The primary topics in this part of the specialization are: shortest paths (Bellman-Ford, Floyd-Warshall, Johnson), NP-completeness and what it means for the algorithm designer, and strategies for coping with computationally intractable problems (analysis of heuristics, local search).
The Leland Stanford Junior University, commonly referred to as Stanford University or Stanford, is an American private research university located in Stanford, California on an 8,180-acre (3,310 ha) campus near Palo Alto, California, United States.

SHORTEST PATHS REVISITED, NP-COMPLETE PROBLEMS AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT THEM からの人気レビュー
Really happy to finish this specialization and I will still study algorithms in the future.
I am very confident in the skills I learned. I have read some books on algorithms but this course makes the application so clear regardless of your programing language.
A really well-crafted specialization. Has something for everyone from a beginner to an advanced Computer Science student.
This is the most challenging course in this specialization. Assignments as well as test questions require good amount of thinking.
One of the best courses I did on Coursera.
Algorithms are the heart of computer science, and the subject has countless practical applications as well as intellectual depth. This specialization is an introduction to algorithms for learners with at least a little programming experience. The specialization is rigorous but emphasizes the big picture and conceptual understanding over low-level implementation and mathematical details. After completing this specialization, you will be well-positioned to ace your technical interviews and speak fluently about algorithms with other programmers and computer scientists.
