Course Description


This course will introduce students to designing scalable and effective algorithms for computational science & engineering applications. The course focuses on algorithm design, complexity analysis, experimentation, and optimization, for important science and engineering applications.


Students will develop knowledge and skills concerning:


Fall 2015 Tentative Topics:


Pre-requisites: Undergraduate Semester level CS 1331 Minimum Grade of C or Undergraduate Semester level CS 1372 Minimum Grade of C or Undergraduate Semester level CS 2316 Minimum Grade of C or Undergraduate Semester level CX 4010 Minimum Grade of C or Undergraduate Semester level ECE 2035 Minimum Grade of C or Undergraduate Semester level ECE 2036 Minimum Grade of C.


Students (from the Sciences, Engineering, and Computing) interested in algorithmic applications in science and engineering are encouraged to take this course. 


This course can be taken for satisfying the theory breadth requirement by computer science graduate students (M.S. and non-theory Ph.D. students).  This course cannot be taken by ACO students to satisfy their core requirement and by theory Ph.D. students in computer science to satisfy the theory breadth requirement.


Most of the homeworks will involve proofs. Some programming questions in homeworks and your project will require coding in your choice of language (C/Java/Python).
