Vazirani is an excellent choice in this regard.
I’d tried studying from both CLRS and this text (S. Dasgupta, C. H. Papadimitrio | Hacker News
Algorithms was the assigned text in a class here at UC Berkeley, and I feel I would have been very confused if I did not have CLRS to cross-reference and explain things more clearly, and in more detail.
From my experience, I recommend using CLRS as an aid for rigorous study and Vazirani for less rigorous, but very effective learning. Since reading the book, I don’t do it any other way. It’s really invaluable for being able to come up with your own algorithms, when a non-standard problem hits you. Though I agree to most of what you said, for learning algorithms you need not think about low level memory management.
Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. This text, extensively class-tested over a decade at UC Berkeley and UC San Diego, explains the fundamentals of algorithms in a story line that makes the material enjoyable and easy to digest.
Which for most people is hard, in part because most algorithms books present the proofs as a fait accompli. I’m not denying that I enjoyed learning from CLRS – but I recollect having to take more effort to parse its detailed pseudo-code than what a higher level of abstraction would’ve taken. Like a captivating novel, it is a joy to read. Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. Read some of the Amazon reviews: What I like most about this book is that it contains tons of interesting, real-world examples and exercises that make the theory so much more fun.

Given that, I’m not sure what purpose this text serves. I came here to make exactly the same recommendation about Udi Manber’s book. I had used CLRS many times to explain algorithms to non-CS students and collaborators who almost always preferred dynamically typed scripting languages like python and to be honest were scared of ints and floats.
There’s a problem loading this menu right now. Emphasis is placed on understanding the crisp mathematical idea behind each algorithm, in a manner that is intuitive and .sdasgupta without being unduly formal. I remember reading Chain Matrix Multiplication page6. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web.
The explanations are clear, detailed and rigorous. These items are shipped from and sold by different sellers. This situation happens a few critical times in the text.

I’d argue that in such cases, it is alhorithms to limit the number of memory swaps and comparisons you make to keep the algorithm efficient. Vazirani some years back. The Algorithm Design Manual. Carefully chosen advanced topics that can be skipped in a standard one-semester course, but can be covered in an advanced algorithms course or in a more leisurely two-semester sequence.
c.h.papdimitriou Show details Buy the selected items together This item: But Manber s.dasgupa, and demonstrates convincingly in his book, that the design and the proof both become easier if you do them together. It is written in such a way that it is actually tolerable to sit down an read, as opposed to just use as a reference. I didn’t truly “get” algorithms until I stopped bashing my head against this wall and started reading CLRS.
Each of these complement the others in a nice way and being able to look at the same concept from the perspective of different authors always help. Algorithms should be correct, fast and consume the least memory possible – this requires you to think about low level memory management, cost of comparisons etc.
