Princeton University offers online course on Algorithms

Analysis of Algorithms online course

Princeton University offers an online course in Analysis of Algorithms for free.

This course teaches a calculus that enables precise quantitative predictions of large combinatorial structures. In addition, this course covers generating functions and real asymptotics and then introduces the symbolic method in the context of applications in the analysis of algorithms and basic structures such as permutations, trees, strings, words, and mappings.

About the Course:
Analysis of Algorithms aims to enable precise quantitative predictions of the properties of large combinatorial structures. The theory has emerged over recent decades as essential both for the scientific analysis of algorithms in computer science and for the study of scientific models in many other disciplines, including probability theory, statistical physics, computational biology and information theory. This course covers recurrence relations, generating functions, asymptotics, and fundamental structures such as trees, permutations, strings, tries, words, and mappings, in the context of applications to the analysis of algorithms.

Lecture 1: Analysis of Algorithms
Lecture 2: Recurrences
Lecture 3: Solving recurrences with GFs
Lecture 4: Asymptotics
Lecture 5: The symbolic method
