In this course a number of advanced techniques for efficient algorithm design are studied, often at the hand of problems from networks and graphs. In many applications, networks and graphs are used as a model. Typical examples are networks of roads, or electronic networks. In other applications, the graph model may be less obvious, but appears to be very useful, like for scheduling problems. In this course, the translation of problem to network model is treated, and algorithmic problems and their solutions on networks and graphs are looked into. Some topics are: shortest paths, flow, matchings, triangulated graphs, treewidth, graph isomorphism, graph drawing, exact algorithms for fundamental graph problems, small world networks, facility location.
