All thought there is no text that covers the material we will present in this course the best fit is the book by T. Cormen, C. Leiserson, R. Rivest, C. Stein. We have decided not to assign a specific text book since none of the existing texts provides a particularly good match with the topics covered in 451.

We will provide lecture notes for the material covered in class, but some of you may want to do some additinal reading. Here is a list of some of the more popular texts that you might find helpful. Needless to say, the web is also an excellent source of information. Note, though, that not all sources on the web are completely reliable.
