AbstractSolve programming problems from previous ACM Programming Contests (see http://acm.uva.es/problemset/); learn and use efficient programming methods and algorithms.
ObjectiveThe objective of this course is to learn how to solve algorithmic problems given as descriptions in natural language, similar to those posed in ACM Programming Contests. This includes appropriate problem modeling, choice of suitable (combinatorial) algorithms, and their efficient implementation using C/C++ and the STL.
