Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Software developers and computer scientists have eagerly awaited this comprehensive revision of Robert Sedgewick's landmark texts on algorithms for C. Sedgewick has completely revamped all five sections, illuminating today's best algorithms for an exceptionally wide range of tasks. This shrink-wrapped package brings together Algorithms in C, Third Edition, Parts 1-4 and his new Algorithms in C, Third Edition, Part 5, at a special discounted price. Together, these books are the most definitive, up-to-date, and practical algorithms resource available. The first book introduces fundamental concepts associated with algorithms, then covers data structures, sorting, and searching. The second book focuses entirely on graphing algorithms, which are critical for a wide range of applications, including network connectivity, circuit design, scheduling, transaction processing, and resource allocation. Sedgewick focuses on practical applications, giving readers all the information, diagrams, and real (not pseudo-) code they need to confidently implement, debug, and use the algorithms he presents. Together these books present nearly 2,000 new exercises, hundreds of new figures, and dozens of new programs.

Sedgewick is about very clean, easy to understand + memorize implementations of standard algorithms.
Angela Kuhnert
These books were a recommendation from my friend who is doing molecular simulation using cuda and needs very optimized codes!Do I have to say anything else?

Sedgewick's 'Algorithms in C' is undeniably the best book for beginners studying about algorithms and data structures.

I have quite a few books on algorithms and C programming, and this probably takes the cake. Sedgewick writes clearer than perhaps anyone on the subject. The book is filled to the gills with tiny 20 line (complete) programs that do amazing things - such as the program to compute all the prime numbers less than N (provided as input). These examples are typically given to illustrate some point (such as using dynamic array allocation for storing which numbers are prime) - but the short, concise algorithms given in the examples are learning aids as well (i.e. - I didn't know you could calculate a list of primes so easily, and I can probably take this knowledge and use it somewhere else). The reader is challenged to alter the examples (instead of using an array to store which numbers are prime, use a bitmap). Because the examples are small, compact, and easy to read, this provokes one to actually sit down and try and play with them. In contrast, I also have the Algorithms In C O'Reilley book by Kyle Loudon and after reading the Sedgewick title, I'm throwing that away. That book spends 1/3 of the chapter describing the algorithms, and then spends the rest of it in user-interface code examples. Of course, all the user interfaces for all the examples in the book are pretty much the same, so the whole book is filled with redundant useless code. More analysis, less filler, please. As Sedgewick was a student of Knuth, I consider his books as the practical guide to Knuth's tomes (which seem out of date - do we really need algorithm analysis on external storage these days??), which are filled with rigorous mathematical analysis. I highly recommend this book(s) -- actually there are two, with the second volume covering graphs.Read more ›

Sedgewick's 'Algorithms in C' is undeniably the best book for beginners studying about algorithms and data structures. The text is clear, lucid, and the programming examples are very well documented. The exercises and problems stimulate thoughts and help in developing a better understanding of the subject. All the key aspects of the subject are sufficiently addressed, and discussed in the best possible way. It's the code in the book that I love the most, it can be compiled on almost any compiler without almost any change being made to it. I would strongly recommend this book as a textbook to all beginners embarking on a study of data structures and algorithms.

The second text (Part 5 - graph algorithms) was a real suprise. I bought the set for the first book, because I couldn't find the first text by it self. To my suprise, Part 5 was excellent and help me solve an issue I've been dealing with for weeks. The books not only give good analysis of the algorithms, but also provide sample source code.

Sedgewick's books are now an essential part of my C programming reference library. I've referred to his books many times since I bought them. Unlike most technical references, these books are excellent, even if you aren't interested in C. Excellent texts.

I also have Cormen and Skiena, both are also excellent algorithm books, so it's good to have a sense of their various aims.

Cormen is an introduction to a lot of different types of algorithms.
Skiena presents a practical guide on applying algorithms.

Sedgewick is about very clean, easy to understand + memorize implementations of standard algorithms. I think the implementations in this book are some of the most beautiful and terse programs around. One thing that's initially a bit off putting is the sheer number of words that accompany each example, but I've found that the very in depth explanations are actually quite good ... after you've had some time to sit and play with the examples first. If you're willing to put in the effort, the text is actually really quite accessible. You do have to attack each example for a while before you start to feel like you're on the same wavelength as the author, but only because the material itself requires it, not because the text is difficult to understand.
