  • Description

    The Algorithm Design Manual is the second edition of the classic book that deals with algorithm designs and their efficiency.

    Summary Of The Book

    A set of steps that leads to the desired result is known as an algorithm. Algorithms are well defined procedures that form an essential part of all computer programs. The structured steps of an algorithm first process the data and then lead to the desired result. So, an algorithm that produces the desired result in the least possible steps is considered to be the best algorithm design. The Algorithm Design Manual is a comprehensive manual on designing algorithms. It provides the basic concepts of designing algorithms as well as resources where the designer can look for an existing algorithm design.

    Designed for students as well as computer professionals, this book provides access to combinatorial algorithms technology. It is well organized into two sections: Techniques and Resources. The first section explores the fundamental basics of already available designs. It is a guide to the techniques employed for algorithm designs and provides an analysis of computer algorithms. It discusses algorithm related concepts such as backtracking, heuristics, data structures, dynamic programming, and depth-first search.

    The second section of the book provides extensive coverage of resources. Here the students get to know how to locate existing algorithm designs according to specific problems. It consists of a full-fledged catalog comprising various resources for algorithm, implementation, and a comprehensive bibliography. There are a large number of algorithms that can be used to design any sort of application. An algorithm designer needs to be aware of how to use these repositories and this book provides that knowledge.

    The second edition of The Algorithm Design Manual comes loaded with additional tutorial material and exercises as compared to the previous edition. This updated and revised edition can serve not just as a textbook for students but also as a reference guide for researchers and programmers. There are various new additions in the second edition such as a catalog of 75 common algorithmic problems. It offers new case studies that give examples from the real world.

    The other topics covered here are sorting and searching, weighted graph algorithms, and graph traversal. It provides complete online support for lectures and the website component is completely improved to include lecture slides. Moreover, the author has provided up-to-date links for the best algorithm implementations available in Java, C, and C++. The Algorithm Design Manual is used as a textbook at undergraduate level and as a reference text to prepare for job interviews in IT industry.

    Excellent Collection of Algorithms. Hitchkiker's Guide.

    The book is awesome, some eye opening solutions and best complement to Introduction to Algorithms. Although the book s not concise, but pretty straight to read. The Interview problem section within chapters is so informative, no book can beat that. Flipkart services while delivering the book were not much fast as in case of other books. One more thing about the book I liked most it gives references to some of the best existing implementations of algorithm in open source applications.

    Good book for algorithm design

    This is a good book on algorithm design. The author has compiled an exhaustive resource for all topics with references to online material, pointers to implementations and much more. The war stories are a novel concept by the author to throw light on the stories behind some of the great algorithms.
    But this text is more useful as a reference and a companion book, not for beginners who want to begin their foray into algorithm design. I also feel that the writing style lacks a flow, a smoothness...

    Best book for understanding application of Algorithms

    Flipkart delivery was very quick and i got a nice copy of the book. The book lived up to the expectations. Though soft copy of this book is freely available online still i purchased because it is a must-read.

    Just Awesome!!!! Thrilled!

    A really great book on algorithms. Reading this after 'Introduction to Algorithms by CLRS' would help a lot. Not recommended for beginners.
    Provides good amount of theory than code which is much helpful since for good programmers explanations is more valuable.
    The war stories are awesome. They give step-by-step walkthrough on how the problem was solved. The thought process involved is explained very clearly.

    A must book on shelf for real programmers.

    Perfect!

    This is really nice book, Its nice to have if you are into Competitive Programming and it does describes algorithms in simplest and interesting way. Even If you have read Cormen , try this one too, You wont be disappointed.

    Programmers who wanna Compete

    Yes, just as the title, this book fits completely for programmers who want to start off with competitive programming! Not as extensive as coreman, but one can always find algorithms online. Skiena lists out beautiful War Stories that make you realise how beautiful and close to real-life the world of algorithms are!

    good one

    liked it a lot
    skiena is a good expositor of intricate techniques
    additionally also get a grab on Problems on Algorithms by ian parberry
    after all practice makes u good not just reading :-)

    Great collection of algorithms !!!

    This is an awesome book with very good collection of algorithms. Also some of the very known algorithms are solved in a very beautiful way. Also the style of describing problem is very good. Most of the problems are described in context of the real life problems. You will love to read this book if you love algorithms.
    But this book is not recommended for beginners. It assumes you know the basic algorithms already.

    Excellent book ..

    This book is meant for those who have some prior knowledge of data structure, mathematics (prob,combination ...etc). Explains well the design techniques and language is easy. Chapters on backtracking, graph algorithm, greedy and dynamic programing are excellent and teaches you all these in easy way... But read it only if you all-ready had taken algorithm and DS course other-wise it will eat your time....

    The Algorithm Design Manual - Skiena

    Nice collection of algorithmic problems and references. If you have basic insights into algorithms, start reading related material in the book. It provides various implementation methods, complexities, references and related problems.

    Pick one topic and implement them. Just rush to read the content of the book won't help. Referring your implementation with the library code will improve your understanding.

    Great book, but not recommended for beginners. To be reserved on professional's desk.
