Analytic combinatorics aims to enable precise quantitative predictions of the properties of large combinatorial structures. The theory has emerged over recent decades as essential both for the analysis of algorithms and for the study of scientific models in many disciplines, including probability theory, statistical physics, computational biology, and information theory. With a careful combination of symbolic enumeration methods and complex analysis, drawing heavily on generating functions, results of sweeping generality emerge that can be applied in particular to fundamental structures such as permutations, sequences, strings, walks, paths, trees, graphs and maps. This account is the definitive treatment of the topic. The authors give full coverage of the underlying mathematics and a thorough treatment of both classical and modern applications of the theory. The text is complemented with exercises, examples, appendices and notes to aid understanding. The book can be used for an advanced undergraduate or a graduate course, or for self-study.
Algorithms in Java, Third Edition, Part 5: Graph Algorithms, contains six chapters that cover graph properties and types, graph search, directed graphs, minimal spanning trees, shortest paths, and networks. The descriptions here are intended to give students an understanding of the basic properties of as broad a range of fundamental graph algorithms as possible. In the third edition, many new algorithms are presented, and the explanations of each algorithm are much more detailed than in previous editions. Unlike any other book on algorithms, not only will students get practical information on using algorithms in their work, they can also be assured that these algorithms rest on the most solid scientific foundations. And a new emphasis on abstract data types throughout the books makes the programs more broadly useful and relevant in modern object-oriented programming environments.
This book is useful as a text early in the computer science curriculum, after students have acquired basic programming skills and familiarity with computer systems, but before they have taken specialized courses in advanced areas of computer science or computer applications. There is sufficient coverage of basic material for the book to be used to teach data structures to beginners, and there is sufficient detail and coverage of advanced material for the book to be used to teach the design and analysis of algorithms to upper-level students. Some instructors may wish to emphasize implementations and practical concerns; others may wish to emphasize analysis and theoretical concepts. For a more comprehensive course, this book is also available in a special bundle with Parts 1-4 (ISBN for bundle of Parts 1-4 and Part 5 is 0201775786); thereby instructors can cover fundamentals, data structures, sorting, searching, and graph algorithms in one consistent style.
Graph algorithms are increasingly critical for a wide range of applications, such as network connectivity, circuit design, scheduling, transaction processing, and resource allocation. In the third edition, many new algorithms are presented, and the explanations of each algorithm are much more detailed than in previous editions. A new text design and detailed, innovative figures, with accompanying commentary, greatly enhance the presentation. Source code for the implementations is available via the Internet.
Parts 1-4 of Robert Sedgewick's work provide extensive coverage of fundamental data structures and algorithms for sorting, searching, and related applications. They reflect the third edition's greater emphasis on abstract data types (ADTs). Coverage includes more than 100 key algorithms for sorting, selection, priority queue ADT implementations, and symbol table ADT (searching) implementations. Also included are new implementations of binomial queues, multiway radix sorting, Batcher's sorting networks, randomized BSTs, splay trees, skip lists, and multiway tries. Increased quantitative information gives students a more solid basis for comparing algorithms, and hundreds of new exercises reinforce their learning. Algorithms and data structures described in the book are expressed in concise implementations in C, so that students can both appreciate their fundamental properties and test them on real applications.
For the first time Sedgewick's seminal work on algorithms and data structures is available with implementations in Java. Michael Schidlowsky and Sedgewick have developed new Java code that both expresses the methods in a concise and direct manner, and also provides programmers with the practical means to test them on real applications. This particular book, Parts 1-4, represents the essential first half of Sedgewick's complete work. Its four parts are fundamentals, data structures, sorting, and searching. It has expanded coverage of arrays, linked lists, strings, trees, ADT's, and object-oriented programming.

The aim of the annual ALENEX workshop is to provide a forum for the presentation of original research in the implementation and experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures. This research presents significant studies in experimental analysis or in the implementation, testing, and evaluation of algorithms for realistic environments and scenarios. The paper presentations address specific applied areas that present unique challenges in their underlying algorithmic problems as well as methodological issues and standards in the context of empirical research on algorithms and data structures. The ANALCO workshop presents a collection of original research in the analysis of algorithms and associated combinatorial structures. The papers study properties of fundamental combinatorial structures that arise in practical computational applications (such as permutations, trees, strings, tries, and graphs) and address the precise analysis of algorithms for processing such structures, including average-case analysis; analysis of moments, extrema, and distributions; and probabilistic analysis of randomized algorithms. This proceedings collects extended versions of the 14 papers that were selected for presentation from the ALENEX workshop and 10 papers selected for presentation from the ANALCO workshop.

Named a Notable Book in the 21st Annual Best of Computing list by the ACM! Robert Sedgewick and Kevin Wayne's Computer Science: An Interdisciplinary Approach is the ideal modern introduction to computer science with Java programming for both students and professionals. Taking a broad, applications-based approach, Sedgewick and Wayne teach through important examples from science, mathematics, engineering, finance, and commercial computing. The book demystifies computation, explains its intellectual underpinnings, and covers the essential elements of programming and computational problem solving in today's environments. The authors begin by introducing basic programming elements such as variables, conditionals, loops, arrays, and I/O. Next, they turn to functions, introducing key modular programming concepts, including components and reuse. They present a modern introduction to object-oriented programming, covering current programming paradigms and approaches to data abstraction. Building on this foundation, Sedgewick and Wayne widen their focus to the broader discipline of computer science. They introduce classical sorting and searching algorithms, fundamental data structures and their application, and scientific techniques for assessing an implementation's performance. Using abstract models, readers learn to answer basic questions about computation, gaining insight for practical application. Finally, the authors show how machine architecture links the theory of computing to real computers, and to the field's history and evolution. For each concept, the authors present all the information readers need to build confidence, together with examples that solve intriguing problems. Each chapter contains question-and-answer sections, self-study drills, and challenging problems that demand creative solutions. Companion web site (introcs.cs.princeton.edu/java) contains Extensive supplementary information, including suggested approaches to programming assignments, checklists, and FAQs Graphics and sound libraries Links to program code and test data Solutions to selected exercises Chapter summaries Detailed instructions for installing a Java programming environment Detailed problem sets and projects Companion 20-part series of video lectures is available at informit.com/title/9780134493831
