 Inhoud
 body { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } table { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } The first two weeks of the study unit “Algorithmic Discrete Mathematics” are devoted to the understanding of elementary data structures, and their use in the design and theoretical analysis of classic discrete algorithms. This includes basic principles and techniques to analyse the time and space complexity of algorithms, worst-case and average-case. The data structures include heaps, binary trees, as well as priority queues. Algorithms that are dealt with are for sorting, computational problems with permutations, the Euclidean algorithm to compute the greatest common divisor, the computation of shortest paths, minimum spanning trees. General algorithmic techniques that are introduced are divide and conquer, as well as dynamic programming. Some of these algorithms are implemented using the Python programming language, as part of the graph isomorphism implementation project. The third and fourth weeks are devoted to structural, algorithmic, and combinatorial problems that lie in the core of discrete and combinatorial mathematics: Students understand core algorithmic techniques in discrete optimization, next to shortest paths and spanning trees also algorithms for network flows, stable matchings and clustering, the algorithmic power of duality on the example of maximum flows and minimum cuts, and learn how to solve combinatorial counting problems by means of (second-order, linear) recurrence relations using the characteristic polynomial.
