Algorithms (MIT Press)
Monday, 24 August 2020

This book aims to offer an accessible introduction to algorithms, explaining not just what they are but how they work, with examples from a wide range of application areas. Arguing that every educated person today needs to have some understanding of algorithms and what they do, in this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Panos Louridas offers an introduction to algorithms that is accessible to the nonspecialist reader.

<ASIN:0262539020>

After discussing what an algorithm does and how its effectiveness can be measured, Louridas covers graphs, which describe networks; searching, and how to find the fastest way to search; and sorting, and the importance of choosing the best algorithm for particular tasks. He then presents larger-scale applications: PageRank, Google's founding algorithm; and neural networks and deep learning.
