Algorithms lie at the heart of Computer Science and software development. They embody the way in which we solve problems using computers. This module will introduce the fundamentals of data structures and algorithms. Data structures will be formulated to represent information in such a way that it can be conveniently and efficiently manipulated by the algorithms that are developed. The ideas will be presented both abstractly, and via problem-solving and implementations.
