Hello Daniel.

Thanks for the great book. This book uses C language so i hope we can use Golang also .
Does book assumes any prerequisites ? like discrete math  etc ?

You should be able lo translate the code into a different language. Somebody said elseewhere that the amount of code shown is small.

Hi Arjunkumar and all,

(I really have to learn more about Go.)

No discrete math prereqs here. I kept math to a minimum. No theorems, lemmas, proofs...

At the same time, I wanted the book to be precise.

One of my fears while writing the book was that I'd make it too imprecise for algorithms teachers, but too detailed for practicing programmers. Readers will let me know whether I've managed a balance here. I did ask an algorithms professor to write the foreword for me, and got feedback from competitive programmers, but I'll always need more feedback from new learners.

Thank you,
Dan
