On "Introduction to Algorithms"

Algorithms seems to be quite a mainstream discussion topic lately.

In the past week, I found no less than 4 posts relevant to this book “Introduction to Algorithms” from different sources.


And since in general it is all about programming and coding, I think I will just put those relevant links together for later read.


  1. Why did CLRS decide to co-author the Introduction to Algorithms? How long did it take from the beginning to the end?, http://www.quora.com/Why-did-CLRS-decide-to-coauthor-the-Introduction-to-Algorithms-How-long-did-it-take-from-the-beginning-to-the-end/answer/Thomas-Cormen-1
  1. THE PROGRAMMER’S PRICE, http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/11/24/programmers-price
  1. Khan Academy’s Algorithms section, https://www.khanacademy.org/computing/computer-science/algorithms
  1. There is also another piece of news about “Introduction to Algorithms” book’s co-author turn to crowd sourcing for input on what to be included/excluded in the next edition.  I couldn’t recall where I read it from but the quora thread in question is here http://www.quora.com/As-we-start-planning-the-next-edition-of-Introduction-to-Algorithms-CLRS-what-should-we-add-and-what-should-we-remove
