Course Description

Data structures and algorithms are foundational concepts in computer science and are essential to developing efficient and effective software applications. This course covers the fundamental data structures and algorithms used in computer science, including arrays, linked lists, stacks, queues, trees, graphs, and sorting and searching algorithms. The course begins by introducing basic data structures and their operations, such as inserting and deleting elements, searching, and sorting. It then progresses to more advanced data structures, such as trees and graphs, and their applications in solving real-world problems. The course also covers common algorithm design paradigms, such as divide-and-conquer, greedy algorithms, and dynamic programming, and their applications in solving problems efficiently. Students in this course will learn how to analyze the performance of data structures and algorithms, including time and space complexity, and will be able to make informed decisions about which data structures and algorithms are best suited for specific problem domains. In addition to theoretical concepts, the course also includes hands-on programming assignments to reinforce learning and develop practical programming skills. Upon completion of this course, students will have a deep understanding of the fundamental th used in computer science and will be able to apply this knowledge to solve complex problems efficiently. This course is suitable for anyone with a basic understanding of programming and a desire to learn about data structures and algorithms. It is particularly useful for students pursuing a degree in computer science, software engineering, or a related field, as well as software developers looking to expand their knowledge and skills. This is a critical course for computer science students, as it forms the basis of many other courses in the field. It is essential for students who plan to pursue careers in software engineering, data science, machine learning, and other related fields. In summary, This course is an essential course for anyone interested in computer science, software engineering, or software development. It provides students with the foundational knowledge and practical skills needed to develop efficient and effective software applications. Author: Lalit Vashistha
