INTRODUCTION TO ALGORITHMS 3ED (English) 3rd Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.835

Introduction To Algorithms is one of the most commonly referred texts when it comes to algorithms, and is used as a textbook in several colleges.

Summary Of The Book

The contemporary study of all computer algorithms can be understood clearly by perusing the contents of Introduction To Algorithms. Although this covers most of the important aspects of algorithms, the concepts have been detailed in a lucid manner, so as to be palatable to readers at all levels of skill.

Introduction To Algorithms has a number of chapters, each of which is self-contained, as it contains an algorithm, followed by a design technique. There is also an area of application or a related topic, so that students can find out the practical implications of the algorithm in question.

There is an introduction unit, where the foundations of algorithms are covered. At all points in the book, the jargon and technical information are presented so as to be readable by anyone who has dabbled to some extent in programming. The foundation unit seeks to enlighten the reader regarding the role algorithms play in modern computer programming and the growth of functions, among other things.

Introduction To Algorithms then moves on to Sorting and Order Statistics, introducing the concepts of Heapsort and Quicksort, and also explaining how to sort in real time. A number of other topics such as Design and Analysis and Graph Algorithms are covered in the book. One feature to note in this book is that two new chapters have been added in this third edition, one on multithreaded algorithms and another on Van Emde Boas trees.

Introduction To Algorithms is a popular book that has sold more than twenty million copies in total. In fact, it is so famous that it is commonly referred to as ‘CLRS’, after the initials of the authors. The book includes new problems and exercises in this edition.

Excellent book

This is a complete book (for undergraduate level), like a bible for algorithms. With page number running into four digits, it's a very detailed and descriptive book, which makes it an excellent learning resource for beginners.

A good grip of mathematics will be of great help. However, most of what is required is put into the Appendix, so you won't have to go hunting for a piece of maths.

So i would say that if u feel u r slow in Data structures, U go for this book "Intro to algorithms".... This book will turn u into the master of DS.
Thanks to the flipcart team for the delivery of this book on the exact date.....

Good Math is required - Should be patient - Very detail description

I read 1st part of the book (as a beginner who knew almost (not totally) about algorithms). Here is what I felt

* Great description of algorithms and analysis.

* You will love the pseudo code

* Good math skills are needed. Certain algorithms are just thrown at readers as exercises - Don't skip them

* For self learners: Should take a year to complete (approx, might take more). You got to be patient to cover all areas - especially exercises.

* As a text book? : Yeah! Follow your class lecturers, refer the topic in this book at home, get the exercises done, you are King!

* This book talks about lots of topics which generally aren't covered in many books. That's why its difficult to understand, a big 1300 pgs.

* IN BRIEF:
(If you got good math, enough time and good tutor or guide, get this one)

The Bible of Algorithms

This book is literally the Bible of algorithms. Anyone wishing to call themselves a computer programmer needs to have at least a basic amount of knowledge about the creation, evaluation and implementation of algorithms, and this book more than provides that. It is used in universities all around the world. Although most of its matter may be outside the syllabus of Indian colleges, it is extremely useful while dealing with hard Computer Science subjects like Analysis & Design of Algorithms, Data Structures & Algorithms, Computer Graphics, Robotics & Artificial Intelligence, Syste...

"The" Algorithm book for Computer / IT Engineers !

Book Delivery : I received the book 2 days ahead of the stipulated delivery date. So Kudos to Flipkart Delivery Services. The book was nicely packed, and obviously included a funny bookmark provided with all book purchases from flipkart.

The current edition of the book costs Rs 995/- and has 1292 numbered pages + 20 roman indexed pages = 1312 pages. Every inch of this book is same as the previous edition, which costs around 525/-.
I had ordered the current edition ( Rs. 995/- , which I bought for Rs. 451/- after a nice 54.% discount ).

I had ordered the current edition ( Rs. 995/- , which I bought for Rs. 451/- after a nice 54.% discount ).
Unfortunately, I received the previous edition (Rs. 525/-). I contacted the customer care, and received the replacement within a week. The replacement was slightly damaged, but that was probably because of mishandling in their warehouse or something, nothing worth worrying though... So I am pretty satisfied here as well.

Review : This book is the best algo book around. No complains about the content of the book. I have still not yet read a lot from this book, but this is the book recommended for my Algorithms paper (IT dept.). The book is totally worth every penny it costs !
Keep in mind that this book is very thick.. So don't freak out !
It of-course has a very mathematical approach, so it has tons of maths.. ( I really freaked out there :D ).

All in all, the book is totally worth the purchase. It is a great book !
