**Design and Analysis of Computer Algorithms**

by David M. Mount

**Publisher**: University of Maryland 2003**Number of pages**: 135

**Description**:

Programming is a very complex task, and there are a number of aspects of programming that make it so complex. The first is that most programming projects are very large, requiring the coordinated efforts of many people. (This is the topic a course like software engineering.) The next is that many programming projects involve storing and accessing large quantities of data efficiently. (This is the topic of courses on data structures and databases.) The last is that many programming projects involve solving complex computational problems, for which simplistic or naive solutions may not be efficient enough. The complex problems may involve numerical data (the subject of courses on numerical analysis), but often they involve discrete data. This is where the topic of algorithm design and analysis is important.
