Description

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, substantial additions to
the chapter on recurrence (now called "Divide-and-Conquer"), and an appendix on matrices. 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.

The hardcover edition does not include a dust jacket.
