This course covers the essential information that every serious programmer needs to know about algorithms and data structures, with emphasis on applications and scientific performance analysis of Java implementations. Part I covers elementary data structures, sorting, and searching algorithms. Part II focuses on graph- and string-processing algorithms.
While this course was originally designed for first- and second-year undergraduates, it is appropriate not only for college students but also for professionals. Two-thirds of our learners are college graduates working in industry.
