The Analysis of Algorithms online course familiarises students with calculating the computational complexity of algorithms. The training also covers function generation, recurrences, telescoping, and more concepts related to the scientific study of algorithm performance. Candidates learn about real asymptotics, symbolic methods, and basic structures like words, permutations, strings, trees, and mappings, through the programme.
The Coursera Analysis of Algorithms programme is 100% online and free course. It consists of pre-recorded video lectures, pop quizzes, readings, assignments, and practical exercises across a nine-week curriculum. Robert Sedgewick, who is currently the William O. Baker Professor of Computer Science at Princeton, will be your instructor.
The Online Analysis of Algorithms training course is an advanced-level programme offered in collaboration with Princeton University. Candidates will need approximately 20 hours to finish this course. Besides, you will get English subtitles for the video lectures and flexible deadlines to learn at ease. Since this is free training; candidates will not receive a certification.

How it helps
After the Coursera Analysis of Algorithms training programme, candidates will also master the art of solving tricky combinatorial problems.
This course provides candidates with an advanced-level understanding of generating functions, solving recurrences, Catalan numbers, asymptotics, words, trees, mapping, strings, and tries. All the features, including quizzes, readings, pre-recorded videos, and practice exercises in the course are available for free.
The Analysis of Algorithms course does not carry any university credit for Princeton University. But, candidates can check about the credit system with their institution.
There’s as such no technical requirement other than a steady internet connection since it is a 100% online course. Candidates will be able to access the videos from their desktop computer, smartphone, or tablet.
No, since this is an entirely free course, Coursera will not provide a certification. Also, candidates will not receive any certificate, credential, or report from Princeton University, according to their policy.
The Analysis of Algorithms training course by Coursera is entirely online and free of cost. Candidates can opt for self-paced learning and reschedule the deadlines conveniently. The instructors at Coursera provide candidates with a comprehensive understanding of the Analysis of algorithms concepts.
