Fundamental Algorithms (CSE)



The course will provide an overview on the analysis of fundamental algorithms. Topics will be:

  • Fundamentals: Models of Computation, Complexity Measures
  • Sorting: Bubble-Sort, Merge-Sort, Quick-Sort, Median-Algorithms, Lower Bounds, etc.: sorting in parallel
  • Searching: Hashing, Search Tress, etc.
  • Arithmetic Problems: parallel prefix computation, parallel matrix and vector operations
  • Foundations of parallel algorithms and simple models of parallel computation
  • Algorithms on (weighted) graphs: traversals, shortest paths, etc.
