Jon Kleinberg's new Book
In honor of Jon Kleinberg's half-million dollar MacArthur Grant, I picked up his new book Algorithm Design. The first thing my coworker notices is a chapter on PSPACE. The first thing I notice is the discussion on Greedy Algorithms. The chapter starts out with a quote from the movie 'Wall Street': "Greed is.. good!"
Should provide some fun homework.
