Algorithms Illuminated, Part 3 (Soundlikeyourself Publishing)
Monday, 13 May 2019

Subtitled "Greedy Algorithms and Dynamic Programming", this book, based on Professor Tim Roughgarden's Stanford/Coursera MOOC, sets out to be an accessible, no-nonsense, and programming language-agnostic introduction to algorithms. The book includes hints or solutions to all quizzes and problems, and a series of YouTube videos accompanies the book. Part 3 covers greedy algorithms (scheduling, minimum spanning trees, clustering, Huffman codes) and dynamic programming (knapsack, sequence alignment, shortest paths, optimal search trees).
