This review is from: Algorithms (4th Edition) (Hardcover)
This is the book I wish I had, way back in the day, in my Algorithms class. The examples are very well presented. Concepts are explained, and the code examples are spot on. The book presents a library of routines that are built on in successive chapters. This makes skipping ahead to specific examples somewhat challenging. The code and libraries are available on-line.
Everything is in JAVA, which was perfect for my use.
I've suggested that members of my team take a look at this book - not as required reading, but as a tool to have in their toolbox.
A quest for some shortest path algorithms to use in optimizing warehouse operations brought me to this book. I knew the general algorithm I wanted to use, but needed some help. Two minutes looking at an on-line chapter was all it took to convince me to purchase the book. I'm glad I did.
