Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"Addressing mathematical concepts, algorithms and C/C++ code is not a simple task; the author handles them well throughout the book. This book is translated from German by David Kramer. … A well written book that addresses the intended purpose. … A beginner or intermediate level C/C++ programmer can follow the text." (S. Terai, SIGACT News, Vol. 39 (1), 2008)
