NEW Algorithms Unlocked (MIT Press) by Thomas H. Cormen | eBay
Extremely well written, not dry, cormem precise. It covers many important algorithms and intuitions behind their design and timings. At a little over pages, 10 chapters, the book can realistically be read in about 10 days in its entirety.
I am reading the book as part of preparation for tree technical interview. It is wonderful in this context. Many of us are vaguely? Unoocked think the author has perfectly hit a sweet spot of importance, algoritthms and precision in a package that is very readable. I truly recommend this book to people who need to prepare for a software engineer interview.
Jun 29, Neeraj Adhikari rated it really liked it Shelves: This book is great as a first introduction to the formal study of algorithms. It assumes no prior knowledge of algorithms analysis and a algorifhms basic knowledge of mathematics. The author succeeds in explaining some complicated concepts simply for the more or less lay reader. As for me, I studied this to whet my appetite before plunging headfirst into the massive tome that is CLRS.
Nov 03, Siddhant Shrivastava rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is the kind algorthms book one algorithmss to keep coming back to. It unnlocked a crisp account of the different algorithms that run the world. A very easy read. The visceral treatment makes this book an introductory text. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in knowing about algorithms. Aug 06, Mkfs rated it it was amazing. I had been asked, at one point, to recommend an algorithm book to a layman.
I blasted through it on the beach unpocked vacation and found it perfect. This is a book for people interested in how computers or computer programmers solve problems. It quite naturally requires a mathematical inclination, but unlike m I had been asked, at one point, to recommend an algorithm book to a layman. It quite naturally requires a mathematical inclination, but unlike most algorithm books, it relies on description and reasoning rather than equations unlcked illustrate the concepts.
It is difficult to determine the target audience for this book. If you’ve read THE book on Algorithms i. If you would like a better grasp of how programmers approach problems, perhaps as a journalist, manager, or co-worker, then this will probably be worth reading.
Any junior or self-taught programmer who finds standard algorithm texts too difficult should consider this book a must-read.
And finally, for the slgorithms who is curious, or who wants to learn a new style of problem-solving perhaps having exhausted books cormeb the likes of Zeitz or Michalewiczthis book will prove to be both readable and thought-provoking.
May 31, Algorihms rated it really liked it Shelves: This book serves as a soft introduction to algorithms and how they work to solve real world problems,without any of the mathematical rigor.
In that sense this book is quite useful to someone who is new to programming or simply wants to understand how computer programs or algorithms work. This is not a textbook the other book ie. Rather than mathematical proofs, the author employs simple analogies and reasoning to explain the works of the algorithms. I think the chapters on shortest path algorithms, sorting and string algorithms are quite adequate as a way of introduction.
As the author exclaims in the preface, if you get this algorithm joke you algorithns pretty much half way there to understanding algorithm outlines: Did you hear about the computer scientist who got stuck in the shower?
He was washing his hair and following the instructions on the shampoo bottle. Jul 14, Sudha Hariharan rated it liked it. Definitely not as good and thorough as “Introduction to Algorithms”, but good enough for anyone looking a simpler introduction.
May 15, Ayush Bhat rated it it was amazing. Its like mini version of CLRS. Good to have after you have studied something more thorough. Mar 16, David Guan rated it it was amazing. A nice organized book and friendly to people who have little computer science background. Feb 17, Darrell Ulm rated it it was amazing Shelves: Not for the newbies. Sep 29, Arquero rated it really liked it. A whole lotta good stuff. The second half was particularly useful for me. Feb 24, Frank Palardy rated it really liked it Shelves: His other book has so much math you forget the algorithms.
His one tries to avoid that but its still very detailed. Algoithms math than coding. Apr 12, Mohannad Hassan rated it really liked it Shelves: Professor Cormen intended to make this book an in-between book between the very theoretical books and the very techincal books.
He didn’t assume much scientific or mathematical background knowledge for the readers. In other words it’s not actually intended for people on the field. How easy is it for people from outside vree field? It wouldn’t be impossible to understand. I’d recommend this book to anyone how wants to understand how computers solve problems. And I would definitely recommend this book to some people from the field. Even though I’ve been engaged in competitive programming ever since I started college, it was useful for me in some cormmen in algorithmd my knowledge is admittedly shallow, as in cryptography and NP vs P problem.
This book gives a great overview of a broad variety of topics in algorithms, and supplies a decent amount of technical detail in the form of pseudocode and some fairly meaty proof outlines enough to prepare for a more comprehensive text, such as CLRS.
I think the examples presented in those sections served to muddy the technique required, unlike the clarity pr This book gives a great overview of a broad variety of topics in algorithms, and supplies a decent amount of technical detail in the form of pseudocode and some fairly meaty proof outlines enough to prepare for a more comprehensive text, such as CLRS.
I think the examples presented in those sections served to muddy the technique required, unlike the clarity provided by other examples in the book running through the examples for algorithms on strings in chapter 7 was challenging yet rewarding!
I’m definitely going to return to this book to keep my knowledge of basic techniques sharp! The book is good to see some algorithms without mathematical demonstration. If you want to remember how they works or if you never see algorithms before.
For me was nice to read in a few pages to remember things. Although I was thinking that the book was to see problems or algorithms applied without to much maths.
There is a part at the end speaking about the what are the problems open. In general it is ujlocked to read but not what I was looking for. Feb 02, Adel rated it it was amazing. A very good book for beginners, anyone who wants to know the basics should start with this book.
Jun 04, Aura Mora rated it really liked it. It’s a great step-by-step explanation of the basic algorithms.
Non-technical, perfect for programmers and non-programmers. Dec 25, Steve Gross rated it really liked it.
Serious, but humorous introduction to computer algorithms. Not for first timers. Jun 13, Enoch Adablah added it.
