## The Art of Computer ProgrammingThe first revision of this third volume is the most comprehensivesurvey of classical computer techniques for sorting and searching. It extends thetreatment of data structures in Volume 1 to consider both large and smalldatabases and internal and external memories. The book contains a selection ofcarefully checked computer methods, with a quantitative analysis of theirefficiency. Outstanding features of the second edition include a revised sectionon optimum sorting and new discussions of the theory of permutations and ofuniversal hashing. |
