Item description for Algorithmics for Hard Computing Problems by Juraj Hromkovic...

This book is an introduction to the methods of designing algorithms for hard computing tasks. This area has developed very dynamically in the last years and is one of the kernels of current research in algorithm and complexity theory.
The book mainly concentrates on approximate, randomized and heuristic algorithms, and on the theoretical and experimental comparison of these approaches according to the requirements of the practice. There exist several monographs specializing in some of these methods, but no book systematically explains and compares all main possibilities of attacking hard computing problems. Since the topic is fundamental for the university study in computer science and essential for the transfer of formal methods to the practice, the aim of the book is to close this gap by providing at once a textbook for graduate students and a handbook for practitioners dealing with hard computing problems.

Reviews - What do customers think about Algorithmics for Hard Computing Problems?

Good Book for Advanced Computing  Feb 12, 2003
Algorithmics for Hard Problems addresses an important (if somewhat small) group of technical people who work exclusively on intractable problems. It takes a great deal of creativity and a large set of intellectual tools to make even modest progress on these problems. Prof. Hromkovic's book presents and organizes a big package of ideas and tools for approaching these problems. Even the last section, entitled "A Guide to Solving Hard Problems" addresses some of the practical issues of working on problems for which a completely satisfactory answer may be out of reach.

This book is especially helpful for software professionals solving difficult problems because it helps one to categorize and understand where the "pain points" can be found. In many software applications very hard problems are hidden within perfectly reasonable appearing and seemingly benign systems -- it's critical in these cases to correctly project the details of the problem onto a well defined set of basis tasks.
