Présentation de l'éditeur

There are many books on data structures and algorithms, and some books containing code for C libraries, but this book gives you a unique combination of theoretical background and working code. In offering robust solutions for everyday programming tasks, Mastering Algorithm C avoids the abstract style of most classic data structures and algorithms texts but still provides all the information you need to understand the purpose and use of common programming techniques. Implementations, as well as interesting, real-world examples of each data structure and algorithm, are shown in the text. Full source code appears on the accompanying disk. Using an exceptionally clean programming style and writing style, Kyle Loudon shows you how to use such essential data structures as lists, stacks, queues, sets, trees, heaps, priority queues, and graphs. He shows you how to use algorithms for sorting, searching, numerical analysis, data compression, data encryption, common graph problems, and computational geometry. He also describes the relative efficiency of all implementations. The compression and encryption chapters not only give you working code for reasonably efficient solutions, they explain concepts in an approachable manner for people who never have had the time or expertise to study them in depth. Anyone with a basic understanding of the C language can use this book. In order to provide maintainable and extendable code, an extra level of abstraction (such as pointers to functions) is used in examples where appropriate. Understanding that these techniques may be unfamiliar to some programmers, Loudon explains them clearly in the introductory chapters.

Exceptional writing, elegant code, great examples 13 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Mastering Algorithms in C is the most readable algorithms book I've ever encountered. Not only does the author have a tremendous command of English, he has a writing style that is simply a pleasure to read. The author also deserves mention as having one of the cleanest coding styles I've come across. Having taught and worked with computers for over 15 years, I've seen many. It is no easy feat to present the subject of algorithms using real C code in a consistently elegant manner. This book does it wonderfully. Another feature of the book that works exceptionally well is its detailed presentation of interesting (and I emphasize interesting) real-world examples of how various data structures and algorithms in the book are actually applied. I'm a computer science type, so I especially enjoyed the examples about virtual memory managers, lexical analyzers, and packet-switching over the Internet. But the book includes many other examples of more general interest. Students will find all of the examples particularly insightful. Although most of the code in the book does make use of many of the more advanced features of C, an inordinate number of comments have been included which should help even the feeblest of programmer carry on. In addition, there are two great chapters on pointers and recursion. Exceptional writing, elegant code, great examples, not to mention a lot of entertainment value -- O'Reilly has another winner here. I highly recommend it.

Helpful book on algorithms using C 2 mars 2001
Par Dr. Lee D. Carlson - Publié sur
Format: Broché
C programming is still with us because of its high performance ability and this book outlines several algorithms using the language. It begins with a classification of algorithms as randomized, divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming, greedy and approximation. Some algorithms the author states defy classiification but he does not give examples. Pointers are discussed in the next chapter, and covers how to avoid dangling pointers, memory allocation, pointers to data structures, function parameters, double pointers, and generic and function pointers. The chapter is clearly written and diagrams are used frequently to illustrate the uses and properties of pointers. The author in particular gives an excellent explanation of how C can simulate call-by-reference parameter passing. This capability in C can be a source of trouble to the newcomer to C. The author does not however discuss triple pointers in this chapter, in spite of their great utility in computational geometry and computational radiology. Void pointers and casting are discussed in detail though, and the author does a good job. Only a cursory discussion of function pointers is given; I would have preferred many more examples to be given. Recursion and tail-recursion are discussed in Chapter 3, with the factorial function used to illustrate the differences. Computational complexity and the O-notation are covered in the next chapter, with the treatment pretty sparse but clear. Linked lists, extremely useful in all areas of engineering and science, are discussed effectively in Chapter 5. Eleven linked list macross, thirteen doubly linked list macros, and eight circular list macros are discussed and the complexity of each given. Virtual memory and paging are given as examples of applications of linked lists. The author moves on to stacks in the next chapter with several stack macros outlined. FIFO queues are discussed but in view of their importance in network modeling not enough examples are given. A very interesting overview of how to implement sets as a data type in C is given in Chapter 7. I was not aware that such a construction could be done effectively in C so this chapter was of particular interest to me. All of the usual set operations are implemented using a number of diffrent macros. A clever set covering algorithm is given at the end of the chapter. Hashing and chain hash tables as arrays of linked lists are outlined in the next chapter. Hash functions are used heavily in such areas as cryptography and the author does a fine job of outlining their implementation. After a good discussion of trees, heaps, priority queues, and graphs, the author begins in the third part of the book with the actual implementationof many useful algorithms. The chapter on numerical methods could be more in depth because of its immmense importance and because C has been one of the best performers for the the time intensive calculations in this area. Huffman encoding and other compression algorithms are also treated with some detail. Several macros for bit operations are given and the ones discussed are helpful for the next chapter on encryption algorithms. The DES and RSA algorithms are treated in this chapter, but unfortunately elliptic curve encryption algorithms are not. The book ends with a fairly good overview of graph algorithms and algorithms in computatational geometry. This is really a pretty good book and gives a good overview of some very important algorithms, and all within a little over 500 pages. The only major omission was the lack of exercises/problems at the end of each chapter.

Fantastic addition to any personal libriuary. 9 mars 2000
Par B. S. Clewett - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Just what I needed. One of those books I had to ring in sick to work, sit at home and read.
Writing commercial c applications for the Internet, I was looking for a book to give me assistence with my coding. What I found was something which caused me to go back and rewrite a lot of my work!
Starting by explaining exactly how memory is managed when calling fuctions, going on to explain, in english, how many commonly used stuctures in c work. Everything from hash tables to encryption. A good read for anybody interested in how code works. Essential for anybody wishing to write quality programs.
The best bit. This comes with c libruaries uncompiled with examples, fully explained in the text. Many of which I have used. Reliable, easy to implement and dramatically increase the quality of my code. Want a easy to use binary search tree? A few minutes work and it's there.
I also emaild the author, who was more than happy to help with a question.
Personally speaking, one of the best computer books I have ever bought.

Stuff I have never seen before! 12 janvier 2000
Par SciFi Fan - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have read a half-dozen or more books pertaining to C Algorithms, and most of them were the same. This touched on the usual stuff - sorting, hashing, linked lists, etc. But it touched on these subjects in ways that are so general purpose that the sample code can be used with little modification! It also adds a couple of new things such as Set algorithms and an explaination of how to pass functions as paramenters to functions.
There could have been a few more examples, and he could have explained some of his material in plain english, instead of engineerese.
Overall the book is excellent, and I will refer to it often.

A small collection of over-commented code 5 juin 2000
Par Cris Luengo - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I hoped to find a broad overview of existing algorithms. Instead I got a small collection of over-commented code. It is true that this book contains some algorithms not discussed in similar books, but it also doesn't contain many algorithms that I consider a part of a programmer's standard toolbox. For example, there is no mention of string matching and searching. The author discusses an implementation of the LZ77 compression algorithm, but doesn't even give a hint as to the workings of related (better) algorithms. There is an implementation of the RSA public key encription, but no mention on how the private encription/public decription counterpart works. The discussion on hash tables only covers hash tables with linked lists, and not the easier to implement double hashing. And I could go on and on.
But the most annoying thing about the book is the author's commenting style, which render the code itself unreadable. Almost every instruction is commented by a 5-line high, 80-column wide comment block, exactly in the way that Rob Pike makes fun of in his "Notes on Programming in C" article, where he says: "Don't laugh now, wait until you see it in real life."
In short, I would only recommend this book to people wanting to learn some basic algorithms, but already have a strong sense of correct programming style.
