Book News Annotation:

Although computers can work ever faster and more efficiently, the human mind still prevails. McConnell (Canisius College) continues in his efforts to involve students closely in improving algorithm design, raising awareness of the impact of algorithms on the efficiency of a program, and developing skills necessary to analyze algorithms used in programs by using a step-by-step, highly interactive approach. He covers the basics of analysis and then works through recursive, searching and selection, sorting, numeric, formal language, matching, graph, and parallel algorithms, leading to other algorithmic techniques and commentary on the limits of computation. He has updated this edition to follow the recommendations of the ACM/SIGCSE 2001 task force and to include such topics as automata theory and recursive algorithms as well as new examples and more real-world programming projects.

Synopsis:

Updated to follow the recommendations put forth by the ACM/SIGCSE 2001 task force, Analysis of Algorithms raises awareness of the effects that algorithms have on the efficiency of a program and develops the necessary skills to analyze general algorithms used in programs. The text presents the material with the expectation that it can be used with active and cooperative learning methodology, based on the premise that students learn more effectively and retain more information longer when they are active participants in the learning process. To accomplish this, the chapters are clear and complete to encourage students to prepare by reading before class, and the text is filled with exciting examples and exercises that look at the efficiency of various algorithms to solve a problem. The author is well known for workshops that he presents on the active learning model. He has written an instructor's manual that helps instructors understand how to present the material in an active way.
