From the Book Description:
Based on the authors' extensive teaching of algorithms and data structures, this text aims to show a sample of the intellectual demands required by a computer science curriculum, and to present issues and results of lasting value, ideas that will outlive the current generation of computers. Sample exercises, many with solutions, are included throughout the book.
