### CONTENT

### OBJECTIVE

To prepare students 1) to analyze an algorithm's performance by asymptotic analysis methods, 2) to understand the role of data structures and programming paradigms on the performance of algorithms, and 3) to design efficient algorithms taking into account these important factors.

### LEARNING OUTCOME

The students are expected to be able to analyse algorithms' resource usage by using asymptotic analysis and asymptotic notations.

The students are expected to be able identify the algorithm design technique used by a given algorithm such as divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming, greedy, etc.).

The students are expected to be able to use these algorithm design techniques to develop new algorithms for simple computational problems.

The students are expected to be aware of some common computational problems and some known algorithms for these problems.

The students are expected to know that there are limits of algorithmic approaches to the computational problems.

The students are expected to be able to design tests to analyse the correctness and the performance of practical implementations of algorithms.
