This internationally acclaimed textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the modern study of computer algorithms. It covers a broad range of algorithms in depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of reade Each chapter is relatively self-contained and presents an algorithm, a design technique, an application area, or a related topic. The algorithms are described and designed in a manner to be readable by anyone who has done a little programming. The explanations have been kept elementary without sacrificing depth of coverage or mathematical rigor. The third edition has been revised and updated throughout. It includes two completely new chapters, on van Emde Boas trees and multithreaded algorithms, and substantial additions to the chapter on recurrences (now called Divide-and-Conquer ). It features improved treatment of dynamic programming and greedy algorithms and a new notion of edge-based flow in the material on flow networks. Many new exercises and ... See more

     The bible for algorithms, but quite advanced 31 July, 2013 On
    Cormen is the most popular algorithms book by far. It covers all topics from sorting, searching to graphs and dynamic programming. The breadth and depth of topics covered is immense.

    However, the book is not easy to read and requires affinity towards mathematical symbols and equations. The explanation is more mathematical than intuitive and can be daunting for complex subjects such as dynamic programming.

    Overall, I would recommend this as a reference book for computer science students but a more descriptive book such as Skiena would serve better as a text book for developing fundamentals.
