This is the syllabus for Data Structures and Algorithms course intended for undergraduate programs. The following sections provide brief information about Purpose, Description, Objectives, Prerequisites, References Documents and Grades of the course.

Letter to student

This course and this Student Manual reflect a collective effort by your instructor. This

course is an important component of our academic program. Although it has been offered

for many years, this latest version represents an attempt to expand the range of sources of

information and instruction so that the course continues to be up-to-date and the methods

well suited to what is to be learned.

You will be asked from time-to-time to offer feedback on how the Student Manual is

working and how the course is progressing. Your comments will inform the development

team about what is working and what requires attention. Our goal is to help you learn

what is important about this particular field and to eventually succeed as a professional

applying what you learn in this course.

This Student Manual is designed to assist you through the course by providing specific

information about student responsibilities including requirements, timelines and


I hope you enjoy the course.

Purposes of course

The purpose of this course is to understand important problems, challenges, concepts and techniques from the field of Algorithms and Data Structures. In order to achieve this, students learn how to design efficient algorithms, evaluate their time and space complexity. More specifically, in this course, students will:

  • learn good principles of algorithm design;
  • learn how to analyse algorithms and estimate their worst-case and average-case behaviour (in easy cases);
  • become familiar with fundamental data structures and with the manner in which these data structures can best be implemented;
  • become accustomed to the description of algorithms in both functional and procedural styles;
  • learn how to apply their theoretical knowledge in practice (via the practical component of the course).

Course description

This course introduces base knowledge of algorithm design, elementary analysis of algorithms, and fundamental data structures. The emphasis is on choosing appropriate data structures and designing correct and efficient algorithms to operate on these data structures.

In computer programming, algorithms play an important role. You will learn in this course how to develop efficient algorithms, analyse their running time and implement them efficiently. We discuss sorting algorithms, searching, recursion, dynamic and graph algorithms.

Mark and Don are planning to sell each of their marble collections at a garage sale. If Don has 1 more than 3 times the number of marbles Mark has, how many does each boy have to sell if the total number of marbles is 113?

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
