Introduction to Algorithms: A Creative Approach

4.31  ·  Rating details ·  126 ratings  ·  6 reviews
This book emphasizes the creative aspects of algorithm design by examining steps used in the process of algorithms development. The heart of this creative process lies in an analogy between proving mathematical theorems by induction and designing combinatorial algorithms. The book contains hundreds of problems and examples. It is designed to enhance the reader's problem-so ...more

So, thanks Udi, I wish I met your book sooner!

Anyone who invests serious daily time into the book and takes it slow (giving most chapters a week o

Unlike other textbooks, this book is not just a catalog of algorithms. It teaches how to develop algorithms using the inductive or iterative method, similar to mathematical induction.
