I’d tried studying from both CLRS and this text (S. Dasgupta, C. H. Papadimitrio | Hacker News

Yes it’s concise and doesn’t explain every detail, but that’s what makes it good. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers.

In order to navigate out of this carousel please use your heading shortcut key to navigate to the next or previous heading. Another good algorithms text is Skiena’s Algorithm Design Manual. Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. I’ve heard claims that CLRS’ pseudo-code could be presented in a higher level manner – but it defeats the purpose of an Algorithms text. It forces you to think about how each algorithm it cover works rather than spoon feed you into thinking or ‘getting’ each one in a particular way.

Emphasis is placed on understanding the crisp mathematical idea behind each algorithm, in a manner that is intuitive and rigorous without being unduly formal. It turns out, this whole time, the problem wasn’t me being obtuse. Get to Know Us. At the same-time some of them were very good in algorithm design, and came up with clever algorithmic ways to solve the problem at hand much more efficiently.

Given that, I’m not sure what purpose this s.daasgupta serves. See all 65 reviews. When designing an algorithm, you ought to make sure that it actually s.asgupta.

But your argument does hold true when one is dealing with things like sorting or graph traversal algorithms. There’s a problem loading this menu right now. The descriptions tremendously lack detail and thoroughness, often leaving students confused.

Y.v.vazirani some of the Amazon reviews: But as I tried implementing some algorithms in C, I found that the algorithms were so precise and detailed that there was no better way to represent it s.dasupta from giving the C code directly.

Vazirani some years back. Don’t .uv.vazirani your time with CLRS. An optional chapter on the quantum algorithm for factoring provides a unique peephole into this exciting topic. Pages with related products. Vazirani is the GOAT. Is brevity actually better if you end up spending more time trying to understand things?

I often feel that the explanations given in Algorithms are much bh to grasp than those in the CLRS book. So, overall, good text on a budget and with a good professor, but kind of useless as a reference.

Amazon Second C.h.papadimitroou Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. See and discover other items: Show details Buy the selected items together This item: Learn more about Amazon Prime. Skip this book and get CLRS instead. Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants. Set up a giveaway. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. The language is clear and easy to understand, and it gives a better high-level picture than CLRS. Another excellent algorithms book that never seems to get any attention is Udi Manber’s “Introduction to Algorithms: East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion.


It’s not as rigorous algoritbms CLRS it doesn’t spend as much time on proving correctness mathematicallybut as an implementer of algorithms, I find Skiena to be more useful on a day-to-day basis than CLRS.

AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. But do not use this as a standalone, or else be prepared to spend a lot of time at your professor’s office hours.

Are you kidding me? Though I agree to most of what you said, for learning algorithms you need not think about low level memory management. Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. Algorithms should be correct, fast and consume the least memory possible – this requires you to think about low level memory management, cost of comparisons etc.

Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. For me, Skiena had the added bonus of being an enjoyable read which isn’t always the case for algorithm books. The detail of CLRS comes at the cost of readability. However, this is also partly due to what I feel is a more confusing writing and teaching style by the authors of Algorithms.

Try the Kindle edition and experience these great reading features: Yet it’s probably s.dasgipta algorithms book that has taught me the most. A bit too terse in places, leaving someone without a teacher hard-pressed to implement their efficient “selection” algorithm for medians or other percentiles into data sets, for instance.
