Meet Frank Runtime. Disgraced ex-detective. Hard-boiled deepest eye. seek expert.

When a theft hits police headquarters, it truly is as much as Frank Runtime and his vast seek abilities to trap the culprits. during this detective tale, you are going to find out how to use algorithmic instruments to resolve the case. Runtime scours smugglers' boats with binary seek, tails spies with a seek tree, escapes a jail with depth-first seek, and choices locks with precedence queues. Joined by means of know-it-all rookie Officer Notation and inept tag-along Socks, he follows a chain of leads in a best-first seek that unravels a deep conspiracy. each one bankruptcy introduces an exhilarating twist matched with a brand new algorithmic inspiration, finishing with a technical recap.

Perfect for machine technological know-how scholars and beginner sleuths alike, The CS Detective provides an enjoyable twist to studying algorithms.

Follow Frank's venture and learn:

  • The algorithms at the back of best-first and depth-first seek, iterative deepening, parallelizing, binary seek, and more
  • Basic computational ideas like strings, arrays, stacks, and queues
  • How to conform seek algorithms to strange info structures
  • The best algorithms to take advantage of in a given state of affairs, and whilst to use common sense heuristic methods
