Description
This course is about the fundamental concepts of algorithmic problems focusing on recursion, backtracking, dynamic programming and divide and conquer approaches. As far as I am concerned, these techniques are very important nowadays, algorithms can be used (and have several applications) in several fields from software engineering to investment banking or R&D.

Section 1 - RECURSION

what are recursion and recursive methods

stack memory and heap memory overview

what is stack overflow?

Fibonacci numbers

factorial function

tower of Hanoi problem

Section 2 - SEARCH ALGORITHMS

linear search approach

binary search algorithm

Section 3 - SELECTION ALGORITHMS

what are selection algorithms?

Hoare's algorithm

how to find the k-th order statistics in O(N) linear running time?

quickselect algorithm

median of medians algorithm

the secretary problem

Section 4 - BACKTRACKING

what is backtracking?

n-queens problem

Hamiltonian cycle problem

coloring problem

knight's tour problem

maze problem

Sudoku problem

Section 5 - DYNAMIC PROGRAMMING

what is dynamic programming?

knapsack problem

rod cutting problem

subset sum problem

longest common subsequence (LCS) problem

Section 6 - OPTIMAL PACKING

what is optimal packing?

bin packing problem

Section 7 - DIVIDE AND CONQUER APPROACHES

what is the divide and conquer approach?

dynamic programming and divide and conquer method

how to achieve sorting in O(NlogN) with merge sort?

the closest pair of points problem

Section 8 - Substring Search Algorithms

substring search algorithms

brute-force substring search

Z substring search algorithm

Rabin-Karp algorithm and hashing

Knuth-Morris-Pratt (KMP) substring search algorithm

Section 9 - COMMON INTERVIEW QUESTIONS

anagram problem

palindrome problem

integer reversion problem

dutch national flag problem

trapping rain water problem

In each section we will talk about the theoretical background for all of these algorithms then we are going to implement these problems together from scratch in Python.
