previous Knowledge
