This subject will give students a basic understanding of algorithms and programming and teach them to design, implement and test algorithms for simple tasks. The students will understand the notion of computational complexity. They will learn about basic program building blocks such as loops, conditional statements, variables, functions and recursion. We will introduce the most often used data structures (queue, stack, list, array etc) and operations on them. We will show the basic algorithms, for example for searching and sorting. Finally, we will briefly cover the main programming paradigms.

Course outlines:

1. What is an algorithm, why to study algorithms, my first algortihm,
Python, organizational remarks.
2. Basis programming structures and techniques (loops, conditional
statements). Asymptotic complexity.
3. Arrays, insertion sort. Debugging.
4. Queue and stack. Finite automaton.
5. List. Merge sort.
6. Recursion. Quick sort. Functions.
7. Numerical algorithms, numerical accuracy.
8. Priority queue, heap, heapsort.
9. Hash tables.
10. Trees.
11. Sets and association maps.
12. Graphs and graph operations. State space search. Backtracking.
13. Strings, searching and sorting.
14. Programming paradigms.

Exercises outline:

Python programming language. Students will independently solve a number of short practical programming exercises.
