Computer Programming Algorithms Directory
« on: September 07, 2006, 01:05:41 PM »
Here's a website that lists a few algorithms for specific tasks, categorized by subject. While the author hopes to "provide a comprehensive directory of web sites", the amount of information it contains is currently rather limited. If significant additional information is added, it might become a good resource. See what you think and perhaps can contribute.

Welcome to my computer programming algorithms directory. I am hoping to provide a comprehensive directory of web sites that detail algorithms for computer programming problems. If you know of any web sites that describe an algorithm (or multiple algorithms), please send me an e-mail: suggestion@algosort.com

yeah it's deffinitly missing allot. Where are all the 3d programming algorythms? Physics engine algorythms,... etc?

Here is a free book with a few algorithms, grouped in topics:
Quote
Chapter 0: Prologue
Chapter 1: Algorithms with numbers
Chapter 2: Divide-and-conquer algorithms
Chapter 3: Decompositions of graphs
Chapter 4: Paths in graphs
Chapter 5: Greedy algorithms
Chapter 6: Dynamic programming
Chapter 7: Linear programming
Chapter 8: NP-complete problems
Chapter 9: Coping with NP-completeness
Chapter 10: Quantum algorithms

The individual chapters and the book as a whole are available for download.

I have not looked into this book that much, I can't say if it's good or substantial. I think it's best to have several sources for algorithms because that way you usually also get several different examples which might help a lot.

Let's hope it's expanded.

NIST also has some form of algorithm thingy... many of the entries seem a bit short and stuff, though.
