Shelves: partially-read Would definitely recommend this to somebody trying to revisit or strengthen their fundamentals in algorithms. It focuses more on design principles used by algorithms rather than the algorithms themselves. Probably not the best as a reference though. Sep 07, Li Zhan rated it really liked it Good selection of topics in good organization and order!
Too thick! Can be more succinct! May 19, Antonis Maronikolakis rated it it was amazing A great read for newcomers and more knowledgable readers alike. The first three chapters introduce the basic concepts of algorithm design and graphs, getting an inexperienced reader up to date with the knowledge required for the most advanced stuff later on.
Those advanced desing concepts are explained in simple terms except a few sections here and there that get bogged down in math and notation that everyone can follow without much hassle. The main algorithmic techniques are presented in A great read for newcomers and more knowledgable readers alike. Those chapters offer very intuitive introductions to the subjects, and as they progress, they take on bigger challenges that are still presented in a neat way.
Another cool feature is the tie-in with real problems. The reader not only reads about the theory, but is also shown how to solve algorithmic problems. The methodology presented in those chapters can be easily used to solve a wide range of problems. The greatest plus of the book is the solved exercises it presents. At the end of every chapter it offers detailed solutions to problems, so the reader can really understand how to go about solving the problems on their own.
On top of that, the unsolved exercises come in varied difficulties, from tame to very challenging. All in all, I highly suggest this book to aspiring Computer Scientists.
