Data Structures and Algorithms (CISC 610)

Harrisburg University

This course emphasizes fundamental algorithms and advanced methods of algorithmic design, analysis and implementation. This class overs techniques used to analyze problems and algorithms (including asymptotic, upper/lower bounds, best/average/worst case analysis, amortized analysis, complexity), basic techniques used to design algorithms (including divide and conquer/greedy/dynamic programming/heuristics, choosing appropriate data structures) and important classical algorithms (including sorting, string, matrix, and graph algorithms) and data structures.
