CRE 515: Advanced Algorithms (Spring 2010)
                       Korea University 

                Instructor: Dongwon Lee, Ph.D.
              PIKE Research Group @ Penn State
___________________________________________________________________

This is the second-half of the CRE 515 course, being co-taught by
Prof. Jaewoo Kang at Korea University and Prof. Dongwon Lee at Penn
State University. While the first-half of the course covers general
materials in a typical advanced algorithm course (e.g., graph theory,
P vs. NP, greedy|approximate|randomized algorithms), the second-half
deals with more specialized algorithms on various problems in Data
Management, as shown below.
