A Guide to Experimental Algorithmics

Buy

Computational experiments on algorithms can supplement theoretical analysis by showing what algorithms, implementations, and speed-up methods work best for specific machines or problems. This book guides the reader through the nuts and bolts of the major experimental questions: What should I measure? What inputs should I test? How do I analyze the data? To answer these questions the book draws on ideas from algorithm design and analysis, computer systems, and statistics and data analysis. The wide-ranging discussion includes a tutorial on system clocks and CPU timers, a survey of strategies for tuning algorithms and data structures, a cookbook of methods for generating random combinatorial inputs, and a demonstration of variance reduction techniques. Numerous case studies and examples show how to apply these concepts. All the necessary concepts in computer architecture and data analysis are covered so that the book can be used by anyone who has taken a course or two in data structures and algorithms. A companion website, AlgLab (www.cs.amherst.edu/alglab) contains downloadable files, programs, and tools for use in experimental projects.

Hybrid Methods in Pattern Recognition
Hybrid Methods in Pattern Recognition
The discipline of pattern recognition has seen enormous progress since its beginnings more than four decades ago. Over the years various approaches have emerged, based on statistical decision theory, structural matching and parsing, neural networks, fuzzy logic, artificial intelligence, evolutionary computing, and others. Obviously, these...

Bridging Laboratory and Field Research for Genetic Control of Disease Vectors (Wageningen UR Frontis Series)
Bridging Laboratory and Field Research for Genetic Control of Disease Vectors (Wageningen UR Frontis Series)

Contemporary research on genetic control of disease-transmitting insects knows two kinds of scientists: those that work in the laboratory and those known as ‘field people’. Over the last decade, both groups seem to have developed differing research priorities, address fundamentally different aspects within the overall discipline...
