Professor Cormen intended to make this book an in-between book between the very theoretical books and the very techincal books. Books by Thomas H. A nice organized book and friendly to people who have little computer science background.

The second half was particularly useful for me. Jun 13, Enoch Adablah added it. More math than coding. Mar 16, David Guan rated it it was amazing. Mike rated it really liked it Feb 18, At a little over pages, 10 chapters, the book can realistically be read in about 10 days in its entirety.

He didn’t assume much scientific or mathematical background knowledge for the readers. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.


Good to have after you have studied something more thorough. His one tries to avoid that but its still very detailed. It covers many important algorithms and intuitions behind their design and timings. Extremely well written, not dry, yet precise. If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you.

There is a part at the end speaking about the what are the problems open. Open Preview See a Problem? Not for the newbies. Want to Read saving….

It quite naturally requires a mathematical inclination, but unlike most algorithm books, it relies on description and reasoning rather than equations to illustrate the concepts. It quite naturally requires a mathematical inclination, but unlike m I had been asked, at one point, to recommend an algorithm book to a layman.

As the author exclaims in the preface, if you get this algorithm joke you cprmen pretty much half way there to understanding algorithm outlines: Readers will learn what computer algorithms are, how to describe them, and how to evaluate them.

Cormen Limited preview – A whole lotta good stuff. Have you ever wondered how your GPS can find the fastest way to your destination, selecting one route from seemingly countless possibilities in mere seconds? I think the examples presented in those sections served to muddy the technique required, unlike the clarity provided by other examples in the book running through the examples for algorithms on strings in chapter 7 was challenging yet rewarding!

It is difficult to determine unlocmed target audience for this book. Even though I’ve been engaged in competitive programming ever since I started college, it was useful for me in some topics in which my knowledge is admittedly shallow, as in cryptography and NP vs P problem.

How your credit card account number is protected when you make a purchase over the Internet? This book gives a great overview of a broad variety of topics in algorithms, and supplies a decent amount of technical detail in the form of pseudocode and some fairly meaty proof outlines enough to prepare for a cormej comprehensive text, such as CLRS.

Not for first timers.
