Development of more sophisticated ideas in data type and structure, with an introduction to the connection between data structures and the algorithms they support. Data abstraction. Controlled access structures. Trees, lists, graphs, arrays; algorithms design strategies; backtracking, greedy storage, divide and conquer, branch and bound. Elementary techniques for analysis; recursion equations, estimations methods, elementary combinatorial arguments. Examination of problem areas such as searching, sorting, shortest path, matrix and polynomial operations, and the indicated representations and algorithms. The student will use the techniques learned in this course and in previous courses to solve a number of logically complex programming problems. This course is for CS graduate students needing it to fulfill prerequisite requirements. It is not available to CS undergraduates without specific permission from the Undergraduate Coordinator.
