 Learning objectives: 

  To acquaint with the principles of methods of proving of correctness of programs and with basic concepts of construction of proved programms. To learn the fundamentals of algorithm coplexity. To learn the principles of dynamic memory allocation. To acquaint with basic abstract data types and to command its implementation and exploitation. To learn and command recursive and non recursive notation of basic algorithms. To overrule the implementation and analysis of most used algorithms for searching and sorting.  Description: 

  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, set, array, searching table, graph, binary tree. 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 hashtables. Ordering (sorting), principles, sorting without the moving of items, sorting with multiple keys. Most common methods of sorting:Selectsort, Bubblesort, Heapsort, Insertsort a jeho varianty, Shellsort, recursive and nonrecursive notation of the Quick sort, Mergesort,Listmergesort, Radixsort. Recursion and backtrack algorithms. Searching the patterns in the text. Proving of correctness of programs, construction of proved programs.  Knowledge and skills required for the course: 

 
 Basic knowledge of the programming in procedural programming language
 Knowledge of secondary school level matematics
