Algoritmos iluminados (Primera parte): Conceptos básicos
Algorithms are the heart and soul of computer science. Their applications range from network routing and computational genomic to public-key cryptography and database system implementations. Studying algorithms can make you a better programmer, a clearer thinker, and a master of technical interviews.
Algoritmos iluminados is an accesible introduction to the subject–a transcript of what an expert tutor would say over a series of one-on-one lessons.
Part 1 covers asymptotic analysis and big-O notation, divide-and-conquer algorithms and the master method, randomized algorithms, and several famous algorithms for sorting and selection.
Tim Roughgarden is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Columbia. He is an expert in the design, analysis, applications, and limits of algorithms. This four book series is based on his online algorithms courses that have been running regularly since 2012.
