Thank you for your response to my previous post. I checked your feedback and it looks like the optimal time for the lecture is Friday evening. So the first lecture will be on September 11 at 18:00 MSK (15:00 UTC).
In the first lecture we'll start with the basics. We will discuss what an algorithm is, and how to measure its efficiency. Also we will discuss merge sort algorithm, and illustrate how to use this theory to analyse its complexity.
You can check this calendar for the schedule of my streams.
