CSE 4/531: Introduction to Analysis of Algorithms

Spring 2011

Prof. Russ Miller

217 Bell Hall

This course is concerned with the design, analysis, and implementation of algorithms for sequential and parallel models of computation. Traditional algorithmic techniques, including divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming, and greedy algorithms will be discussed. Models of computation include the traditional RAM, as well as standard parallel models, such as the PRAM, array, ring, mesh, hypercube, and pyramid. In addition, innovative parallel models that involve dynamic reconfiguration will be discussed. Problem domains include computational geometry, graph theory, image analysis, sorting, and searching. Time and space complexity of solutions to problems are a critical component to the course.
