You'll explore algorithms that are useful in pure mathematics and learn how mathematical ideas can improve algorithms. You'll learn about an algorithm for generating continued fractions, one for quick calculations of square roots, and another for generating seemingly random sets of numbers.

You'll also learn how to:

- Use algorithms to debug code, maximize revenue, schedule tasks, and create decision trees;

- Measure the efficiency and speed of algorithms;

- Generate Voronoi diagrams for use in various geometric applications;

- Use algorithms to build a simple chatbot, win at board games, or solve sudoku puzzles;

- Write code for gradient ascent and descent algorithms that can find the maxima and minima of functions;

- Use simulated annealing to perform global optimization;

- Build a decision tree to predict happiness based on a person's characteristics.

Once you've finished this book you'll understand how to code and implement important algorithms as well as how to measure and optimize their performance, all while learning the nitty-gritty details of today's most powerful algorithms.
