Based on a new classification of algorithm design techniques and a clear delineation of analysis methods, Introduction to the Design and Analysis of Algorithms presents the subject in a coherent and innovative manner. Written in a student-friendly style, the book emphasizes the understanding of ideas over excessively formal treatment while thoroughly covering the material required in an introductory algorithms course. Popular puzzles are used to motivate students' interest and strengthen their skills in algorithmic problem solving. Other learning-enhancement features include chapter summaries, hints to the exercises, and a detailed solution manual.Employs an innovative and more comprehensive taxonomy of algorithm design techniques Covers mathematical analysis of both nonrecursive and recursive algorithms, as well as empirical analysis and algorithm visualization Discusses limitations of algorithms and ways to overcome them Treats algorithms as problem-solving tools and develops algorithmic thinking by using puzzles and games Contains over 600 exercises with hints for students and detailed solutions for instructors New exercises and engaging puzzles
