Emphasis is placed on understanding the crisp mathematical idea behind each algorithm, in a manner that is intuitive and rigorous without being unduly formal. The u This text, extensively class-tested over a decade at UC Berkeley and UC San Diego, explains the fundamentals of algorithms in a story line dasguptw makes the material enjoyable and easy to digest.

The use of boxes to strengthen the narrative: Carefully chosen advanced topics that can be skipped in a standard one-semester course, but can be zlgorithms in an advanced algorithms course or in a more leisurely two-semester sequence. An accessible treatment of linear programming introduces students to one of the greatest achievements in algorithms.

An optional chapter on the quantum algorithm for factoring provides a unique peephole into this exciting topic. Like a captivating novel, it is a joy to read.

Lists with This Book. Mar 24, Max Savchenko rated it it was amazing.

Dec 24, Cathy Wu rated it it was amazing Recommended to Cathy by: Best text I’ve seen for algorithms at an undergraduate level.


The focus of this book is on providing intuition and succeeds in communicating points without getting bogged down in technical details.

Some readers may find the language too informal, so for the active learner, this book can be supplemented with other texts as well. I especially enjoyed the quantum computing chapter at the end, which beautifully presents a very complex approach to factoring in polynomial time.

May 17, Abdussami Tayyab rated it it was amazing. During the entire time I read this book, I was amazed by the simplicity in the content. It’s so nicely written. I keep wondering why is it so under-rated, rather than Cormen’s which has wretched code snippets and it’s a bit difficult to understand. Although this book is not for beginners as compared to Cormen’s but you’ve got to read this book sometime. Jun 21, Gavin rated it did not like it.

Does not do a good job of clearly explaining the algorithms. Sometimes the authors don’t say what a variable means in an algorithm. There are some mistakes as well in the book. Sep 21, Shayne rated it liked it Shelves: Will come back to this one for reference and study. Mar 26, Joshua Anderson rated it it was amazing. A wonderful well-writen text for an intoduction to Algorithms. I learned more from this book’s 7ish page description of the simplex algorithm than I did from an entire semester of an optimization course.

Apr 23, Josh added it Shelves: If you want an in depth account of most of the material covered in here you are much better off reading CLRS. Still, there is a definite charm to the elegance of the ideas presented here.

Worthwhile reading for computer scientists, but not really beginner-friendly. Aug 07, Alexander Ptakhin rated it algortihms liked it Shelves: Very good introduction to algorithms.

With small size it shows algoritms, real examples for them and brief proofs omitting some corners. It can’t replace such foundamental books e. Knuth or Cormen, but it’s ok to show algorithms beauty without conclusive mathematical proof. May 07, Harlen rated it did not like it. Goes over basic algorithms and has tons of questions. However there aren’t any solutions even online.

The lack of answers makes this book a pretty much useless. Save yourself the papaadimitriou and don’t use this book. Mar 27, Jami Dwyer marked it as to-read Shelves: Apr 27, Pradeep Gouru added it. Feb 20, Adeesh rated it it was amazing. Very detailed coverage in lucid terms. A great read for people who have some basic understanding of algorithm and want to explore the subject in some more detail. The best part is that it’s free. Jan 21, Rich Bergmann rated it it was amazing. Best treatment of Fast Fourier Transform that I’ve ever encountered.


Sep 21, Jagdeep Pani rated it it was amazing. It is showing an abstract view of Algorithms. Beginners may find difficult to understand. But its a nice book with beautiful exercises. Erik rated it really liked it Jul 25, Augusto Baffa rated it really liked it Feb 02, Chris rated it it was ok Aug 05, Allie Lindgren rated it it was amazing Oct 08, Charu Sharma rated it really liked it Dec 26, Eric rated it really liked it Jun 30, Leonidas rated it really liked it Aug 28, Mohammad Khan rated it liked it Mar 18, Hyperion rated it really liked it Aug 09, Eric rated it it was amazing Sep 17, Kaja rated it it was amazing Feb 21, Tinya rated it liked it Dec 17, Cache Staheli rated it it was ok Aug 04, Hitesh Pandey rated it it was amazing Nov 24, Chenyang Yuan rated it it was amazing Dec 30, Sam Best rated it liked it Dec 27, There are no discussion topics on cheistos book yet.
