Held in part by coauthor Charles Leiserson. One of the best algorithm textbooks out there. The descriptions focus on the aspects of the algorithm itself, its mathematical properties, and emphasize efficiency. I must say that without a doubt this is the best textbook I have ever read. A tough but necessary read--the best I've found on algorithms. All of the pseudocode is completely golden and thoroughly tested. Introduction to Algorithms is a book on computer programming by Thomas H. Cormen, Charles E. Leiserson, Ronald L. Rivest, and Clifford Stein. This habit wouldn't be so obnoxious, save that several (although, admittedly, rare) "inline modifications of, I've been reading CLRS on and off for years. In my opinion an essential book, one of those that definitely deserves to be on the shelf of every programmer. Always my go-to book for algorithm reference. [5], The first edition of the textbook did not include Stein as an author, and thus the book became known by the initialism CLR. [4], In the preface, the authors write about how the book was written to be comprehensive and useful in both teaching and professional environments. Refresh and try again. This title covers a broad range of algorithms in depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers. With the second edition, the predominant color of the cover changed to green, causing the nickname to be shortened to just "The Big Book (of Algorithms).

If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. p. cm. That having been said....this book never, I felt, adequately communicated THE LOVE. Without doubts read this book will make you a better programmer in the long run. Rather pointless to review this, as in most places this is, While searching for a Bible of algorithms, I of course quickly gravitated towards, An essential, well-written reference, and one it's quite possible to read through several times, picking up new info each time. Clearly presented, mathematically rigorous, and yet approachable even for the math-averse, this title sets a high standard for a textbook and reference to the best algorithms for solving a wide … Read this, seriously. It has ben 14 years since I touched a math-oriented theoretical work like this, and that hurt a lot while slogging through this textbook. The algorithms are described in English and in a pseudocode designed to be readable by anyone who has done a little programming. paper) 1. Not only is it an in-depth introduction to algorithms, providing a complete guide on the basics, it is also expertly written. The topics in the book is well explained with concise example. I could not recommend it anymore for anyone that wishes to learn about data structures and algorithms well. The book has been widely used as the textbook for algorithms courses at many universities[1] and is commonly cited as a reference for algorithms in published papers, with over 10,000 citations documented on CiteSeerX. The book in itself is an outstanding one, very organized, focused and small chapters makes it easier to understand the algorithms inside it. Very well structured, easy to read, wit. Quirks of languages and implementations change and are too varied to incorporate into this study, so it's the right choice to abstract them out. Start by marking “Introduction to Algorithms” as Want to Read: Error rating book. Computer algorithms. I guess that's fine because it is indeed an "introductory" book. Introduction to Algorithms is a book on computer programming by Thomas H. Cormen, Charles E. Leiserson, Ronald L. Rivest, and Clifford Stein.
