After a successfully completed course the student will be able to:
discuss advanced concepts within the area of the course,
actively attack problems in the area of the course, both through independent work and through finding relevant information elsewhere,
extract and understand the essential content of scientific articles in the area of the course.
Course main content
The syllabus will vary between years. Examples of subjects are:
- algorithms for approximation
- data mining
- parallel computations
- probabilistic algorithms.
Can vary between years, but knowledge corresponding to one of the courses 2D1352/DD1352 Algorithms, Data Structures, and Complexity and 2D1354/DD2354 Algorithms and Complexity will always be needed. The instructor can give more information.
To be announced at least 4 weeks beofre the course starts at course web page.
