Hanoi - 2007


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.

why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
Adin Reply
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
what school?
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
anyone know any internet site where one can find nanotechnology papers?

what does nano mean?
Anassong Reply
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?
Damian Reply
absolutely yes

Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
s. Reply
there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
in general
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
