Dear 100 Hour Board CS folk,

What are the key differences between CLRS and Algorithms Unlocked by Cormen?



Dear Raskillion,

Well, I'm learning Python so does that make me a CS folk person? Probably not, because I'm not actually very technologically adept. 

Either way, I regret to inform you that I don't even really know what the things referenced in your question mean. And considering this question is well over 200 hours it would appear as those who do know aren't going to answer. But this is the 100 Hour Board, and we get questions we don't know the answers to all the time! So I will do my best to provide a response that actually addresses your query.

From reading the brief overviews of both books, it seems like CRLS is more rigorous and complex. Speaking of algorithms, did you know that there are algorithms that converge quadratically? Or have convergence of even higher orders? Also it's very important to keep track of temporal and spatial complexity. Anyways, I could go on that line for quite some time, but I think I'll stop now.
