Course content
String encoding (Huffman encoding trees, Lempel-Ziv encodings) Data type String and searching algorithms (Knuth-Morris-Pratt algorithm, Karp-Rabin algorithm, string-matching automaton) Rrefix trees (trie) and their implementations (de la Briandais tree) Advanced heaps (Binomial heap, Fibonacci heap, Pairing heap) and their implementations Table implementations using search trees (AVL-tree, Treap, Splay-tree, 2-3 tree, (a-b)-tree, B-tree) Data structures stored within external memory (block transfers, buffers) Sequential files and random access files Heap-files and hash-files Ordered files and indexed sequential files Hierarchical organization of indexed files (B+-tree) Dense multi-indexed files

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Skills training
Learning outcomes
The main goal of the course is to familiarize students with advanced data structures and relevant algorithms as essentials of sophisticated software applications.
Passing the course enables to manage advanced data structures, their applications and efficient implementations, which support creation of high-quality software products.
There is expected fundamental knowledge of basic abstract data types and their implementations & applications.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination, Written examination, Home assignment evaluation

Given assignment approves that a student attended lessons in a required scale and fulfilled qualified requirements (elaboration of software works focused on implementation of selected advanced data structures and relevant algorithms).
