Advanced Algorithms and Data Structures - Marcello La Rocca

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.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
Advanced Algorithms and Data Structures introduces a collection of algorithms for complex programming challenges in data analysis, machine learning, and graph computing.

Descrierea produsului


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.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

17 Simulated annealing: Optimization beyond local minima
18 Genetic algorithms: Biologically inspired, fast-converging optimization
Advanced Algorithms and Data Structures introduces a collection of algorithms for complex programming challenges in data analysis, machine learning, and graph computing.

Summary
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. Advanced Algorithms and Data Structures teaches you powerful approaches to a wide range of tricky coding challenges that you can adapt and apply to your own applications. Providing a balanced blend of classic, advanced, and new algorithms, this practical guide upgrades your programming toolbox with new perspectives and hands-on techniques.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
