Instructors and contact information


The goal of this course is to practice solving a large algorithmic problem and to practice implementing and experimentally investigating solutions to algorithmic problems. A second goal is to practice various professional skills, such as working effectively in a team, planning, technical writing and presenting. To this end students work in teams on an algorithmically-oriented assignment, follow a training on presentation skills, and present their work in presentations and written reports.


The following documentation will be supplied in due time.
