AbstractTogether with the introductory course Informatics I this course provides the foundations of programming. This course particularly covers algorithms and data structures. Programming languages used in this course are Java and Python.
ObjectiveBasing on the knowledge covered by lecture Informatics I, the primary educational objectives of this course are constructive knowledge of data structures and algorithms.

When successfully attended the course, students have a good command of the mechanisms to construct an object oriented program. They know the typically used control and data structures and understand how an algorithmic problem is mapped to a sufficiently efficient computer program.

Secondary goals are an algorithmic computational thinking, undestanding the possibilities and limits of programming and to impart the way of thinking of a computer scientist.
ContentWe discuss typical data structures and algorithms.

More generally, formal thinking and the need for abstraction and importance of appropriate modeling capabilities will be motivated. Concrete topics are complexity of algorithms, divide and conquer-principles, recursion, sort- and search-algorithms, elementary dynamic data structures, algorithms on graphs.

The concepts of the lectures will be motivated with applications. The programming languages used in the lectures and the practical exercises are Java and Python.

For the exercises an online-compiler and online-submission system is used.
Lecture notesThe slides will be available for download on the course home page.
