This course studies computer algorithms, considering their construction, validation and effectiveness. After a general introduction to the subject a number of specific topics will be covered: the problem of sorting data sets into order, the theory of formal grammars and problems such as the parsing of arithmetic expressions, the construction and use of pseudorandom numbers.

This book shows how to design approximation algorithms: efficient algorithms that find provably near-optimal solutions. It is organized around techniques for designing approximation algorithms, including greedy and local search algorithms.
A data structure is a particular way of storing and organizing data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently. Contents of the book: Sequences; Dictionaries; Sets; Priority queues; Successors and neighbors; Integer and string searching.
