Algorithms in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition
A Practical Guide
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: March 2016
Pages: 390

Creating robust software requires the use of efficient algorithms, but programmers seldom think about them until a problem occurs. This updated edition of Algorithms in a Nutshell describes a large number of existing algorithms for solving a variety of problems, and helps you select and implement the right algorithm for your needs—with just enough math to let you understand and analyze algorithm performance.

With its focus on application, rather than theory, this book provides efficient code solutions in several programming languages that you can easily adapt to a specific project. Each major algorithm is presented in the style of a design pattern that includes information to help you understand why and when the algorithm is appropriate.

With this book, you will:

  • Solve a particular coding problem or improve on the performance of an existing solution
  • Quickly locate algorithms that relate to the problems you want to solve, and determine why a particular algorithm is the right one to use
  • Get algorithmic solutions in C, C++, Java, and Ruby with implementation tips
  • Learn the expected performance of an algorithm, and the conditions it needs to perform at its best
  • Discover the impact that similar design decisions have on different algorithms
  • Learn advanced data structures to improve the efficiency of algorithms

Not a grabber

Comments about oreilly Algorithms in a Nutshell:

I had hoped that at least the initial example of a
problem that would be fitting to the books title,
would be something of an attention getter. Turns
out the opportunity to grab the reader's attention
is not exploited. This book quickly joined all my
other OReilly books, the reference shelf, where I
hope some day to find something I can use.
