CS 161: Design and Analysis of Algorithms

Terms: Aut, Win, Sum | Units: 3-5 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-EngrAppSci, WAY-FR

CS 166: Data Structures

This course is designed as a deep dive into the design, analysis, implementation, and theory of data structures. Over the course of the quarter, we'll explore fundamental techniques in data structure design (isometries, amortization, randomization, word-level parallelism, etc.). In doing so, we'll see a number of classic data structures like Fibonacci heaps and suffix trees as well as more modern data structures like count-min sketches and range minimum queries. By the time we've finished, we'll have seen some truly beautiful strategies for solving problems efficiently. Prerequisites: CS107 and CS161.

CS 168: The Modern Algorithmic Toolbox

This course will provide a rigorous and hands-on introduction to the central ideas and algorithms that constitute the core of the modern algorithms toolkit. Emphasis will be on understanding the high-level theoretical intuitions and principles underlying the algorithms we discuss, as well as developing a concrete understanding of when and how to implement and apply the algorithms. The course will be structured as a sequence of one-week investigations; each week will introduce one algorithmic idea, and discuss the motivation, theoretical underpinning, and practical applications of that algorithmic idea. Each topic will be accompanied by a mini-project in which students will be guided through a practical application of the ideas of the week. Topics include hashing, dimension reduction and LSH, boosting, linear programming, gradient descent, sampling and estimation, and an introduction to spectral techniques. Prerequisites: CS107 and CS161, or permission from the instructor.

CS 264: Beyond Worst-Case Analysis

This course is motivated by problems for which the traditional worst-case analysis of algorithms fails to differentiate meaningfully between different solutions, or recommends an intuitively "wrong" solution over the "right" one. This course studies systematically alternatives to traditional worst-case analysis that nevertheless enable rigorous and robust guarantees on the performance of an algorithm. Topics include: instance optimality; smoothed analysis; parameterized analysis and condition numbers; models of data (pseudorandomness, locality, diffuse adversaries, etc.); average-case analysis; robust distributional analysis; resource augmentation; planted and semi-random graph models. Motivating problems will be drawn from online algorithms, online learning, constraint satisfaction problems, graph partitioning, scheduling, linear programming, hashing, machine learning, and auction theory. Prerequisites: CS161 (required). CS261 is recommended but not required.

IMMUNOL 207: Essential Methods in Computational and Systems Immunology

Introduction to the major underpinnings of systems immunology: first principles of development of computational approaches to immunological questions and research; details of the algorithms and statistical principles underlying commonly used tools; aspects of study design and analysis of data sets. Prerequisites: CS106a and CS161 strongly recommended.

MS&E 334: Topics in Social Data

This course provides a in-depth survey of methods research for the analysis of large-scale social and behavioral data. There will be a particular focus on recent developments in discrete choice theory and preference learning. Connections will be made to graph-theoretic investigations common in the study of social networks. Topics will include random utility models, item-response theory, rank aggregation, centrality and ranking on graphs, and random graphs. The course is intended for Ph.D. students, but masters students interested in research topics are welcome. Recommended: 221, 226, CS161, or equivalents.
