Prerequisites:CMPT 225, (MACM 201 or CMPT 210), (MATH 150 or MATH 151), and (MATH 232 or MATH 240), all with a minimum grade of C-. MATH 154 or MATH 157 with a grade of at least B+ may be substituted for MATH 150 or MATH 151.
Design and analysis of efficient data structures and algorithms. General techniques for building and analyzing algorithms (greedy, divide & conquer, dynamic programming, network flows). Introduction to NP-completeness.
The objective of this course is to introduce concepts and problem-solving techniques that are used in the design and analysis of efficient algorithms. This is done by studying various algorithms and data structures.
- The following topics may be included:
- Motivating example: the stable matching problem
- Greedy (graph) algorithms, BFS, DFS, Dijkstra's Kruskal's and Prim's
- Simple data structures: priority queues (with heaps) and union-find
- Divide and conquer algorithms ant their anaysis: solving recursions
- Dynamic programing algorithms and their analysis
- Flow algorithms and matching
- Randomized algorithms
The course has a final examination (worth 40% of the total grade).
There will be four homework assignments which won't be collected and graded. Instead, there will be four 50-min quizzes in class (worth 15% each).

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
Students with a faith background who may need accommodations during the semester are encouraged to assess their needs as soon as possible and review the Multifaith religious accommodations website. The page outlines ways they begin working toward an accommodation and ensure solutions can be reached in a timely fashion.
