Meet Frank Runtime. Disgraced ex-detective. Hard-boiled deepest eye. seek expert.
When a theft hits police headquarters, it really is as much as Frank Runtime and his wide seek talents to capture the culprits. during this detective tale, you are going to how you can use algorithmic instruments to resolve the case. Runtime scours smugglers' boats with binary seek, tails spies with a seek tree, escapes a jail with depth-first seek, and choices locks with precedence queues. Joined by way of know-it-all rookie Officer Notation and inept tag-along Socks, he follows a chain of leads in a best-first seek that unravels a deep conspiracy. every one bankruptcy introduces an exciting twist matched with a brand new algorithmic idea, finishing with a technical recap.
Perfect for laptop technological know-how scholars and novice sleuths alike, The CS Detective provides an wonderful twist to studying algorithms.
Follow Frank's project and learn:
- The algorithms in the back of best-first and depth-first seek, iterative deepening, parallelizing, binary seek, and more
- Basic computational innovations like strings, arrays, stacks, and queues
- How to evolve seek algorithms to strange information structures
- The best algorithms to take advantage of in a given scenario, and while to use common sense heuristic methods
