Some books on algorithms are rigorous but incomplete; others cover masses of material but lack rigor. Introduction to Algorithms uniquely combines rigor and comprehensiveness. The book covers a broad range of algorithms in depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers. Each chapter is relatively self-contained and can be used as a unit of study. The algorithms are described in English and in a pseudocode designed to be readable by anyone who has done a little programming. The explanations have been kept elementary without sacrificing depth of coverage or mathematical rigor.The first edition became a widely used text in universities worldwide as well as the standard reference for professionals. The second edition featured new chapters on the role of algorithms, probabilistic analysis and randomized algorithms, and linear programming. The third edition has been revised and updated throughout. It includes two completely new chapters, on van Emde Boas trees and multithreaded algorithms, substantial additions to the chapter on recurrence (now called "Divide-and-Conquer"), and an appendix on matrices. It features improved treatment of dynamic programming and greedy algorithms and a new notion of edge-based flow in the material on flow networks. Many new exercises and problems have been added for this edition. As of the third edition, this textbook is published exclusively by the MIT Press.
Mark Allen Weiss
Mark Allen Weiss' innovative approach to algorithms and data structures teaches the simultaneous development of sound analytical and programming skills for the advanced data structures course. Readers learn how to reduce time constraints and develop programs efficiently by analyzing the feasibility of an algorithm before it is coded. The C++ language is brought up-to-date and simplified, and the Standard Template Library is now fully incorporated throughout the text. This Third Edition also features significantly revised coverage of lists, stacks, queues, and trees and an entire chapter dedicated to amortized analysis and advanced data structures such as the Fibonacci heap. Known for its clear and friendly writing style, Data Structures and Algorithm Analysis in C++ is logically organized to cover advanced data structures topics from binary heaps to sorting to NP-completeness. Figures and examples illustrating successive stages of algorithms contribute to Weiss' careful, rigorous and in-depth analysis of each type of algorithm.
