The course is a continuation of NTIN061 Algorithms and Data Structures II; algorithms taught in ADS II are shown under a different point of view and the course is directed to a detailed illustration of underlzing algorithmic ideas. Algorithms are presented using visualizations that are created so that the ideas are presented visually and algorithm invariants are visualized. The goal is to present algorithms as a creative part of the computer science and to teach students to think about the behavior and properties of algorithms in an exact way.
