Product Description

Review

.,."the book is an algorithm implementation treasure trove, and putting all of these implementations in one place was no small feat. The list of implementations, an extensive bibliography, and the CD-ROM make the book an invaluable resource for everyone interested in the subject." --ACM Computing Reviews

8 of 12 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 6 Oct 1997
Format: Hardcover
As an unbiased reviewer :^) I feel that this is the most useful algorithms text written for the real-world algorist. The CD-ROM contains a wealth of information (including the entire repository of implementations found on the affiliated website, and hours of audio lectures from the author's own algorithms course). The catalog of algorithms is also invaluable.

5 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 6 May 1998
Format: Hardcover
This book has some excellent information about writing and selecting algorithms, step by step, as well as plenty of pointers to outside information. Chapter 8 in particular is an invaluable reference for quickly implementing a solution to any of many varied problems.
However, the textual explanations are sometimes confusing, with significant "jumps" between concepts that could throw off the beginning algorist. Furthermore, the author discounts entire paradigms of computer programming, giving the text a biased and unbalanced feel.

Format: Hardcover
I read this book whilst on holiday (had my laptop with me, but managed not to turn it on).

The first part is a gentle intoduction to algorithms. There's little or no mathematics, but the concepts are well covered. The second part is the catalog, which seemed to live up to its name.
