Chossing the right algorithm and associated data structures lies at the heart of computer programming. Providing one of the most accurate sources for comparing the performance of different algorithms, the new edition of the Handbook of Algorithms and Data Structures In Pascal and C has now been brought up to date with recent results. All the algorithms within the book are coded in Pascal and C.

Highlights of the book include:

This book is an indispensable guide and reference for all computer science students, researchers and professional programers alike. It assumes some knowledge of programming in a high-level language and some familiarity with data structures.
