“Introduction to Algorithms, the ‘bible’ of the field, is a comprehensive textbook covering the full spectrum of modern algorithms: from the fastest algorithms and data structures to polynomial-time algorithms for seemingly intractable problems, from classical algorithms in graph theory to special algorithms for string matching, computational geometry, and number theory. The revised third edition notably adds a chapter on van Emde Boas trees, one of the most useful data structures, and on multithreaded algorithms, a topic of increasing importance.”
IIT Madras Tops in Industrial Consultancy Projects
The Indian Institute of Technology Madras has been going all out to promote a collaborative environment between industry and academia, a move that has helped it bag a significantly higher number of industrial consultancy projects.
According to National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) -2017 data shared by IIT Madras, the institute leads among the top five IITs in terms of both industrial consultancy projects as well as earnings through that route. In 2015-16, IIT Madras had 737 projects from 383 clients and received Rs 63.15 crore through industrial consultancy earnings.
