Editorial Reviews

Review

"

"In light of the explosive growth in the amount of data and the diversity of computing applications, efficient algorithms are needed now more than ever. This beautifully written, thoughtfully organized book is the definitive introductory book on the design and analysis of algorithms. The first half offers an effective method to teach and study algorithms; the second half then engages more advanced readers and curious students with compelling material on both the possibilities and the challenges in this fascinating field."--Shang-Hua Teng, University of Southern California

""Introduction to Algorithms, " the 'bible' of the field, is a comprehensive textbook covering the full spectrum of modern algorithms: from the fastest algorithms and data structures to polynomial-time algorithms for seemingly intractable problems, from classical algorithms in graph theory to special algorithms for string matching, computational geometry, and number theory. The revised third edition notably adds a chapter on van Emde Boas trees, one of the most useful data structures, and on multithreaded algorithms, a topic of increasing importance."--Daniel Spielman, Department of Computer Science, Yale University

"As an educator and researcher in the field of algorithms for over two decades, I can unequivocally say that the Cormen book is the best textbook that I have ever seen on this subject. It offers an incisive, encyclopedic, and modern treatment of algorithms, and our department will continue to use it for teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as a reliable research reference."--Gabriel Robins, Department of Computer Science, University of Virginia

4.0 out of 5 stars Top-Notch Content, Poor Binding
By T on June 3, 2016
This is probably the most well known and most used textbook on the subject, and with good reason. An excellent resource, covering just about everything you need to know for a good understanding of Algorithms. (side tip, my friends in the industry call this the "How To Pass a Google Interview" book).

My only complaint is that the binding has completely stated disintegrating after only 9 weeks of use. All of chapters 15 and 16 are completely falling out of my copy (and this is getting worse). Very disappointing as I plan on using it for a long time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Book is missing of pages
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 24, 2019
I have bought this book over 2 years ago but only now I have realised that over 100 pages are missing (I usually use an electronic version of it). You clearly can see from the images that it is not possible seeing the missing pages from the side of the tome that means the book is was originally faulty.
