Downloadable PDF version only
Want to kill it at your job interview in the tech industry?
Want to win that coding competition? Learn all the algorithmic techniques and programming skills you need from two experienced coaches, problem setters, and jurors for coding competitions.
The authors highlight the versatility of each algorithm by considering a variety of problems and show how to implement algorithms in simple and efficient code.
Readers can expect to master 128 algorithms in Python and discover the right way to tackle a problem and quickly implement a solution of low complexity.
Classic problems like Dijkstra’s shortest path algorithm and Knuth-Morris-Pratt’s string matching algorithm are featured alongside. Moreover, lesser-known data structures like Fenwick trees and Knuth’s dancing links are also in this Competitive Programming in Python book. The book provides a framework to tackle algorithmic problem solving, including Definition, Complexity, Applications, algorithms, Key Information, Implementation, Variants, In Practice, and Problems. Python code is included in the book and on the companion website.
