Its like mini version of Algorithmms. In general it is interesting to read but not what I was looking for. Nov 03, Siddhant Shrivastava rated it it was amazing Shelves: Return to Book Page. More math than coding. I’d recommend this book to anyone how wants to understand how computers solve problems.
A nice organized book and friendly to people who have little computer science background. Did you hear about the computer scientist who got stuck in the shower?
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. Jul 14, Sudha Hariharan rated it liked it. Jun 13, Enoch Adablah added it. It is wonderful in this context. The author succeeds in unlockrd some complicated concepts simply for the more or less lay reader.

Algorithms Unlocked by Thomas H. Cormen
As for me, I studied this to whet my appetite before plunging headfirst into the massive tome that is CLRS. The book is good to see some algorithms without mathematical demonstration. It’s a great step-by-step explanation of the basic algorithms.
They will discover simple ways to search for information in a computer; methods for rearranging information in a computer into a prescribed order “sorting” ; how to solve basic problems that rfee be modeled in a computer with a mathematical algorithm called a “graph” useful for modeling road networks, dependencies among tasks, and financial relationships ; how to solve problems that ask questions about strings of characters such as DNA structures; the basic principles behind cryptography; fundamentals of data compression; and even that there are some problems that no one has figured out how fres solve on a computer in a reasonable amount of time.
It is difficult to determine the target audience for this book. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Mar 16, David Guan rated it it was amazing.

It wouldn’t be impossible to understand. Books by Thomas H. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Many of us are vaguely? In Algorithms UnlockedThomas Cormen — coauthor of the leading college textbook on the subject — provides a general explanation, with limited mathematics, of how algorithms enable computers to solve problems.
This is a book for people algorrithms in how computers or computer programmers solve problems. Oct 16, Jacek Ambroziak rated it it was amazing.

A whole lotta good stuff.
Description 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? The visceral treatment makes this book an introductory text.
Have unlicked ever wondered how your GPS can find the fastest way to your destination, selecting one route from seemingly countless possibilities in mere seconds? Sep 29, Arquero rated it really liked it. Professor Cormen intended to make this book an in-between book between cotmen very theoretical books and the very techincal books. For me was nice to read in a few pages to remember things. This is not a textbook the other book ie.
