about

A Concise and Practical Introduction to Programming Algorithms in Java has two main goals. The first is for novice programmers to learn progressively the basic concepts underlying most imperative programming languages using Java. The second goal is to introduce new programmers to the very basic principles of thinking the algorithmic way and turning the algorithms into programs using the programming concepts of Java. The book is divided into two parts and includes: The fundamental notions of variables, expressions and assignments with type checking - Conditional and loop statements - Explanation of the concepts of functions with pass-by-value arguments and recursion - Fundamental sequential and bisection search techniques - Basic iterative and recursive sorting algorithms.Each chapter of the book concludes with a set of exercises to enable students to practice concepts covered.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is an excellent book. . The author takes an interesting and entirely appropriate approach to Java . . the book is designed primarily as a textbook for class use, a programmer experienced in another procedural or object-oriented language, who would like to get started with Java, could also use it. The examples and exercises are definitely a lot more interesting than those found in most books aimed at professionals . . I like this book and I recommend it." (Edgar R. Chavez, ACM Computing Reviews, August, 2009)
