About

Overview

At their most complex, algorithms are the step-by-step processes behind search engines, data compression, and more. However, algorithms are present in basic forms throughout our daily lives, like following a recipe or giving directions to your house. This book explains algorithms in understandable terms, provides examples of algorithms outside of computer science, describes how algorithms help computer programs complete tasks, and challenges readers to think critically about the effectiveness of particular algorithms over others.
