The Best Books on Algorithmics
The Design and Analysis of Computer Algorithms
"This book still rules. I use it as a reference all the time. Still one of the few good advanced algorithms books out there."
Parallel Computation: Models and Methods
"Possibly the best book on parallel algorithms. Takes a paradigm-oriented approach. Can't believe it's out of print, shame on Prentice Hall!"
Complexity and Approximation: Combinatorial Optimization Problems and Their Approximability Properties
"The current bible on approximation algorithms and approximability properties of problems."
Analysis of Algorithms and Data Structures (International Computer Science Series)
"Quite advanced book on analysis techniques. Digs deeper (and is more mathematical) than most algorithm books. Sadly, it's out of print."
Fundamentals of Algorithmics
"One of the must-haves in the field. Takes a paradigm-oriented approach. Never mind the negative reviews, these guys are just lame whiners who did not get it ..."
Introduction to Algorithms (MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science)
"Held in high regard worldwide and deservedly so. Concentrates on the most often used parts of practical algorithmics and explains everything very carefully. Enlightening diagrams."
Algorithms on Strings, Trees and Sequences: Computer Science and Computational Biology
"Here it is, the bible on stringology! Not the first book on the topic but the most carefully written. Very readable, quite advanced in places. Great for computational biologists."
Analysis of Algorithms: Computational Methods & Mathematical Tools
"One of the most advanced books on algorithm analysis on the market. Get it if you profited from the Sedgewick/Flajolet book."
The Art of Computer Programming, Vols. 1-3
"For readers who are not deterred by a thoroughly mathematical approach. Contains a wealth of information. For many topics this is the only reliable reference."
Combinatorial Algorithms: Generation, Enumeration, and Search (Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications)
"Refreshingly different. Concentrates on topics not often seen (combinatorial generation, optimization methods, permutation groups, graph isomorphism)."
"Very informative book on randomized algorithmics. Treats a broad range of subjects, lots of interesting exercises."
Purely Functional Data Structures
"Missing a serious book on algorithms using functional programming? Buy this one! It's not encyclopaedic but makes an interesting read. And it's really cheap!"
The Analysis of Algorithms
"Virtually unknown but a real gem! Treats evaluation of sums and products, solution of (systems of) recurrences, asymptotics etc. Leaves a big hole in your wallet, though."
Compared to What?: An Introduction to the Anaylsis of Algorithms (Principles of Computer Science Series)
"Great book, very interesting introduction to algorithmics. Favouring didactics over completeness, this book especially appeals to students. Not pricewise, though."
An Introduction to the Analysis of Algorithms
"Its title sounds like that of dozens of other books but do not be mislead: This is an authoritative work on the mathematics underlying modern analysis techniques."
Data Structures and Their Algorithms
"Of the many books with like title let me single out this one as possibly the best generally readable introduction to the field. Many good exercises."
Algorithms: A Functional Programming Approach (International Computer Science Series)
"The only good introductory text on functional programming algorithmics. Kudos to the authors!"
How to Solve It: Modern Heuristics
"Seminal work on heuristic solution methods. Deserves to be read by any serious computer scientist working algorithmically."
Graphs, Networks & Algorithms
"My favourite book on graph algorithms, suitable also for beginners. All important subjects are there, complete proofs, pseudocode, you name it."
Computational Geometry: Algorithms and Applications, Second Edition
"Why data structures? Computational geometry is the answer! Beautifully explained in this book."
Computational Geometry: An Introduction Through Randomized Algorithms
"The best reference on randomized algorithms in computational geometry. Very detailed, very interesting range of topics."
Algorithmics for Hard Problems: Introduction to Combinatorial Optimization, Randomization, Approximation, and Heuristics
"Thorough and didactically appealing work on techniques for coping with (probably/hopefully) inherently difficult problems."
Flexible Pattern Matching in Strings: Practical On-Line Search Algorithms for Texts and Biological Sequences
"Superb book on those efficient string matching algorithms that are (to be) used in actual practice. Features concrete algorithms and examples. Many algorithms are not found in any other book!"
