There are many distinct pleasures associated with computer programming Craftsm ship has its quiet rewards the satisfaction that comes from building a useful object and making it work Excitement arrives with the ash of insight that cracks a previously intractable problem The spiritual quest for elegance can turn the hacker into an artist Therearepleasuresinparsimony insqueezingthelastdropofperformanceoutofclever algorithms and tight coding Thegames puzzles andchallengesofproblemsfrominternationalprogrammingc petitionsareagreatwaytoexperiencethesepleasureswhileimprovingyouralgorithmic and coding skills This book contains over problems that have appeared in previous programming contests along with discussions of the theory and ideas necessary to tack them Instant online grading for all of these problems is available from two WWW robot judging sites Combining this book with a judge gives an exciting new way to challenge and improve your programming skills This book can be used for self study for teaching innovative courses in algorithms and programming and in training for international competition To the Reader Theproblemsinthisbookhavebeenselectedfromover programmingproblemsat the Universidad de Valladolid online judge available athttp online judge uva es The judgehasruledonwelloveronemillionsubmissionsfrom registeredusersaround the world to date We have taken only the best of the best the most fun exciting and interesting problems availa

Calculated Bets describes a gambling system that works Steven Skiena a jai alai enthusiast and computer scientist documents how he used computer simulations and modeling techniques to predict the outcome of jai alai matches and increased his initial stake by in one year Skiena demonstrates how his jai alai system functions like a stock trading system and includes examples of how gambling and mathematics interact in program trading systems how mathematical models are used in political polling and what the future holds for Internet gambling With humor and enthusiasm Skiena explains computer predictions used in business sports and politics and the difference between correlation and causation An unusual presentation of how mathematical models are designed built and validated Calculated Bets also includes a list of modeling projects with online data sources Steven Skiena Associate Professor of Computer Science at SUNY Stony Brook is the author of The Algorithm Design Manual Springer Verlag and the EDUCOM award winning Computational Discrete Mathematics He is the recipient of the ONR Young Investigator s Award and the Chancellor s Award for Excellence in Teaching at Stony Brook His research interests include discrete mathematics and its applications particularly the design of graph string and geometric algorithms

Is Hitler bigger than Napoleon Washington bigger than Lincoln Picasso bigger than Einstein Quantitative analysts are rapidly finding homes in social and cultural domains from finance to politics What about history In this fascinating book Steve Skiena and Charles Ward bring quantitative analysis to bear on ranking and comparing historical reputations They evaluate each person by aggregating the traces of millions of opinions just as Google ranks webpages The book includes a technical discussion for readers interested in the details of the methods but no mathematical or computational background is necessary to understand the rankings or conclusions Did you know Got a spare billion dollars and want to be remembered forever Your best investment is to get a university named after you Women remain significantly underrepresented in the historical record compared to men and have long required substantially greater achievement levels to get equally noted for posterity The long term prominence of Elvis Presley rivals that of the most famous classical composers Roll over Beethoven and tell Tchaikovsky the news Along the way the authors present the rankings of more than one thousand of history s most significant people in science politics entertainment and all areas of human endeavor Anyone interested in history or biography can see where their favorite figures place in the grand scheme of things While revisiting old historical friends and making new ones you will come to understand the forces that shape historical recognition in a whole new light

div This book concentrates on two distinct areas in discrete mathematics The first section deals with combinatorics loosely defined as the study of counting We provide functions for generating combinatorial objects such as permutations partitions and Young tableaux as well as for studying various aspects of these structures The second section considers graph theory which can be defined equally loosely as the study of binary relations We consider a wide variety of graphs provide functions to create them and functions to show what special properties they have Although graphs are combinatorial structures understanding them requires pictures or embeddings Thus we provide functions to create a variety of graph embeddings so the same structure can be viewed in several different ways Algorithmic graph theory is an important interface between mathematics and computer science and so we study a variety of polynominal and exponential time problems div

With examples of all functions in action plus tutorial text on the mathematics this book is the definitive guide to Experimenting with Combinatorica a widely used software package for teaching and research in discrete mathematics Three interesting classes of exercises are provided theorem proof programming exercises and experimental explorations ensuring great flexibility in teaching and learning the material The Combinatorica user community ranges from students to engineers researchers in mathematics computer science physics economics and the humanities Recipient of the EDUCOM Higher Education Software Award Combinatorica is included with every copy of the popular computer algebra system Mathematica

A Concise Introduction to Languages Machines and Logic provides an accessible introduction to three key topics within computer science formal languages abstract machines and formal logic Written in an easy to read informal style this textbook assumes only a basic knowledge of programming on the part of the reader br br The approach is deliberately non mathematical and features Clear explanations of formal notation and jargon Extensive use of examples to illustrate algorithms and proofs Pictorial representations of key concepts Chapter opening overviews providing an introduction and guidance to each topic End of chapter exercises and solutions Offers an intuitive approach to the topics br br This reader friendly textbook has been written with undergraduates in mind and will be suitable for use on course covering formal languages formal logic computability and automata theory It will also make an excellent supplementary text for courses on algorithm complexity and compilers

El medio perfecto para mejorar la destreza en la programacion El estudio de los multiples desafios que representan los problemas de los concursos internacionales es un camino eficiente para mejorar las habilidades en algoritmica y programacion Las companias de informatica utilizan problemas similares a los de los concursos para motivar el estudio de algoritmos programacion y otros temas de ciencias de la computacion El libro incluye mas de problemas organizados por temas y complementados con material de apoyo teorico y practico Los lectores aprenden a la vez los algoritmos y las tecnicas de programar
