A friendly and accessible introduction to the most useful algorithms

Computer algorithms are the basic recipes for programming. Professional programmers need to know how to use algorithms to solve difficult programming problems. Written in simple, intuitive English, this book describes how and when to use the most practical classic algorithms, and even how to create new algorithms to meet future needs. The book also includes a collection of questions that can help readers prepare for a programming job interview.

  • Reveals methods for manipulating common data structures such as arrays, linked lists, trees, and networks
  • Addresses advanced data structures such as heaps, 2-3 trees, B-trees
  • Addresses general problem-solving techniques such as branch and bound, divide and conquer, recursion, backtracking, heuristics, and more
  • Reviews sorting and searching, network algorithms, and numerical algorithms
  • Includes general problem-solving techniques such as brute force and exhaustive search, divide and conquer, backtracking, recursion, branch and bound, and more

In addition, Essential Algorithms features a companion website that includes full instructor materials to support training or higher ed adoptions.

Your Hands-On Guide to Go, the Revolutionary New Language Designed for Concurrency, Multicore Hardware, and Programmer Convenience

Today’s most exciting new programming language, Go, is designed from the ground up to help you easily leverage all the power of today’s multicore hardware. With this guide, pioneering Go programmer Mark Summerfield shows how to write code that takes full advantage of Go’s breakthrough features and idioms.

Both a tutorial and a language reference, Programming in Go brings together all the knowledge you need to evaluate Go, think in Go, and write high-performance software with Go. Summerfield presents multiple idiom comparisons showing exactly how Go improves upon older languages, calling special attention to Go’s key innovations. Along the way, he explains everything from the absolute basics through Go’s lock-free channel-based concurrency and its flexible and unusual duck-typing type-safe approach to object-orientation.

Throughout, Summerfield’s approach is thoroughly practical. Each chapter offers multiple live code examples designed to encourage experimentation and help you quickly develop mastery. Wherever possible, complete programs and packages are presented to provide realistic use cases, as well as exercises. Coverage includes

Quickly getting and installing Go, and building and running Go programs Exploring Go’s syntax, features, and extensive standard library Programming Boolean values, expressions, and numeric types Creating, comparing, indexing, slicing, and formatting strings Understanding Go’s highly efficient built-in collection types: slices and maps Using Go as a procedural programming language Discovering Go’s unusual and flexible approach to object orientation Mastering Go’s unique, simple, and natural approach to fine-grained concurrency Reading and writing binary, text, JSON, and XML files Importing and using standard library packages, custom packages, and third-party packages Creating, documenting, unit testing, and benchmarking custom packages
