Introduction to Algorithms

Introduction to Algorithms

This title covers a broad range of algorithms in depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers. Each chapter is relatively self-contained and can be used as a unit of study. The algorithms are described in English and in a pseudocode designed to be readable by anyone who has done a little programming. The explanations have been kept elementary without sacrificing depth of coverage or mathematical rigor.

    Introduction to Algorithms Reviews

  • Shawn Morel

    What a terrible book. Though it's the cornerstone of many CS undergrad algorithm courses, this book fails in every way. In almost every way, Dasgupta and Papadimitriou's "Algorithms" is a much better ...

  • Khaled Alhourani

    An essential book for every programmer, you can't read this kind of book on bus, you need to fully constraint while reading it. The exercises after each chapter are very important to fully understand ...

  • Saharvetes

    Rather pointless to review this, as in most places this is the algorithms textbook. It's a good book that covers all the major algorithms in sufficient detail with every step clearly spelled out for t...

  • Alex

    While searching for a Bible of algorithms, I of course quickly gravitated towards Knuth's Art of Computer Programming series. It's thousands of pages long — a magnum opus still in progress; how cou...

  • Nick Black

    An essential, well-written reference, and one it's quite possible to read through several times, picking up new info each time. That having been said....this book never, I felt, adequately communicate...

  • Josh Davis

    I've been reading CLRS on and off for years. I read bits at a time and have been picking and choosing chapters to read and reread. I must say that without a doubt this is the best textbook I have ever...

  • Koen Crolla

    Some people just really enjoy typing, I guess. Not so much communicating, though: I was already pretty familiar with almost all of the algorithms and data structures discussed (the bit on computationa...

  • Arif

    Well, technically I didn't finish reading all the chapters in the book, but at least I've read most of it. The topics in the book is well explained with concise example. But sometimes, I need to find ...

    Algorithms, which perform some sequence of mathematical operations, form the core of computer programming. Intended as a text for computer programming courses, especially undergraduate courses in data...

    Final exam: completed. This damn textbook: ignored from here on out.Whenever I look at it now, all I can think of is Alex in Clockwork Orange: "Eggiwegs! I want to SMASH THEM!" This book did not help ...
