About this book

This is an introductory-level algorithm text which includes worked examples and detailed proofs, presenting algorithms by type rather than proof. The book begins with a compact, but complete introduction to some necessary maths, and also includes a long introduction to proofs by contradiction and mathematical induction to fill the gaps that many undergraduates have in their knowledge. It then goes on to provide a thorough introduction to the analysis of algorithms, and uses coherent notation and solving recurrences. It also includes a chapter on probabilistic algorithms, and an introduction to parallel algorithms. This work is intended for use on undergraduate courses in Algorithms or Design and Analysis of Algorithms.
