7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Truls A. Bjrklund on October 9, 2005
Format: Hardcover
I have really enjoyed this book. It introduces all the mathematical stuff at the beginning, and draws the clear link between recurrences and differential equations. I find this way of doing things very handy and far surerior to the way famous books on algorithms like Cormen et al. does it. To a fresh student taking his or her first course in algorithms it may be a rough start, but it is definitely an interresting book.
