**0368428101 - Advanced Topics in
Data Structures, Spring 20/21**

**Haim
Kaplan, Thursdays 16-19**

**We will go through some beautiful data structures and algorithms,
starting from splay trees, online greedy, the geometric view of binary search
trees, and the dynamic optimality problem. Then we will move to dynamic tree,
flows, and interior point methods.**
