COMS10007 Algorithms - 2019/2020 (TB2)

News:
Teaching Staff: Teaching Units: Assessment: Textbook/Course Material:
Most of the lectures will be taught using slides. Slides will be made available online (below on this webpage) soon after the lecture. An excellent and more detailed coverage of many of the topics (however not all of them) treated in this course is given in:

"Introduction to Algorithms", Cormen, Leiserson, Rivest, Stein, 3rd edition, The MIT press, 2009 .

I highly recommend this textbook. It is the standard textbook for basic algorithms courses and is based on the material taught at MIT. It will be useful for all algorithms courses at the University of Bristol (2nd year Data Structures and Algorithms, 3rd year Advanced Algorithms).
