This course provides a complete introduction to Graph Theory algorithms in computer science.
Topics covered in these videos include: how to store and represent graphs on a computer; common graph theory problems seen in the wild; famous graph traversal algorithms (DFS & BFS); Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm (both the lazy and eager version); what a topological sort is, how to find one, and places it's used; learning about detecting negative cycles and finding shortest paths with the Bellman-Ford and Floyd-Warshall algorithms; discovering bridges and articulation points in graphs; understanding and detecting strongly connected components with Tarjan's algorithm, and finally solving the traveling salesman problem with dynamic programming.
Who this course is for:
- Anybody ready for a deep dive into graph theory!
My name is William, I am a software engineer for Google Maps stationed in Mountain View California. I am a former ACM-ICPC world finalist and avid problem solver looking to share my knowledge of computer programming and problem-solving.
I teach courses on Udemy because there exists a need to create high quality content about complex topics in computer science. The areas I focus on are data structures and algorithms; together they are the most important topics to master on the road to becoming an exemplary software engineer. Consider enrolling in one or more of the courses I have developed; they are designed for everyone, whether you are a beginner or advanced.
