Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

Develops techniques used in the design and analysis of algorithms, with an emphasis on problems arising in computing applications. Example applications are drawn from systems and networks, artificial intelligence, computer vision, data mining, and computational biology. This course covers four major algorithm design techniques (greedy algorithms, divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming, and network flow), undecidability and NP-completeness, and algorithmic techniques for intractable problems (including identification of structured special cases , approximation algorithms, local search heuristics, and online algorithms).

When Offered Fall, spring, summer.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: CS 2800 and CS 3110. Students who got an A- or better in both CS 2800 and CS 2110 are welcome to take CS 4820 without CS 3110.
