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

When a theft hits police headquarters, it is as much as Frank Runtime and his vast seek abilities to seize the culprits. during this detective tale, you are going to 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 alternatives locks with precedence queues. Joined via 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 technology scholars and beginner sleuths alike, The CS Detective provides an exciting twist to studying algorithms.

Follow Frank's project and learn:

  • The algorithms in 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 information structures
  • The most productive algorithms to exploit in a given scenario, and while to use common sense heuristic methods
