Objective

After the course, the students should be familiar with the basics of the theory of graphs necessary to formulate combinatorial problems on graphs. They should know how to solve the most frequently occurring problems using efficient algorithms. They will know about some heuristic approaches to intractable problems. They will learn the basics of linear programming and the theory of games and their applications in business.
