This book provides implementations of common and uncommon algorithms in pseudocode which is language independent and provides for easy porting to most imperative programming languages. It is not a definitive book on the theory of data structures and algorithms.
For the most part this book presents implementations devised by the authors themselves based on the concepts by which the respective algorithms are based upon so it is more than possible that our implementations differ from those considered the norm.
You should use this book alongside another on the same subject, but one that contains formal proofs of the algorithms in question. In this book we use the abstract big Oh notation to depict the run time complexity of algorithms so that the book appeals to a larger audience.
