Syllabus CSC301: Algorithms & Data Structures Spring 2020 (Block 8) Instructor: Ajit Chavan (achavan@cornellcollege.edu) Classes: Morning Sessions: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm (Zoom) Afternoon Sessions: 2:00 – 4:00 pm (Zoom) Textbook: “Introduction to Computer Algorithms”, by Thomas Cormen, Charles Leiserson, Ronald Rivest, Clifford Stein, MIT Press. Description: This is one of the core courses in Computer Science. This course will provide you with the essential foundation needed to be a good programmer. We will look at different data structures to learn following aspects of each data structure: 1. how they store data? 2. What are the available operations on them. 3. Efficiency of each operation. 4. How to choose which data structure to use. We will learn following data structures: 5. Arrays 6. Linked List 7. Trees 8. Hash Tables 9. Graphs (if time permits) Then we will move on to learning about the algorithms from Computer Science's perspective. We will learn the following things about Computer Algorithms: 1. what is an algorithm? 2. How to prove the correctness of the algorithm? 3. How to evaluate the performance of an algorithm? In other words, given two algorithms, how to decide which one is more efficient than the other. 4. What is the difference between an approach, an algorithm, and a program? Then, we will start learning different algorithm examples: 1. Sorting Algorithms 2. Searching Algorithms. In the last phase of our course, we will learn two of the most crucial algorithm design techniques Greedy Algorithms and Dynamic Programming. 1 I completely understand that this is a lot to cover in a block, even under normal circumstances, and current times are not normal in any way. I still wanted to put everything on the syllabus because every single topic of this syllabus is crucial for you to find a good job and be a successful computer scientist. This does not mean that I will bolt through all the topics to complete the syllabus, but I wanted to put these topics on your radar so that you can keep studying even after the block is over and will learn all these topics. We will give special attention to the following education priorities as guided by Cornell College’s Mission and Core Values: 1. Knowledge: We will improve our knowledge of data structures and algorithm methodologies. 2. Inquiry: We will discuss a lot of problems. We will discuss different solutions to these problems and investigate which solution is better than the others. 3. Communication: We will get more experience about how to engage with others in productive dialogue. We will present a simple concept and then have a discussion about the different architectural implication of the newly introduce concept. 4. Ethical Behavior: We will recognize personal, academic, and professional standards and act with integrity.
