Description / Abstract:


This book instructs readers on the science of developing and analyzing algorithms. It is intended for use in a one- or two-semester undergraduate course in data structures.

The text focuses on both the theoretical and practical aspects of algorithm development. It discusses problem-solving techniques and introduces the concepts of data abstraction and algorithm efficiency. More important, it does not present algorithms in a shoppinglist format. Rather, the book tries to provide actual insight into the design process itself.

The book also has a practical bent. Most of the algorithms are of general use, and there is a strong emphasis placed on "real world" programming requirements. As a result of this unique approach, and the fact that all algorithms are presented in the C programming language, the book should prove useful to professional programmers as well.
