Creating software systems involves more than simply writing a program. It requires creativity and technical excellence. Technical excellence includes the ability to make programs robust and efficient. Efficient algorithms are at the heart of all but the most trivial programs. Programmers, however, seldom think about the algorithms in their programs until they encounter problems. Many programmers do not have a background in algorithm analysis and design and if they do, they don't take the time to find the right algorithm for their needs. Algorithms in a Nutshell helps programmers select, analyze, and implement the right algorithms for their particular needs. It provides just enough…
