Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
As for the basics of algorithm analysis, various machine models, complexity measures and the solving of recurrence relations are studied.
Regarding fundamental data structures, various search trees, hashing schemes, priority queues and union-find data structures are investigated.
As for basic algorithms, the focus is on the development of numerous max-flow and min-cut algorithms as well as algorithms for matching problems.
