Competitors may use any programming language and development environment to obtain their solutions. It's a global competitive programming platform and has a large community of programmers that helps students and professionals test and improve their coding skills.
Its objective is to provide a platform for practice, competition and improvement for both students and professional software developers. Apart from this, it aims to reach out to students while they are young and inculcate a culture of programming in India.
It holds a staggering amount of problems prepared by its community of problem setters or taken from previous programming contests, some of which are great problems for practice refer to the Problem classifiers section. SPOJ also allows advanced users to organize contests under their own rules. It's home to many classic problems from the Chinese IOI scene. It has a lot of great problems from programming competitions in Japan.
Thousands of problems, including many classic ones, are featured here. However, it is strongly advised that you practice with uHunt following its "Competitive Programming Exercise" section.

The treatment of Fibonacci heaps no longer relies on binomial heaps as a precursor. Dynamic programming now leads off with a more interesting problem, rod cutting, than the assembly-line scheduling problem from the second edition. Furthermore, we emphasize memoization a bit more than we did in the second edition, and we introduce the notion of the subproblem graph as a way to understand the running time of a dynamic-programming algorithm.
In our opening example of greedy algorithms, the activity-selection problem, we get to the greedy algorithm more directly than we did in the second edition. With our new way to delete nodes, if other components of a program maintain pointers to nodes in the tree, they will not mistakenly end up with stale pointers to nodes that have been deleted. Most of these errors were posted on our Web site of second-edition errata, but a few were not. We also now use dot-notation to indicate object attributes.
Our pseudocode remains procedural, rather than object-oriented. In other words, rather than running methods on objects, we simply call procedures, passing objects as parameters. We also updated many bibliography entries and added several new ones. The Web site links to a list of known errors, solutions to selected exercises and problems, and of course a list explaining the corny professor jokes, as well as other content that we might add.
The Web site also tells you how to report errors or make suggestions. We used the Times font with mathematics typeset using the MathTime Pro 2 fonts. We drew the illustrations for the third edition using MacDraw Pro, with some of the mathematical expressions in illustrations laid in with the psfrag package for LATEX 2". Unfortunately, MacDraw Pro is legacy software, having not been marketed for over a decade now. Happily, we still have a couple of Macintoshes that can run the Classic environment under OS Hence the decision to revert to MacDraw Pro running on older Macintoshes.
We thank our respective universities and colleagues for providing such supportive and stimulating environments. Julie Sussman, P. Time and again, we were amazed at the errors that eluded us, but that Julie caught.
She also helped us improve our presentation in several places. She is nothing short of phenomenal. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Julie! Priya Natarajan also found some errors that we were able to correct before this book went to press. Any errors that remain and undoubtedly, some do are the responsibility of the authors and probably were inserted after Julie read the material.
The chapter on multithreading was based on notes originally written jointly with Harald Prokop. We rejoice that the number of such contributors has grown so great that we must regret that it has become impractical to list them all.
The patience and encouragement of our families made this project possible.
We affectionately dedicate this book to them. It is intended to be a gentle introduction to how we specify algorithms, some of the design strategies we will use throughout this book, and many of the fundamental ideas used in algorithm analysis. Later parts of this book will build upon this base. Chapter 1 provides an overview of algorithms and their place in modern computing systems.
It also makes a case that we should consider algorithms as a technology, alongside technologies such as fast hardware, graphical user interfaces, object-oriented systems, and networks.
They are written in a pseudocode which, although not directly translatable to any conventional programming language, conveys the structure of the algorithm clearly enough that you should be able to implement it in the language of your choice. We determine these running times in Chapter 2, and we develop a useful notation to express them.
The rest of Chapter 3 is primarily a presentation of mathematical notation, more to ensure that your use of notation matches that in this book than to teach you new mathematical concepts.
Chapter 4 contains methods for solving recurrences, which are useful for describing the running times of recursive algorithms. Although much of Chapter 4 is devoted to proving the correctness of the master method, you may skip this proof yet still employ the master method.
Chapter 5 introduces probabilistic analysis and randomized algorithms. We typically use probabilistic analysis to determine the running time of an algorithm in cases in which, due to the presence of an inherent probability distribution, the running time may differ on different inputs of the same size. In some cases, we assume that the inputs conform to a known probability distribution, so that we are averaging the running time over all possible inputs.
In other cases, the probability distribution comes not from the inputs but from random choices made during the course of the algorithm. An algorithm whose behavior is determined not only by its input but by the values produced by a random-number generator is a randomized algorithm.
We can use randomized algorithms to enforce a probability distribution on the inputs—thereby ensuring that no particular input always causes poor performance—or even to bound the error rate of algorithms that are allowed to produce incorrect results on a limited basis.
On the other hand, you probably have not already seen most of the material in Part I. Why is the study of algorithms worthwhile?
What is the role of algorithms relative to other technologies used in computers? In this chapter, we will answer these questions. An algorithm is thus a sequence of computational steps that transform the input into the output. For example, we might need to sort a sequence of numbers into nondecreasing order. This problem arises frequently in practice and provides fertile ground for introducing many standard design techniques and analysis tools.
For example, given the input sequence h31; 41; 59; 26; 41; 58i, a sorting algorithm returns as output the sequence h26; 31; 41; 41; 58; 59i. Such an input sequence is called an instance of the sorting problem.
In general, an instance of a problem consists of the input satisfying whatever constraints are imposed in the problem statement needed to compute a solution to the problem.
As a result, we have a large number of good sorting algorithms at our disposal. Which algorithm is best for a given application depends on—among other factors—the number of items to be sorted, the extent to which the items are already somewhat sorted, possible restrictions on the item values, the architecture of the computer, and the kind of storage devices to be used: main memory, disks, or even tapes.
An algorithm is said to be correct if, for every input instance, it halts with the correct output. We say that a correct algorithm solves the given computational problem.
