CSC473H1: Advanced Algorithm Design


Advanced algorithm design techniques, with emphasis on the role that geometry, approximation, randomization, and parallelism play in modern algorithms. Examples will be drawn from linear programming and basics of continuous optimization; randomized algorithms for string matching, graph problems, and number theory problems; streaming algorithms and parallel algorithms in the Map-Reduce model.


NOTE: Students not enrolled in the Computer Science Major or Specialist program at the FAS, UTM, or UTSC, or the Data Science Specialist at FAS, are limited to a maximum of three 300-/400-level CSC/ECE half-courses.
