Algorithm Design Approaches to Optimization Problems

Olga Lepsky, Boston University
Monday May 2, 2016
Hariri Seminar Room, 3:00PM

Abstract: In the talk we will consider the famous knapsack optimization problem, and the three algorithmic approaches for solving it: exhaustive search, greedy, and dynamic programming. We will decide which of these algorithms guarantee to produce the optimal solution, and compare their time complexity.
