COL 702: Advanced data structures and AlgorithmsSemester I 2018-2019Instructor : Sandeep Sen |
The total will be computed as Minors 1 and 2 - 20% each, Major 40%, Quizes -
and assignments - 20%.
Two of the best quizes (out of three)
will constitute 5% and the rest from the programming and
take-home assignments.
Attendence policy Students should abide by the attendence rules
stipulated by the Institute. Students failing to meet attendence requirements
will be reported for possible penal actions.
Prerequisites: CSL201 (Data Structures) or equivalent Recommended : CSL105 (Discrete Structures)
Contents.
Review of basic data structures and their realization in object
oriented environment. The following topics will be covered with emphasis on
formal analysis and design, Dynamic Data structures; 2-3 trees, Red-black
trees, binary heaps, binomial and Fibonacci heaps, Skip lists, universal
hashing. Data structures for maintaing ranges, intervals and disjoint sets
with applications. Basic algorithmic techniques like dynamic programming and
divide- and-conquer, Sorting algorithms with analysis, integer sorting,
selection, Graph algorithms like DFS with applications, MSTs and shortest
paths.
Plagiarism issues and consequences Students are expected to uphold the
institute prescribed norms of the honor code. For take-home assignments, published
material (including internet) can be referenced but there cannot be any reproduction
of the material - it falls under plagiarism. This applies to copying of code and
solutions to assignment problems or working in groups and sharing solutions.
The penalty for offenders would be loss of at least
one grade to semester debarrment as prescribed by the institute disciplinary
committee.
