Algorithims in C

3.8  ·  Rating details ·  51 Ratings  ·  3 Reviews
This new version of the best-selling book, Algorithms, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive collection of algorithms implemented in C. A variety of algorithms are described in each of the following areas: sorting, searching, string-processing, geometric, graph, and mathematical algorithms. These algorithms are expressed in terms of concise implementations in C, so that ...more

Unfortunately, this is not one of the better books on algorithms. Sedgewick's explanations are confusing and he often tries to use an informal language to explain things that require a precise mathematical description (this is particularly bad in the chapter in cryptography). Quicksort is basically the only algorithm he explains adequately, which is not a surprise given that Sedgewick wrote his dissertation on it.
I recommend reading Cormen, Leiserson and Rivest's book instead.

Eh, this is alright, but both the algorithms and the C leave something to be desired. From what I've seen of later editions, this (the second) is pretty much the worst -- Sedgewick gave things a mighty overhaul for the third edition, producing a multivolume work that's likely not meaningfully comparable to this one. GT's Jim Greenlee, scourge of undergraduate CS and CmpE majors, gave me his copy while I was TA'ing for him, and thus there's some sentimental attachment to this -- furthermore, I re ...more

This book has been superseded by second and third editions, much expanded, and is also available with code samples in other languages, especially Java. But this happens to be the text that I still have on my shelf, purchased when I took Sedgewick's intro to computer science class at Princeton in 1992. This book is a great overview of basic algorithms from a wide range of applications: sorting, searching, graph traversal, geometric analysis, and some basic math. I re-read it to prepare myself for ...more
