Encyclopedia of Algorithms?

Postby Cleverbeans » Wed Jun 16, 2010 3:14 pm UTC

I'm wondering if their are any established reference materials on algorithms in current publication that are specifically designed for fast lookups and comparisons between algorithmic choices. I'm think about how tables of integrals used to be documented for quick lookup once they'd been established. There seem to be some good textbooks on the subject, but I'm looking for something less verbose, no need for proofs or explanations. Is their anything like that out there?

Just google "encyclopedia of algorithms pdf"--you'll get some torrents as the first few items; if your page ranks are the same as mine, the first one should have some free links.

You don't become great by trying to be great. You become great by wanting to do something, and then doing it so hard you become great in the process.

I've found the Dictionary of Algorithms and Datastructures to be occasionally useful.

With any luck, in a few years, we won't need this because we'll be able to generate them on the fly. So if you can't find somethng you like, sit back and wait :P
