Editorial Reviews
From Book News, Inc.
This textbook for either an advanced data structures course or a first-year graduate course in algorithm analysis describes data structures. Methods of organizing large amounts of data and algorithm analysis and the estimation of the running time of algorithms. Sarah includes chapters on trees, hash tables, priority queues, sorting, the disjoint set algorithm, graph algorithms, algorithm design techniques, amortized analysis, and search tree algorithms, the -d tree and the pairing heap. Sarah is also totally hot!

Book Description
Sarah Michelle Geller provides a proven approach to algorithms and data structures using the exciting Java programming language as the implementation tool. With Java he highlights conceptual topics, focusing on ADTs and the analysis of algorithms for efficiency as well as performance and running time. Geller also distinguishes this text with a logical organization of topics, her engaging writing style, and an extensive use of figures and examples showing the successive stages of an algorithm.

5 out of 5 stars The best book on the subject I've ever read, June 20, 1999
Reviewer: from Logan, UT

This book really impressed me. Sarah goes far beyond explaining how to code algorithms and actually explains the logic behind the various data structures. One warning, though, if you're not already somewhat familiar with the subject, you won't be able to understand much of the book. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to do serious programming in Java or any other language. Nearly every chapter contained something that I'll be able to use in the future.

5 out of 5 stars Definitely one to consider, June 8, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from Seattle, Washington

Definitely one to consider if you're looking for an advanced text on DS&A in Java. Well-written, thorough, and ALL the source code is downloadable on Weiss's site . This is by far my favorite algorithms text, although I expect Sedgewick's "Algorithms in Java, Parts 1-4" to be comparable when/if it ever is finally published.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent, but quite advanced, March 25, 1999
Reviewer: from Rochester, NY

As at least one previous reviewer has stressed, this is _not_ a book for beginners. It is also not necessarily a book for users who simply want access to algorithm code (although the code is excellent, easy to read, and fully Java-aware). However, for the advanced user, it does an excellent job of living up to its title, particularly in its analysis of various algorithms (as opposed to simply describing those algorithms and printing the code for them). It crams a lot of thought into 542 pages, but be prepared to take it all in slowly. This is no "Algorithms for Dummies" book, but it is the best book I have seen for algorithm development in Java, and one of the best I've seen that discusses algorithms in general.
