He received a Ph.D. in operations research and industrial engineering from Cornell University. His research interests include the design, analysis, and implementation of algorithms, especially for graphs and discrete optimization. With Robert Sedgewick, he is the coauthor of the highly acclaimed textbook, Introduction to Programming in Java: An Interdisciplinary Approach (Addison-Wesley, 2008).
Must read book for algorithm lovers.
This book along with course on coursera is very helpful for algorithm learners.
This is an excellent text. I found the second half of the book very useful for my work (graphs and strings). Read morePublished 5 days ago by r ram

Love, love, love this book and the ideas behind it. I started by reading another book (CLRS). I spent so many hours reading the CLRS book and came away not actually being able to... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Debra Klopfenstein
Book contains very details analysis and code for various algorithms. However there are not so much applications for algorithms themselves, so book is great as a study material for... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Maxim
Ordered this for the online coursera class that he teaches, this book is incredibly wordy, maybe that's my generational attention span, but it doesn't go along with the course as... Read morePublished 2 months ago by murray state campus ripstick guy
I bought this book as a supplement to Cormen's Algorithms book--sometimes I find it handy to have two different explanations of the same concepts. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Mitch Haile
