Editorial Review Amazon.com Review The focusof this book is to teach the reader how to identify, deal with, andunderstand the essence of NP-complete problems; Computers andIntractability does all of those things effectively. In a readableyet mathematically rigorous manner, the book covers topics such as howto prove that a given problem is NP-complete and how to cope withNP-complete problems. (There is even a chapter on advanced topics,with numerous references.) Computers and Intractability alsocontains a list of more than 300 problems--most of which are known tobe NP-complete--with comments and references. Customer Reviews (13)

Editorial Review Product Description This second edition of Grune and Jacobs’ brilliant work presents new developments and discoveries that have been made in the field. Parsing, also referred to as syntax analysis, has been and continues to be an essential part of computer science and linguistics. Parsing techniques have grown considerably in importance, both in computer science, ie. advanced compilers often use general CF parsers, and computational linguistics where such parsers are the only option. They are used in a variety of software products including Web browsers, interpreters in computer devices, and data compression programs; and they are used extensively in linguistics.

Very effective introduction to algorithms
still the classic
Not optional
The very classic The two books are quite different in the language and formalism used: more formal and mathematical inclined AHU with respect to CLR. I'd say, the very classic style of his authors who have made history in the CS literature with their books (particularly 2 on algorithms and data structures, 2 on Computer Theory, 2 on Compilers, 1 on CS foundations): as these books have been used in most universities around the world for decades, they've proved to be real milestones in the education of thousands of students. The books differ also in scope, since AHU is certainly not an encyclopedic collection as CLR does, with his roughly 500 pages against 1000. In spite of this, I'd point out the following: my textbook on Algorithms was CLR, but when we got to Complexity Classes (P-NP and theory behind) we "had" to switch to AHU for the simple reason that CLR did not almost mention at all Turing Machines nor Space Complexity, without which is certainly possible to learn e.g. about NP-TIME completeness, but without which, such a path would equally certainly miss some foundamental topics of Complexity Theory. All in all, then, imo the book truly deserves 5 stars (and perhaps it would deserve a second, updated, edition too ... possibly, imho, through a bit less revolutionary revision job than they did with "Introduction to Automata Theory, Language and Computation"). As a final note, those looking for a more applicative and self-reference than an educational introductory text, could have a look at the two-volumes opera by the former Knuth's pupil, Robert Sedgewick (possibly the more consolidated C or C++ versions).

Terrifying. I wish 0 stars was an option! If your instructor requires this book, youshould waste no time in writing nasty letters to his superiors. You are infor a real trial. Avoid this book at costs. ... Read more |
53. Formal Concept Analysis: Foundations and Applications (Lecture Notes in Computer Science / Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) | |

Editorial Review Product Description Formal concept analysis has been developed as a field of applied mathematics based on the mathematization of concept and concept hierarchy. It thereby allows us to mathematically represent, analyze, and construct conceptual structures. The formal concept analysis approach has been proven successful in a wide range of application fields. This book constitutes a comprehensive and systematic presentation of the state of the art of formal concept analysis and its applications. The first part of the book is devoted to foundational and methodological topics. The contributions in the second part demonstrate how formal concept analysis is successfully used outside of mathematics, in linguistics, text retrieval, association rule mining, data analysis, and economics. The third part presents applications in software engineering. |

Editorial Review Product Description University studies in computing require the ability to pass from a concrete problem to an abstract representation, reason with the abstract structure, and return with useful solutions to the specific situation. The tools for developing these skills are in part qualitative – concepts such as set, relation, function, and structures such as trees and well-founded orders. They are also in part quantitative – notably elementary combinatorics and finite probability. Recurring in all of these are instruments of proof, both purely logical ones (such as proof by contradiction) and mathematical (the various forms of induction). Features: • Explains the basic mathematical tools required by students as they set out in their studies of Computer or Information Science • Explores the interplay between qualitative thinking and calculation • Teaches the material as a language for thinking, as much as knowledge to be acquired • Uses an intuitive approach with a focus on examples for all general concepts • Provides numerous exercises, solutions and proofs to deepen and test the reader’s understanding • Includes highlight boxes that raise common queries and clear away confusions • Tandems with additional electronic resources including slides on author's website http://david.c.makinson.googlepages.com This easy-to-follow text allows readers to carry out their computing studies with a clear understanding of the basic finite mathematics and logic that they will need. Written explicitly for undergraduates, it requires only a minimal mathematical background and is ideal for self-study as well as classroom use. Customer Reviews (1)
