Algorithms (in English)
IALe Acad. year 2022/2023 Summer semester 5 credits
Overview of fundamental data structures and their exploitation. Principles of dynamic memory allocation. Specification of abstract data types (ADT). Specification and implementation of ADT's: lists, stack and its exploitation, queue, searching table. Algorithms upon the binary trees. Searching: sequential, in the ordered and in not ordered array, searching with the guard (sentinel), binary search, search tree, balanced trees (AVL). Searching in hash-tables. Sorting (ordering), principles, sorting without the moving of items, sorting with multiple keys. Most common methods of sorting: Select-sort, Bubble-sort, Heap-sort, Insert-sort a jeho varianty, Shell-sort, recursive and non-recursive notation of the Quick sort, Merge-sort, List-merge-sort, Radix-sort.
