unlcked In Algorithms UnlockedThomas Cormen — coauthor of the leading college textbook apgorithms the subject — provides a general explanation, with limited mathematics, of how algorithms enable computers to solve problems. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Feb 17, Darrell Ulm ffee it it was amazing Shelves: It’s a great step-by-step explanation of the basic algorithms. Non-technical, perfect for programmers and non-programmers. 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.
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. Rather than mathematical proofs, the author employs simple analogies and reasoning to explain the works of the algorithms. I’m definitely going to return to this book to keep my knowledge of basic techniques sharp! A very easy read.

And I would definitely recommend this book to some people from the field. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. 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? Open Xormen See a Problem? Jun 29, Neeraj Adhikari rated it really liked it Shelves: I highly recommend this to anyone interested in knowing about algorithms.

It wouldn’t be impossible to understand. Thanks for telling us about the problem. A whole lotta good stuff. For me was nice to read in a few pages to remember things. It is wonderful in this context. Algorithms Unlocked by Thomas H.
Mike rated it really liked it Feb 18, How easy is it for people from outside the field? Its like mini version of CLRS. How your credit card account number is protected when you make a purchase over the Internet? This book is a gem.
I think the examples presented in those sections served to muddy the technique required, unlike the clarity pr 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 more comprehensive text, such as CLRS. Nov 03, Siddhant Shrivastava rated it it was amazing Shelves: If you would like a better grasp of how programmers approach problems, perhaps as a journalist, manager, or co-worker, then this will probably be worth reading.
Trivia About Algorithms Unlocked. 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!
The visceral treatment makes this book an introductory text.
