Algorithms: Sequential and Parallel takes an innovative approach to a traditional algorithms-based course of study. This new approach addresses the changing challenges of computer scientists in the fields of computational science and engineering. With the onset of parallel computing becoming more mainstream, the authors address this dynamic by merging the application and analysis of algorithmic paradigms to both the (traditional) sequential model of computing and to a variety of parallel models. This book offers the student and the scientist an integrated coverage of a fundamental course in algorithms. The book was successfully class tested at both the undergraduate and graduate levels at the State University of New York at Buffalo. *The text offers a unified approach that relates sequential and parallel algorithms where appropriate and contrasts where appropriate. *Mathematical tools are developed in early chapters. *A variety of examples are worked out in great detail with multiple methods of solutions. *Sequential and parallel examples and exercises are featured. *Supplemental material is available for instructors. *A Prentice Hall Companion Website with additional material is a
