Algorithms in C++ 3RD Edition Parts 1-4by Robert Sedgewick
Synopses & Reviews
Robert Sedgewick has thoroughly rewritten and substantially expanded and updated his popular work to provide current and comprehensive coverage of important algorithms and data structures. Christopher Van Wyk and Sedgewick have developed new C++ implementations that both express the methods in a concise and direct manner, and also provide programmers with the practical means to test them on real applications.
Many new algorithms are presented, and the explanations of each algorithm are much more detailed than in previous editions. A new text design and detailed, innovative figures, with accompanying commentary, greatly enhance the presentation. The third edition retains the successful blend of theory and practice that has made Sedgewick's work an invaluable resource for more than 250,000 programmers!
This particular book, Parts 1n4, represents the essential first half of Sedgewick's complete work. It provides extensive coverage of fundamental data structures and algorithms for sorting, searching, and related applications. Although the substance of the book applies to programming in any language, the implementations by Van Wyk and Sedgewick also exploit the natural match between C++ classes and ADT implementations. Highlights
Whether you are learning the algorithms for the first time or wish to have up-to-date reference material that incorporates new programming styles with classic and new algorithms, you will find a wealth of useful information in this book.
This text on algorithms and data structures develops C++ implementations that express methods in a concise manner, and provides students with practical means to test C++ on real applications. It covers: fundamental data structures and algorithms for sorting, searching and related applications.
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.
This is the latest offering in the Algorithms series from esteemed author and former Donald Knuth student, Robert Sedgewick. Using C++, Parts 1-4 of Sedgewick's work provide extensive data structures and algorithms for sorting, searching, and related applications. They reflect the third edition's greater emphasis on abstract data types (ADTs). Coverage includes more than 100 key algorithms for sorting, selection, priority queue ADT implementations, and symbol table ADT (searching) implementations. Also included are new implementations of binomial queues, multiway radix sorting, Batcher's sorting networks, randomized BSTs, splay trees, skip lists, and multiway tries.
