CPSC 041. Algorithms
The study of algorithms is useful in many diverse areas. As algorithms are studied, considerable attention is devoted to analyzing formally their time and space requirements and proving their correctness. Topics covered include abstract data types, trees (including balanced trees), graphs, searching, sorting, NP complete optimization problems, and the impact of several models of parallel computation on the design of algorithms and data structures.
