This is a basic course on the complexity of algorithms. Roughly the first half of the course is devoted to the study of concrete algorithms of various types (graph algorithms, divide and conquer algorithms, greedy algorithms) which work in polynomial time. The time complexity is analyzed both "classically" (worst case analysis) and in an amortized manner. The second half of the course is then devoted to the study of the NP class, polynomial reducibility among problems, and NP-completeness proofs for various problems. The course concludes with several topics related to NP-completeness.

1. Time complexity of algorithms, asymptotic notation.

2. Divide and conquer algorithms (linear time median algorithm, Strassen's matrix multiplication), methods for solving recursive equations which describe the complexity of such algorithms.

3. Greedy algorithms on weighted matriods, their applications (minimum spanning tree, scheduling problems).

4. Graph algorithms based on DFS and BFS.

5. Lower bounds for time complexity of problems, decision trees, lower bound for sorting by comparisons.

6. Amortized complexity, binomial and Fibonacci heaps and their application in Dijkstra's algorithm.

7. Formal definitions of classes P and NP, polynomial reducibility among decision problems, NP-completeness.

8. Pseudopolynomial algorithms and strong NP-completeness.

9. Counting problems, class #P, #P-completeness.

10.Approximations of NP-hard problems, completely polynomial approximation schemes.
