Basic graph algorithms and graph representation. Combinatorial algorithms. Application of formal languages theory in computer science - syntax analysis and pattern matching.


Individual implementation of data types and algorithms discussed in the lectures is an important part of the exercises. Thus, capabilty of programmatic manipulation of linked data structures in some of the prevalent languages (C/C++/Java/...) is indispensable.

Syllabus of lectures:

Formal and informal analysis of the memory and time complexity of all data sructures and algorithms taught is an integral part of the course, it is not expicitely listed under particular topics.

1. Asymptotic complexity of algorithms. Graphs, their properties and memory representation.

2. Minimum spanning tree. Union-Find problem.

3. Euler paths. Directed graphs: connectivity, acyclic graphs.

4. Heaps. Fibonacci heap. Heaps performance comparison.

5. Dynamic data structures. Garbage collector.

6. Generating, enumeration aand isomorphism of data structures and combinatorial objects. Permutations, combinations, variations, trees.

7. Generating other combinatorial structures: k-element subsets, Gray code, non-isomorphic graphs.

8. Search in sequences - linear and quadratic interpolation. Median search.

9. Finite automata, implementation, automaton reduction.

10. Regular expressions and text search using regular expressions.

11. Approximate text search using finite automata, dictionary automata.

12. Search in higher dimensions, K-D trees, Quadtree.

13. Search trees: B a B+; 2-3-4 a R-B trees.

14. Search trees: Trie, suffix tree, splay tree.

Syllabus of tutorials:

Exercises and related homeworks are devoted mostly to implementation of lecture topics. Consequently, the themes of each exercise formally correspond to those of respective lecture.
