An Introduction to the Analysis of Algorithms

Author: Robert Sedgewick,Philippe Flajolet

Publisher: Addison-Wesley

ISBN: 0133373487

Category: Computers

Page: 604

View: 7508

Despite growing interest, basic information on methods and models for mathematically analyzing algorithms has rarely been directly accessible to practitioners, researchers, or students. An Introduction to the Analysis of Algorithms, Second Edition, organizes and presents that knowledge, fully introducing primary techniques and results in the field. Robert Sedgewick and the late Philippe Flajolet have drawn from both classical mathematics and computer science, integrating discrete mathematics, elementary real analysis, combinatorics, algorithms, and data structures. They emphasize the mathematics needed to support scientific studies that can serve as the basis for predicting algorithm performance and for comparing different algorithms on the basis of performance. Techniques covered in the first half of the book include recurrences, generating functions, asymptotics, and analytic combinatorics. Structures studied in the second half of the book include permutations, trees, strings, tries, and mappings. Numerous examples are included throughout to illustrate applications to the analysis of algorithms that are playing a critical role in the evolution of our modern computational infrastructure. Improvements and additions in this new edition include Upgraded figures and code An all-new chapter introducing analytic combinatorics Simplified derivations via analytic combinatorics throughout The book’s thorough, self-contained coverage will help readers appreciate the field’s challenges, prepare them for advanced results—covered in their monograph Analytic Combinatorics and in Donald Knuth’s The Art of Computer Programming books—and provide the background they need to keep abreast of new research. "[Sedgewick and Flajolet] are not only worldwide leaders of the field, they also are masters of exposition. I am sure that every serious computer scientist will find this book rewarding in many ways." —From the Foreword by Donald E. Knuth

Books on computation in the marketplace tend to discuss the topics within specific fields. Many computational algorithms, however, share common roots. Great advantages emerge if numerical methodologies break the boundaries and find their uses across disciplines. Interdisciplinary Computing In Java Programming Language introduces readers of different backgrounds to the beauty of the selected algorithms. Serious quantitative researchers, writing customized codes for computation, enjoy cracking source codes as opposed to the black-box approach. Most C and Fortran programs, despite being slightly faster in program execution, lack built-in support for plotting and graphical user interface. This book selects Java as the platform where source codes are developed and applications are run, helping readers/users best appreciate the fun of computation. Interdisciplinary Computing In Java Programming Language is designed to meet the needs of a professional audience composed of practitioners and researchers in science and technology. This book is also suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate-level students in computer science, as a secondary text.
