Introduction To Algorithms (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.5174

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, and substantial additions to the chapter on recurrences (now called "Divide-and-Conquer"). 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.

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.

This is a great book, which is further solidified by the fact that it is used as a textbook for MIT (Massachusetts, USA) Undergraduate Course 'Introduction to Algorithms'.

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" 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 !

Mandatory book

This is a very good book for computer sciences students or anyone who is interested in understanding the algorithms. Descriptions are self explanatory and exercise problems are very challenging. Nice packing and timely delivery by Flipkart (View complete review)
