About this session

Great Learning brings you this live session on "Greedy Algorithm Explained". In this session, you will first understand the Greedy approach. You will understand how intuitive these algorithms are and how we try to find the optimal solution at each step thus reaching it. some of the classic greedy problems are activity selection problem, colouring of the graph, job sequencing problem, shortest superstring, Huffman coding, single-source shortest paths, etc. Then we will talk about one classic greedy problem wherein you will first understand the problem statement and then its algorithm. You will also understand how we try to find an optimal solution at each step once you have a complete understanding of the algorithm with every constraint and why we are doing them. Finally, we will implement the algorithm using Java and understand how we make decisions based on the information we have.
