Problem solving is an essential part of every scientific discipline. It has two components: (1) problem identification and formulation, and (2) the solution to the formulated problem. One can solve a problem on its own using ad hoc techniques or by following techniques that have produced efficient solutions to similar problems. This requires the understanding of various algorithm design techniques, how and when to use them to formulate solutions, and the context appropriate for each of them. Algorithms: Design Techniques and Analysis advocates the study of algorithm design by presenting the most useful techniques and illustrating them with numerous examples — emphasizing on design techniques in problem solving rather than algorithms topics like searching and sorting. Algorithmic analysis in connection with example algorithms are explored in detail. Each technique or strategy is covered in its own chapter through numerous examples of problems and their algorithms. Readers will be equipped with problem solving tools needed in advanced courses or research in science and engineering.

Problem solving is an essential part of every scientific discipline. It has two components: (1) problem identification and formulation, and (2) the solution to the formulated problem. One can solve a problem on its own using ad hoc techniques or by following techniques that have produced efficient solutions to similar problems. This required the understanding of various algorithm design techniques, how and when to use them to formulate solutions, and the context appropriate for each of them.This book presents a design thinking approach to problem solving in computing — by first using algorithmic analysis to study the specifications of the problem, before mapping the problem on to data structures, then on to the situatable algorithms. Each technique or strategy is covered in its own chapter supported by numerous examples of problems and their algorithms. The new edition includes a comprehensive chapter on parallel algorithms, and many enhancements.

The design of correct and efficient algorithms for problem solving lies at the heart of computer science. This concise text, without being highly specialized, teaches the skills needed to master the essentials of this subject. With clear explanations and engaging writing style, the book places increased emphasis on algorithm design techniques rather than programming in order to develop in the reader the problem-solving skills. The treatment throughout the book is primarily tailored to the curriculum needs of B.Tech. students in computer science and engineering, B.Sc. (Hons.) and M.Sc. students in computer science, and MCA students. The book focuses on the standard algorithm design methods and the concepts are illustrated through representative examples to offer a reader-friendly text. Elementary analysis of time complexities is provided for each example-algorithm. A varied collection of exercises at the end of each chapter serves to reinforce the principles/methods involved. New To This Edition • Additional problems • A new Chapter 14 on Bioinformatics Algorithms • The following new sections: » BSP model (Chapter 0) » Some examples of average complexity calculation (Chapter 1) » Amortization (Chapter 1) » Some more data structures (Chapter 1) » Polynomial multiplication (Chapter 2) » Better-fit heuristic (Chapter 7) » Graph matching (Chapter 9) » Function optimization, neighbourhood annealing and implicit elitism (Chapter 12) • Additional matter in Chapter 15 • Appendix

This book is designed for the way we learn and intended for one-semester course in Design and Analysis of Algorithms . This is a very useful guide for graduate and undergraduate students and teachers of computer science. This book provides a coherent and pedagogically sound framework for learning and teaching. Its breadth of coverage insures that algorithms are carefully and comprehensively discussed with figures and tracing of algorithms. Carefully developing topics with sufficient detail, this text enables students to learn about concepts on their own, offering instructors flexibility and allowing them to use the text as lecture reinforcement.Key Features:" Focuses on simple explanations of techniques that can be applied to real-world problems." Presents algorithms with self-explanatory pseudocode." Covers a broad range of algorithms in depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers." Includes chapter summary, self-test quiz and exercises at the end of each chapter. Key to quizzes and solutions to exercises are given in appendices.

Analysis and Design of Algorithms provides a structured view of algorithm design techniques in a concise, easy-to-read manner. The book was written with an express purpose of being easy -- to understand, read, and carry. It presents a pioneering approach in the teaching of algorithms, based on learning algorithm design techniques, and not merely solving a collection of problems. This allows students to master one design technique at a time and apply it to a rich variety of problems. Analysis and Design of Algorithms covers the algorithmic design techniques of divide and conquer, greedy, dynamic programming, branch and bound, and graph traversal. For each of these techniques, there are templates and guidelines on when to use and not to use each technique. Many sections contain innovative mnemonics to aid the readers in remembering the templates and key takeaways. Additionally, the book covers NP-completeness and the inherent hardness of problems. The third edition includes a new section on polynomial multiplication, as well as additional exercise problems, and an updated appendix. Written with input from students and professionals, Analysis and Design of Algorithms is well suited for introductory algorithm courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The structured organization of the text makes it especially appropriate for online and distance learning.

This volume helps take some of the "mystery" out of identifying and dealing with key algorithms. Drawing heavily on the author's own real-world experiences, the book stresses design and analysis. Coverage is divided into two parts, the first being a general guide to techniques for the design and analysis of computer algorithms. The second is a reference section, which includes a catalog of the 75 most important algorithmic problems. By browsing this catalog, readers can quickly identify what the problem they have encountered is called, what is known about it, and how they should proceed if they need to solve it. This book is ideal for the working professional who uses algorithms on a daily basis and has need for a handy reference. This work can also readily be used in an upper-division course or as a student reference guide.THE ALGORITHM DESIGN MANUAL comes with a CD-ROM that contains:* a complete hypertext version of the full printed book.* the source code and URLs for all cited implementations.* over 30 hours of audio lectures on the design and analysis of algorithms are provided, all keyed to on-line lecture notes.
