Advanced Algorithms: A Free Course from Harvard University

From Har­vard pro­fes­sor Jelani Nel­son comes “Advanced Algo­rithms,” a course intend­ed for grad­u­ate stu­dents and advanced under­grad­u­ate stu­dents. All 25 lec­tures you can find on Youtube here.

Here’s a quick course descrip­tion:

“An algo­rithm is a well-defined pro­ce­dure for car­ry­ing out some com­pu­ta­tion­al task. Typ­i­cal­ly the task is giv­en, and the job of the algo­rith­mist is to find such a pro­ce­dure which is effi­cient, for exam­ple in terms of pro­cess­ing time and/or mem­o­ry con­sump­tion. CS 224 is an advanced course in algo­rithm design, and top­ics we will cov­er include the word RAM mod­el, data struc­tures, amor­ti­za­tion, online algo­rithms, lin­ear pro­gram­ming, semi­def­i­nite pro­gram­ming, approx­i­ma­tion algo­rithms, hash­ing, ran­dom­ized algo­rithms, fast expo­nen­tial time algo­rithms, graph algo­rithms, and com­pu­ta­tion­al geom­e­try”

Advanced Algo­rithms” will be added to our col­lec­tion of Free Com­put­er Sci­ence Cours­es, a sub­set of our col­lec­tion, 1,700 Free Online Cours­es from Top Uni­ver­si­ties.
