The pseudocode employed throughout is absolutely wretched, at times especially in later chapters binding up and abstracting away subsidiary computational processes not with actual predefined functions but english descriptions of modifications thereof -- decide whether you're writing co An essential, well-written reference, and one it's quite possible to read through several times, picking up new info each time.
The pseudocode employed throughout is absolutely wretched, at times especially in later chapters binding up and abstracting away subsidiary computational processes not with actual predefined functions but english descriptions of modifications thereof -- decide whether you're writing code samples for humans or humans-simulating-automata, please, and stick to one. This habit wouldn't be so obnoxious, save that several although, admittedly, rare "inline modifications of declaration" seem to require modifications of definition which would subsequently invalidate previous running-time or -space guarantees.
I know the authors have released an updated edition; I do not yet own it, and could contrast with assurance only the two editions' coverage of string-matching algorithms.
That minor nit having been aired, CLR1 belongs in undergraduate curricula and on pros' bookshelves.
Its illustrations, in particular, are highly effective and bring several fundamental algorithms to life better than I've seen elsewhere; its treatment of the Master Method is the best I've seen with an undergraduate audience.
Please, just once, let someone with the teaching tal Final exam: Please, just once, let someone with the teaching talent of Sal Khan of Khan Academy write a textbook about math. Just once.
Why is that so hard? I'm not holding my breath, no way. This will never happen because academic math people are writing the books. Know who would be a perfect algorithms textbook author?
Someone that has to struggle through learning the subject matter just like a student. I'd download that author's book. This one, though Feb 08, Brad rated it really liked it. The textbook on algorithms. It does not do a very good job of teaching how to design algorithms, but it is an authoritative catalog of algorithms for a wide variety of situations.
May 03, Sheikh rated it it was amazing. This is an excellent book for software engineers and students of computer science and engineering who want to have a good understanding of algorithms. Apr 29, Wouter rated it liked it. It has ben 14 years since I touched a math-oriented theoretical work like this, and that hurt a lot while slogging through this textbook. After graduating a lot of the software engineering skills you pick up are geared towards practicality.
I literally forgot some mathematical terms I had to look up again. Sadly, trying to understand it's lemma's with the help of the appendices is not doable as they are even heavier than the things they try to explain.
Besides that problematic point, it's an exc It has ben 14 years since I touched a math-oriented theoretical work like this, and that hurt a lot while slogging through this textbook. Besides that problematic point, it's an excellent guide but not an introduction! Some extra background is provided along with alternatives that amused me after implementing the default solution. If you're not studying CS or you have but it was a long time ago, there might be better things to read.
But it's still worth it. May 23, Israel Dee Beloved rated it really liked it. Good book. Insgesamt kann ich das Buch nur empfehlen. Es ist selbst gebraucht so teuer, dass man sich einmal mehr mit der Bibliothek der Uni behelfen muss. Damit kommen wir zum 2. Semester brauchen wird. View 2 comments.
The book gives a solid foundation of common non-trivial algorithms and data structures. It all comes with nice pseudocode, detailed walk-throughs and complexity analysis along with worst case, average case and amortized complexity. Personally I'd prefer to see the material in much more compact form, covering more of topics and more advanced or tricky algorithms and data structures.
However, when something isn't clear, the detailed walk-throughs really help. Also, the exercises provided are inva The book gives a solid foundation of common non-trivial algorithms and data structures.
Also, the exercises provided are invaluable. I'd say is a must-read for every software engineer and computer scientist. If you aren't already familiar with the content from other sources, it's really worth investing a couple of years in it: Oct 30, Michael rated it did not like it. This is one of the worst college books I have ever used. The examples in the book are severely lacking the needed information to answer the questions in which you are forced to use outside resources aka other Data Structure books to find the info to solve their problems.
The book is unorganized and bounces around like the authors have ADHD.

Apr 18, Mohammad Samiul Islam rated it it was amazing Shelves: This books is amazing. It's a bit hard for beginners, but then again, it's one of those books which you always have to come back to.
