Introduction to Algorithms: A Creative Approach 1st Edition
by Udi Manber
This book emphasizes the creative aspects of algorithm design by examining the steps used in the process of algorithm development. The heart of this creative process lies in an analogy between proving mathematical theorems by induction and designing combinatorial algorithms. The book contains hundreds of problems and examples. It is designed to enhance the reader's problem-solving abilities and understanding of the principles behind algorithm design.
The Algorithm Design Manual Paperback - 13 Oct 2010
by Steven S Skiena
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. Expanding on the first edition, the book now serves as the primary textbook of choice for algorithm design courses while maintaining its status as the premier practical reference guide to algorithms for programmers, researchers, and students.
The reader-friendly Algorithm Design Manual provides straightforward access to combinatorial algorithms technology, stressing design over-analysis. The first part, Techniques, provides accessible instruction on methods for designing and analyzing computer algorithms. The second part, Resources, is intended for browsing and reference and comprises the catalog of algorithmic resources, implementations, and an extensive bibliography.
How to Think About Algorithms 1st Edition, Kindle Edition
by Jeff Edmonds
This textbook, for a second- or third-year students of computer science, presents insights, notations, and analogies to help them describe and think about algorithms like an expert, without grinding through lots of formal proof. Solutions to many problems are provided to let students check their progress, while class-tested PowerPoint slides are on the web for anyone running the course. By looking at both the big picture and easy step-by-step methods for developing algorithms, the author guides students around the common pitfalls. He stresses paradigms such as loop invariants and recursion to unify a huge range of algorithms into a few meta-algorithms. The book fosters a deeper understanding of how and why each algorithm works. These insights are presented in a careful and clear way, helping students to think abstractly and preparing them for creating their own innovative ways to solve problems.
Algorithms in C++ Part 5: Graph Algorithms 3rd Edition, Kindle Edition
by Robert Sedgewick
The focus this time is on graph algorithms, which are increasingly critical for a wide range of applications, such as network connectivity, circuit design, scheduling, transaction processing, and resource allocation. In this book, Sedgewick offers the same successful blend of theory and practice that has made his work popular with programmers for many years. Christopher van Wyk and Sedgewick have developed concise new C++ implementations that both express the methods in a natural and direct manner and also can be used in real applications.
Algorithms in C++, Third Edition, Part 5: Graph Algorithms is the second book in Sedgewick's thoroughly revised and rewritten series. The first book, Parts 1-4, addresses fundamental algorithms, data structures, sorting, and searching. A forthcoming third book will focus on strings, geometry, and a range of advanced algorithms.
