Course Description

This course, offered by the University of Colorado Boulder, will introduce students to the fundamental algorithms used for searching, sorting, and indexing data. These techniques are essential for efficient data processing and organization in a variety of fields, including computer science, data analysis, and information retrieval. Through a combination of lectures, readings, and hands-on programming assignments, students will learn about the theoretical foundations of algorithms, as well as practical techniques for implementing them in real-world scenarios. The course will cover a range of topics, including data structures, algorithm analysis, and algorithm design paradigms. By the end of the course, students will have a solid understanding of the algorithms commonly used for searching, sorting, and indexing data, as well as the ability to analyze and evaluate their performance. They will also gain experience in programming using the popular language Python, which is widely used in the field of computer science. This course is designed for intermediate-level students with a background in computer programming. It is ideal for those interested
