Advanced Algorithms and Data Structures

Advanced Algorithms and Data Structures expands on the basic algorithms you already know to give you a better selection of solutions to different programming problems.

As a software engineer, you’ll encounter countless programming challenges that initially seem confusing, difficult, or even impossible. Don’t despair! Many of these “new” problems already have well-established solutions. Algorithms and Data Structures in Action teaches you powerful approaches to a wide range of tricky coding challenges that you can adapt and apply to your own applications.

Advanced Algorithms and Data Structures expands on the basic algorithms you already know to give you a better selection of solutions to different programming problems. In it, you’ll discover techniques for improving priority queues, efficient caching, clustering data, and more. Each example is fully illustrated with graphics, language-agnostic pseudo-code, and code samples in various languages. When you’re done, you will be able to implement advanced and little-known algorithms to deliver better performance from your code.
