Product description

Review

As an educator and researcher in the field of algorithms for over two decades, I can unequivocally say that the Cormen et al book is the best textbook that I have ever seen on this subject. It offers an incisive, encyclopedic, and modern treatment of algorithms, and our department will continue to use it for teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as a reliable research reference.

(Gabriel Robins, Department of Computer Science, University of Virginia)^

Introduction to Algorithms, the 'bible' of the field, is a comprehensive textbook covering the full spectrum of modern algorithms: from the fastest algorithms and data structures to polynomial-time algorithms for seemingly intractable problems, from classical algorithms in graph theory to special algorithms for string matching, computational geometry, and number theory. The revised third edition notably adds a chapter on van Emde Boas trees, one of the most useful data structures, and on multithreaded algorithms, a topic of increasing importance.

(Daniel Spielman, Department of Computer Science, Yale University)

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast but careless delivery
Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on July 26, 2018
Shipping was fast. But the corner of the book is damaged. The hard cover is bent over about an inch, and roughly 50 pages (100 indexed pages) are affected.
I read this book long time ago, and plan to keep a hard copy as part of collection. Although it won't change its classic content, the dent does make me feel a bit disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Book is missing of pages
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on March 24, 2019
I have bought this book years ago but only now I have realised that over 100 pages are missing (I usually use an electronic version of it). You clearly can see from the images that it is not possible seeing the missing pages from the side of the tome that means the book is was originally faulty. Over £32! That is what you call a proper SCAM!
