- Course Outline: This course is an introduction to the analysis of algorithms. We are going to cover some basics of proving algorithm correctness (pre/post-condition, loop invariants, and termination), and then we are going to spend the bulk of the time on three classical categories of algorithms: Greedy, Divide-and-Conquer, and Dynamic Programming. We are going to see examples of problems that yield to these types of algorithms. We will discuss NP-completeness when we meet Dynamic Programming algorithms.
- Lectures: W 6:00-7:00 online

- Grading: 10 quizzes, worth 5% each, and 4 assignments, worth 5% each, and two midterms and a final exam worth 10% each.
- How to avoid plagiarism: Verbal discussions of problems among students are allowed, but you should not show written notes, and you should not leave such discussions with written notes.
- Attendance: Students are encouraged but not required to attend the lectures. All quizzes, assignments, midterms and the final exam will be written online.
