Contents

Algorithmic techniques

  • Greedy algorithms
  • Dynamic programming
  • Divide-and-conquer
  • space and time complexity (worst-case, amortised, output-sensitive, resolution of running time recurrences)
  • Correctness proofs
  • Algorithms for set problems, graph problems, text problems and geometric problems
  • Algorithms for external memory models
  • Algorithms for data streams
  • Approximation algorithms

Qualification Goals

  • Algorithm design skills,
  • Knowledge of the most important design and analysis paradigms,
  • Use of efficient data structures for the design of algorithms,
  • Insights into the analysis of algorithms with respect to correctness and efficiency
  • Practice of scientific methods (recognition, formulation, and solution of problems, training of abstract thinking),
  • Training of oral communication skills in the exercises by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussion.

Prerequisites

Translation is missing. Here is the German original:

Keine. Empfohlen werden die Kompetenzen, die in dem Modul Algorithmen und Datenstrukturen vermittelt werden.

Please note:

This page describes a module according to the latest valid module guide in Wintersemester 2018/19. Most rules valid for a module are not covered by the examination regulations and can therefore be updated on a semesterly basis. The following versions are available in the online module guide:

The module guide contains all modules, independent of the current event offer. Please compare the current course catalogue in Marvin.

The information in this online module guide was created automatically. Legally binding is only the information in the examination regulations (Prüfungsordnung). If you notice any discrepancies or errors, we would be grateful for any advice.
