Recommended
This staple of algorithms courses everywhere, endearingly referred to as CLRS
after the last names of the authors, is perhaps the definitive work on
algorithms. A comprehensive book, it certainly cover your needs across
much of computer science. It also includes a variety of exercises
that you may find to be quite useful if you're studying algorithms outside the
classroom. This book covers everything from basic algorithmic analysis such
as bigO notation and its brethren to crucial and common algorithms
like search, sorting, techniques like dynamic
programming, and advanced data structures like Fibonacci heaps.


Conditionally Recommended
This is a great book if it suits your needsif you're writing code
using
numerical algorithms. Especially nice is that it includes source
code for the algorithms discussed. But if you're just looking for a
book of general algorithms, this book will not be a good fit.
