 Synopsis:

The course covers the basics from the efficient algorithm design, data structures, and graph theory, belonging to the core knowledge of every computing curriculum. It is interlinked with the concurrent BIEAAG and BIEZDM courses in which the students gain the basic skills and knowledge needed for time and space complexity of algorithms and learn to handle practically the asymptotic mathematics.
 Requirements:

Entry knowledge: Active algorithmic skills for solving basic types of computational tasks, programming skills in some HLL (Java, C++), and knowledge of basic notions from the mathematical analysis and combinatorics are expected. Students are expected to take concurrent courses BIEAAG and BIEZDM.
