Coursera Divide and Conquer, Sorting and Searching, and Randomized Algorithms

Stanford University via coursera

  • Overview
  1. Coursera
    Stanford University
    4 weeks
    4-8 hours/week
    Paid Certificate Available
    Part of:
    Algorithms | Coursera
    The primary topics in this part of the specialization are: asymptotic ("Big-oh") notation, sorting and searching, divide and conquer (master method, integer and matrix multiplication, closest pair), and randomized algorithms (QuickSort, contraction algorithm for min cuts).

    Who is this class for: Learners with at least a little bit of programming experience who want to learn the essentials of algorithms. In a University computer science curriculum, this course is typically taken in the third year.

    Week 1
    Introduction; "big-oh" notation and asymptotic analysis.

    Week 2
    Divide-and-conquer basics; the master method for analyzing divide and conquer algorithms.

    Week 3
    The QuickSort algorithm and its analysis; probability review.

    Week 4
    Linear-time selection; graphs, cuts, and the contraction algorithm.

    Taught by
    Tim Roughgarden
