This book emphasizes the creative aspects of algorithm design by examining steps used in the process of algorithm development. The heart of the creative process lies in an analogy between proving mathematical theorems by induction and designing combinatorial algorithms. The book contains hundreds of problems and examples. It is designed to enhance the reader's problem-solving abilities and understanding of the principles behind algorithm design.
fundamental book in theory of algorithms, focus on induction technique design, teach you how to design algorithms by induction, useful for every computer science studentPublished 10 months ago by Ethan

...I changed my mind after trying to use this book alone to implement FFT. Its description is quite clear and simple, much simpler than the Rivest et al book or wikipedia. Read morePublished on April 9, 2006 by robert b
The book is complete and correct, no argument there. However, I had a lot of trouble learning from it. Read morePublished on July 7, 2004
It's a very perfect book to become familiar with main
methods of producing effective algorithms.
Although this book covers a large area its coverage is somewhat incomplete. The first thing you notice is the bad formatting of this book making the examples and explanations hard... Read morePublished on May 17, 2001 by "shadarlogoth"
