  • Description

    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.

    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 le...

    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, Da...

    Pirated/Fake product.

    I had faith on flipkart. I have been buying products for so long from this portal.But all the expectations were shattered today when i received the book.
    The book is clearly not genuine as it lacks the hologram sticker. I compared this book from the one that my friend had and it is worse in every aspect. The texts printed are not clearly visible which many graphs and texts missing. The page quality has also been compromised. I am enraged and am willing to sue flipkart on this matter, selling ...

    Cannot be better

    I would not mention any thing about the product coz everyone knows this is a world famous publication and is taught worldwide. Only suggestion to user is to read this book in parallel with the video lectures on MIT website ( these are free lectures) This is gonna be a deadly combination :) this book will be a lot easier to learn with those video lecture .

    Thanks to flipkart for the timely delivery :)

    Expected a better product

    Poor Print Quality. A lot of the pages had very faint print, hard to read. Paper quality also poor. Wouldn't have bought this from a store, a second hand would do better.

    Don't waste your money

    Very poor quality. Looks like all the pages are Xerox of the original book and then binded. It's only 5 days and books pages are tearing apart. Please sell original books.

    Liked it.

    This is a great book for algorithms. I count on this book for all my algorithm requirements. I was just wondering, if this book is an introduction then what the complete algorithm book would be. :D

    The exercises given in the book are quite important for some algorithms are covered through exercises. The pseudo-code used in the book is very easy to understand. Even if one is new to programming one can understand the code (the pseudo-code is not language specific), but prior programming experi...

    excellent book but not recommended for self learners.

    this book is amazing specially for computer science grads who wants to level UP their knowledge and skills in programming and other stuff, but then...nothing great comes easy. you will often find yourself struggling in understanding even the basic concepts, forget about concepts, even some terms are not described properly (the book is written by MIT lecturers for post grads so.. you know what i mean right?)
    All in all buy this book only if you-
    1) have a great teacher at your college who can ...

    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 (Mas...

    Low quality printing

    The print quality is very poor. The pages were stuck to each other and I had to manually cut them apart with a knife. The ink is often not visible on many pages. This quality was not expected from flipkart.

    Q:My college actually teaches us data structures and algorithms using c++.Is this one helpful for C++ or would you recommend something else?
    A:This is a basic algorithms book and has no codes related to C++. However, it gives a mathematical understanding to algorithms and their pseudocodes which can be easily implemented in any language.
