The focus of the course is the development and implementation of advanced algorithms. Students will learn to select appropriate algorithms for a given problem, integrate multiple algorithms for solving a complex problem, design new algorithms, and implement them.  Algorithms covered include dynamic programming, shortest path, max flow, suffix trees, and combinatorial algorithms. They will also learn skills required for programming contests, which include evaluation of problem difficulty, solving problems in teams, and work under time pressure.
