According to the Authors, ” Before there were computers, there were algorithms. But now that there are computers,there are even more algorithms, and algorithms lie at the heart of computing. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the modern study of computer algorithms. It presents many algorithms and covers them in considerable depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers. We have tried to keep explanations elementary without sacrificing depth of coverage or mathematical rigor.

The text is intended primarily for use in undergraduate or graduate courses in algorithms or data structures. Because it discusses engineering issues in algorithm design, as well as mathematical aspects, it is equally well suited for self-study by technical professionals.

In this, the third edition, we have once again updated the entire book. The changes cover a broad spectrum, including new chapters, revised pseudo-code, and a more active writing style.  The magnitude of the changes is on a par with the changes between the first and second editions. As we said about the second-edition changes, depending on how you look at it, the book changed either not much or quite a bit. A quick look at the table of contents shows that most of the second-edition chapters and sections appear in the third edition. We removed two chapters and one section, but we have added three new chapters and two new sections apart from these new chapters.

Here is a summary of the most significant changes for the third edition:

  • We added new chapters on van Emde Boas trees and multi threaded algorithms, and we have broken out material on matrix basics into its own appendix chapter.
  • We revised the chapter on recurrences to more broadly cover the divide-and conquer technique, and its first two sections apply divide-and-conquer to solve two problems. The second section of this chapter presents Strassen’s algorithm for matrix multiplication, which we have moved from the chapter on matrix operations.
  • We removed two chapters that were rarely taught: binomial heaps and sorting networks. One key idea in the sorting networks chapter, the 0-1 principle, appears in this edition within Problem 8-7 as the 0-1 sorting lemma for compare exchange algorithms. The treatment of Fibonacci heaps no longer relies on binomial heaps as a precursor.
  • Based on many requests, we changed the syntax (as it were) of our pseudo-code. We now use “D” to indicate assignment and “==”to test fore quality ,just as C, C++, Java, and Python do. Likewise, we have eliminated the keywords do and the nand adopted “//”as our comment-to-end-of-line symbol. We also now use dot-notation to indicate object attributes. Our pseudo-code remains procedural, rather than object-oriented. In other words, rather than running methods on objects, we simply call procedures, passing objects as parameters.
