Coverage is divided into two parts, the first being a general guide to techniques for the design and analysis of computer algorithms. Throughout, the emphasis is on good problem modelling, which is essential to get an algorithm to work. THE ALGORITHM DESIGN MANUAL comes with a CD-ROM that contains: * a complete hypertext version of the full printed book. In a mature ecosystem like Python, a lot of the time the right answer is just "pip install magiclib.

Finding the fastest route from your home to your holiday in Wales might be satisfying, but a computer scientist would want to know how to find the best route from anywhere to anywhere. If you want to use it as a course textbook then there are lots of exercises at the end of every chapter. The reader-friendly Algorithm Design Manual provides straightforward access to combinatorial algorithms technology, stressing design over analysis. It will not only serve as a valuable undergraduate textbook, but it will also become an irreplaceable reference guide for most professionals in the area.The book’s unique structure makes it more likely to be immediately useful to the practitioner who has problem to solve and wants to quickly make progress … . Each of the topics is treated in a readable informal style with lots of asides and accounts of personal experiences - ‘war stories’ in implementing algorithms. The text is very accessible to read and the pictures help to visualise and understand what's going on.

This newly expanded and updated second edition of the best-selling classic continues to take the "mystery" out of designing algorithms, and analyzing their efficacy and efficiency. Professor Skiena is also author of the popular Springer text, Programming Challenges: The Programming Contest Training Manual .For someone who's never taken CS101, this book an eye-opener into the hows and whys of basic data structures like linked lists, trees, hash tables, and arrays, as well as sorting techniques and more advanced practices like dynamic programming. For a decade, Steven Skiena's Algorithm Design Manual retained its title as the best and most comprehensive practical algorithm guide to help identify and solve problems. Unlike other algorithm books that I have the algorithms are written independent of any programming language.
