Book Overview

Robert Sedgewick and Kevin Wayne's Computer Science: An Interdisciplinary Approach is the ideal modern introduction to computer science with Java programming for both students and professionals. Taking a broad, applications-based approach, Sedgewick and Wayne teach through important examples from science, mathematics, engineering, finance, and commercial computing.

The book demystifies computation, explains its intellectual underpinnings, and covers the essential elements of programming and computational problem solving in today's environments. The authors begin by introducing basic programming elements such as variables, conditionals, loops, arrays, and I/O. Next, they turn to functions, introducing key modular programming concepts, including components and reuse. They present a modern introduction to object-oriented programming, covering current programming paradigms and approaches to data abstraction.

Building on this foundation, Sedgewick and Wayne widen their focus to the broader discipline of computer science. They introduce classical sorting and searching algorithms, fundamental data structures and their application, and scientific techniques for assessing an implementation's performance. Using abstract models, readers learn to answer basic questions about computation, gaining insight for practical application. Finally, the authors Read More chevron_right
