The Algorithm Design Manual, 1st Edition

Steven Skiena

Please visit the book page for the more recent 2nd Edition printing of The Algorithm Design Manual.

I was gratified by the warm reception the first edition of The Algorithm Design Manual received since its publication. It ultimately went through ten printings and generated numerous errata, which remain available here.

The first edition came with a CD-ROM, with mirrors of the algorithm repository and my audio/video lecture notes. Updated and improved versions of these resources are available on line, rendering the CD-ROM unnecessary (although I fondly recall the fellow who asked me for an extra copy so their child could have one when they grew up).

This CD-ROM was also the source of the pirated online version from Indonesia. The Amazon Kindle edition is better.

You can purchase The Algorithm Design Manual on Amazon or directly from Springer.