Each time you come back, you learn something new. The exercises themselves have tons of stuff hidden in them. You need to be patient and learn slowly. Don't try to gobble everything up.
If you let go of your fear, and actually make an effort to learn something from it, you can learn loads. I learned Network Flow algorithm by reading this book. It took me few days, b This books is amazing. It took me few days, but I did manage to learn the algorithm myself by reading just this book. Jan 10, Harshil Lodhi rated it really liked it Shelves: A book that one should definitely read once in the computer science career.
It gives a mathematical and in depth look at how to understand algorithms and data structures, their time and space complexities and its proofs. It could be a little hard, complex and lengthy for those who don't like in depth mathematics or those who just want to understand the DS and Algo at application level. It is a classic and available for free so one should definitely read it.
This is the definitive book on algorithms. Apr 20, Kaung Htet Zaw rated it it was amazing. One of the best algorithm textbooks out there. Always my go-to book for algorithm reference. May 15, Antonis Maronikolakis rated it it was amazing.
This book kick-started my love for algorithm design. Not only is it an in-depth introduction to algorithms, providing a complete guide on the basics, it is also expertly written. The concepts are laid out in an intuitive and easy to follow manner, while also going into more detail for those who want to learn more.
I highly suggest this book. Offers a very thorough and clean introduction to the basics of algorithm design, while also going very in depth in later chapters. It also includes an Append This book kick-started my love for algorithm design. It also includes an Appendix for Math stuff, which has come in handy many times I need a refresh in memory. The last chapter presents a wide range of topics, from Linear Programming to String Matching.
A particularly good read is the Approximation Algorithms, which presents some very interesting concepts and problems. There is also a chapter for Graph Algorithms where the authors go in depth on some of the most well known such algorithms.
Very interesting read that helps get a better feel of how the algorithms work. There is also a chapter for Advanced Data Structures, which offers a very detailed view of some of the lesser known structures, like Fibonacci Heaps. Also a very interesting read, although it does become a bit hard to follow at times. One big plus for this book is the exercises at the end of every chapter. Even though they do not have any solutions although you can easily find them online , they are very interesting and also very helpful in understanding the concepts presented in the chapter.
This is a book every Computer Scientist should have in his collection. May 19, Juan rated it liked it. The content is good but I feel it's more of a reference book than an introductory one. The content the book covers is very broad. Covering almost everything you expect but if you are a begginer you may need a book that is more extensive on the explanations.
Nonetheless it includes a very good apendix. I did not read the whole book as I feel is more of a reference and I don't think this book should be anyone first read on algorithims. You can also read 4th Edition of this book online for free here 3. Skiena This is another excellent book on computer algorithms that go over a ton of algorithms with a lot of code as well.
What I especially like about the book is where he actually gives examples of where he used the algorithms or variations thereof in practice; it really helps you see the class es of problems that a particular algorithm or family of algorithms can be used for. The code is in C, but it's not very esoteric and it's easy to follow. I had also been out of school for a while and this helped me get up to speed quite quickly on a number of graph algorithms. I've had this for almost 10 years now and still look at it from time to time 4.
Algorithm for Interviews Algorithm for Interview by Adnan Aziz is a must-read book on algorithms, written in terms of keeping programming interview in mind.
The cover itself shows how interesting the book could be if you look closely the image on the cover is drawn with thumbnails of famous people, and the book explains how you can develop such algorithms.
Interesting, isn't it? Well, I like this book because of its approach and objective, sometimes learning the same thing with different object helps to understand it better. Algorithm in Nutshell O'Reilly's Algorithms, in a Nutshell, is a very good book to learn programming algorithms, especially for Java programmers.
It describes the algorithms with a focus on implementing them and without heavy mathematics used in classic books on algorithms.
They also have benchmarks to provide proofs of the theoretical performance of the algorithms. In short, one of the best book to learn algorithms for programmers. It's not really an introduction to algorithms and more suited to experienced programmers. It's more about algorithm design for developers familiar with the basic algorithms.
You should start with the Introduction of Algorithm book or Algorithms by Robert Sedgewick and then continue with this book.
