"The book presents a welcome selection and careful exposition of material that can be (and is) covered in a single course...In this reviewer's opinion, this would be an interesting text to use with a group of advanced students well-grounded in undergraduate mathematics and computer science, and would produce a valuable course for the participating students." **â Computing Reviews**

"The reader has probably heard of the expression 'good things come in small packages.' The validity of that maxim is no more in evidence than in the work under review, which is nothing less than a mathematical wellspring among the otherwise parched world of theoretical algorithm analysis. In only 76 pages (not counting the bibliography and amazing appendices), the authors cover four important topics in algorithm analysis, all from a rudimentary, but highly original,

point of view: Binomial Identities, Recurrence Relations, Operator Methods, and Asymptotic Analysis. Each of these topics is critical to understanding the modern analysis of algorithms, primarily from the speed of execution perspective... In summary, the book under review should not be underestimated in its powerful use of mathematics for the analysis of algorithms arising from computer science considerations." **âTimothy Hall, Process Quality Improvement Consulting**

"The analysis of algorthms is possible on mathematical and on computer scientific ways. This [book] is a mathematical look at this topic. It is based on an advanced course in computer science at Stanford University... The Appendices contain further difficult problems for applying the methods of this outstanding, full-of-thoughts book." **âP.L. Erdos (Periodica Mathematica Hungarica)**
