IAM565 - Introduction to Algorithms and Complexity

Credit: 3(2-2); ECTS: 8.0
Instructor(s): Consent of IAM
Prerequisites: Consent of Instructor(s)

Course Catalogue Description

This course is intended to all students at the Institute. After a short introduction to Matlab various algorithms, their complexity will be introduced and symbolic, numerical and stochastic algorithms will be followed. Students will be encouraged to carry out several projects in groups. Moreover, students in groups will complete a term project at the end of the semester.

Course Objectives

The aim of this course is to give on overview of mathematical background of various fundamental algorithms used frequently in applications and scientific programming. They will, hopefully, be couraged to work in groups on some projects.

Course Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course students should have a good overview of algorithms and their complexities. They will have a knowledge of basic algorithms and they will gain the skills of applying algorithmic approaches to scientific problems. Studying in groups will provide them with the experiences and responsibilities of working in groups.
