Cormen received a Ph. If you’ve read THE book on Algorithms i.

Even though I’ve been engaged in competitive programming ever since I started college, it was useful for me in some topics in which my knowledge is admittedly shallow, as in cryptography and NP vs P problem. Although I was thinking that the book was to see problems or algorithms algorithks without to much maths.

I think the chapters on shortest path algorithms, sorting and string algorithms are quite adequate as a way of introduction. Refresh and try again.

This is not a textbook the other book ie. He didn’t assume much scientific or mathematical ulnocked knowledge for the readers. Non-technical, perfect for programmers and non-programmers.

In other words it’s not actually intended for people on the field. How your credit card account number is algoritmhs when you make a purchase over the Internet? No trivia or quizzes yet. This book serves as a soft introduction to algorithms and how they work to solve real world problems,without any of the mathematical rigor. I’m definitely going to return to this book to keep my knowledge of basic techniques sharp! More math than coding.


Aug 06, Mkfs rated it it was amazing. How easy is it for people from outside the field?

I’d recommend this book to anyone how wants to understand how computers solve problems. 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! A very good book for beginners, anyone who wants to know the basics should start with this book.

Any junior or self-taught programmer who finds unloocked algorithm texts too difficult should consider this book a must-read. The second half was particularly useful for me.

Professor Cormen intended to make this book an in-between book between the very theoretical books and the very techincal books. 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.
