Dinic's algorithm is a strongly polynomial algorithm for computing the maximum flow in a flow network, developed by Yefim A. Dinitz in 1970. It runs in O(|V|^2|E|) time and uses shortest augmenting paths, level graph and blocking flow concepts to achieve its performance.

This course explores the design and analysis of algorithms, algorithmic modelling techniques, and their efficiency. It aims to provide tools for designing and analyzing personal algorithms, using various analytical tools and frameworks. Some advanced topics not commonly covered in textbooks are also taught.
