On top of the [problems and exercises] posed at the MIT page, we also recommend the following exercises and problems from the book by Cormen et al (2nd edition). Exercises are shown in black, and problems (listed in the final section of every chapter) are shown in red color.


The course is self paced and consists of 12 [video lectures] from MIT Open CourseWare.
The [course material] has been developed by Prof Charles Leiserson and Prof Erik Demaine.


The underlying text book [CLRS] is the 2nd edition of "Introduction to Algorithms" by Thomas H. Cormen, Charles E. Leiserson, Ronald L. Rivest, and Clifford Stein.
Many copies of the book are available in our library (Informatik Bibliothek).
It is also easy to find electronic versions of the book on the web.
