This course is about the fundamental concepts of algorithmic problems, focusing on backtracking and dynamic programming. As far as I am concerned these techniques are very important nowadays, algorithms can be used (and have several applications) in several fields from software engineering to investment banking or R& D.
what are recursion and recursive methods
linear and binary search
tower of Hanoi problem
what are selection algorithms
the secretary problem
what is backtracking
n-queens problem and Hamiltonian cycle problem
knight’s tour problem
what is dynamic programming
coin change problem and rod cutting problem
bin packing problem
closest pair of points problem
top interview questions (Google, Facebook and Amazon)
The first chapter is about backtracking: we will talk about problems such as n-queens problem or hamiltonian cycles, coloring problem and Sudoku problem. In the second chapter we will talk about dynamic programming, theory then the concrete examples one by one: fibonacci sequence problem and knapsack problem.
In each section we will talk about the theoretical background for all of these algorithms then we are going to implement these problems together from scratch in Java.
FINALLY YOU CAN LEARN ABOUT THE MOST COMMON INTERVIEW QUESTIONS (Google, MicroSoft, EPAM etc.)
Thanks for joining the course, let’s get started!
Students should have some basic programming background (loops, classes, objects etc.)
