Algorithm Engineering 

We will learn the field of algorithm engineering which guiding principle is to bridge the gap between theory and practice. There are many well-known cases where classical theory of algorithms inadequately describes behavior of algorithm in practice such as simplex algorithm, quicksort, graph planarity, graph minor etc. Consequently it is of great importance to obtain good implementation and to experimentally examine the algorithm. During the course we will look at the algorithm engineering process and its phases: realistic models of computation, algorithm design, algorithm implementation, beyond worst-case analysis, experiments, generating realistic inputs, and creating algorithmic libraries.
