In the core computer science areas--data structures, graph and network algorithms, and computational geometry--LEDA is the first library to cover all material found in the standard textbooks. Written in C++ and freely available worldwide on a variety of hardware, the software is installed at hundreds of sites. This book, written by the main authors of LEDA, is the definitive account of how the system operates and how it can be used. The authors supply plentiful examples from a range of areas to show practical uses of the library, making the book essential for all researchers in algorithms, data structures and computational geometry.

LEDA is a library of efficient data types and algorithms and a platform for combinatorial and geometric computing. In each of the core areas of data structures, graph and network algorithms, and computational geometry, LEDA covers all (and more) that is found in the standard textbooks. LEDA is the first such library and this is the first book devoted to it. Written by the main authors of LEDA it is the definitive account, making the book essential for all workers in algorithms, data structures and computational geometry.Review:
"LEDA presents a different sort of library, namely, one that supports the type of programming that is the basis of our standard algorithm and data structures courses... LEDA, the book, complements LEDA, the library... I find it both highly commendable and also somewhat mind-boggling that well-known researchers will take time to contribute in substantialways to the practice: commendable, because such work contributes to the vitality and progress of the practical side of our discipline, while simultaneously validating the need for fundamental research; and mind-boggling because I can only imagine the investment of time such a project requires. A measure of LEDA'S success can ben found in its use. At the time the book was written over 1500 institutions had intalled LEDA on local systems... And so, my hat is off to Kurt Mehlhorn and Stefan Naher for their fine contribution to our discipline." SIGACT News
