Book Description

13 Jun 2013 013284737X 978-0132847377 4

Data Structures and Algorithm Analysis in C++ is an advanced algorithms book that bridges the gap between traditional CS2 and Algorithms Analysis courses.

As the speed and power of computers increases, so does the need for effective programming and algorithm analysis. By approaching these skills in tandem, Mark Allen Weiss teaches readers to develop well-constructed, maximally efficient programs using the C++ programming language.

This book explains topics from binary heaps to sorting to NP-completeness, and dedicates a full chapter to amortized analysis and advanced data structures and their implementation. Figures and examples illustrating successive stages of algorithms contribute to Weiss’ careful, rigorous and in-depth analysis of each type of algorithm.

About the Author

Mark Allen Weiss is Professor and Associate Director for the School of Computing and Information Sciences at Florida International University. He is also currently serving as both Director of Undergraduate Studies and Director of Graduate Studies. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from the Cooper Union in 1983, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Princeton University in 1987, working under Bob Sedgewick. He has been at FIU since 1987 and was promoted to Professor in 1996. His interests include data structures, algorithms, and education. He is most well-known for his highly-acclaimed Data Structures textbooks, which have been used for a generation by roughly a million students.

Professor Weiss is the author of numerous publications in top-rated journals and was recipient of the University’s Excellence in Research Award in 1994. In 1996 at FIU he was the first in the world to teach Data Structures using the Java programming language, which is now the de facto standard. From 1997-2004 he served as a member of the Advanced Placement Computer Science Development Committee, chairing the committee from 2000-2004. The committee designed the curriculum and wrote the AP exams that were taken by 20,000 high school students annually.

In addition to his Research Award in 1994, Professor Weiss is also the recipient of the University’s Excellence in Teaching Award in 1999 and the School of Computing and Information Science Excellence in Teaching Award (2005) and Excellence in Service Award (2007).

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect for QUICKLY learning algorithms with c++11 but you should be somewhat fluent in c++11 26 Dec 2013
By Kirill Igumenshchev - Published on Amazon.com
My first review. I just had to defend this awesome book.
other reviews came from people who should study art history and work as analysts, actuaries, or web developers (the new car salesmen) instead of doing coding in high performance languages. if you wanna ride a 200+hp sport bike, learn how to drag knees instead of complaining about a stiff suspension.
this book is not to teach you c++ but to teach you algorithms. you need to be fluent in c++. at least look at stl and boost programming techniques.
reading this book is like learning from an old master who skips obvious details but says the important stuff and guides you quickly.

now if you are the right person, this book makes you feel awesome. why? because it's the only book, where you can learn algorithms and data structures while learning all the nice C++11 details that you can live without. there are great books on algorithms (like the free vazirani's algorithms or elements of programming) and there are decent books about c++ (bjarne's pp). it's also pretty cool to see c++11 in the wild -- just going through the code is fun. so yeah, this book makes learning algo and ds for c++ really quick -- you can just code the examples.

this book has basic and advance topics, has code and some comments. with help of wikipedia and stack overflow, you can fill in the details. what else do you need? it was the best way i found to learn how to write an stl-like container (book's List chapter for example).

If not all the bad vibe from the wussies, i'd give the book 4 stars but i need to shift the average rating a bit, so I give it 5. the biggest downside is there are NO public SOLUTIONS !!!! the author should've given solution to at least some problems. There is no way I'd take 4 month course on this stuff; it can be learned in 3-4 weeks. (you can find leaked solutions for the 3rd edition though)

Picked up the book for a preview to next semester's class. What I have seen so far is a decent introduction.

Great book for DS beginners
Has lots of code to use for examples. No complaints
Just like any book their can be some confusing things but they explain well

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the worst 23 Dec 2013
By H. S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I did not particularly care for the writing style or layout of this book. The topics jumped around a lot and the explanations of various concepts were kind of vague.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst textbook EVER! 23 Oct 2013
By Marc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have been programming in Java and C++ for a few years now and really thought that my class in algorithms and data structures would be a great addition to my programming skills, however, this book is so incomprehensible that even my instructor is lost! The author has no concept of presenting the material for students to understand. Topics run together without sufficient explanation. The source code within the chapters doesn't even come close to compiling without extensive modification, and you have to come up with your own main function, header files, and tests. I only have 6 weeks left in this semester and I have yet to complete even a single program from this book. Fortunately my instructor admits that this is the worst book he has ever read and is grading us extremely liberally. I am so unprepared for the advanced algorithm and data structures class that I am going to have to retake this class with a different textbook. Thanks a lot Mark Weiss!
