Aim of the course -
Last update: Maxová Jana RNDr. Ph.D. (08.06.2018)

Students will acquire the basic concepts of graph theory. They will learn to analyze various engineering tasks and solve them using known graph algorithms. They will then learn how to

recognize computationally hard tasks and gain insight into many of the problems solved by graph theory.
