Course objectives
This is a continuation of basic programming course for first year students of Applied Informatics.
At the end of the course students should be able to:
solve bigger algorithmic problems;
use selected standard algorithms, such as sorting and searching, basic graph algorithms, dynamic data structures;
use all common constructs of programming languages, including recursion and dynamic variables;
develop and debug computer programs in an integrated devolopmental environment;
  • 1. Modular programming, units. Unit CRT.
  • 2. Dynamic allocation, pointer. Dynamic data structures.
  • 3. Linear linked list - operations, types of linear linked lists, examples.
  • 4. Recursion - principle, examples, backtracking.
  • 5. Depth-first search and breadth-first search. Backtracking speed-up - pruning, heuristics.
  • 6. Divide and conquer method - principle, examples. Quicksort algorithm.
  • 7. Binary tree. Arithmetic expression notations, evaluation, conversions.
  • 8. Serching tree. Balanced tree. Multiway tree.
  • 9. Storage and search of data - summary. Hash tables. Sorting - algorithms, efficiency. K-th least element.
  • 10. Graphs - graph representation, basic graph algorithms.
  • 11. Implementation of selected graph algorithms.
  • 12. Problem solving examples.

Teaching methods
Lectures and seminars in full-time study, tutorials in part-time study. Minimal required participation is 75% on seminars in full-time study and 50% on tutorials in part-time study. Students with lower than required participation have to fulfill additional study duties.
Assessment methods
The course is completed with a credit and exam. Two specific studies, which consist of design, development and debugging of computer programs, written documentation included, are required to award the credit. The exam consist of a written part, where students should write a program, procedure or function, and a verbal part. Knowledge of programming language, algorithms and programming techniques according to the lecture is required.
