RenatoBA's blog

I am currently working on a software engineering degree. Most of the knowledge relevant to CP I have I got by trial and error, after reading many people's code and understading what they did. Do you have some recommendations of text books I can read that will help me mature my knowledge in computer science and math concepts related to competitive programming?

The three main English books that are specifically about CP, not just about math/algorithms in general, are:

If you find regular math/algorithms textbooks to be difficult to apply to CP, then you may find those books useful. They aren't as comprehensive as well-known books like CLRS or Knuth, but they'll point you more directly to CP concepts.

But textbooks are just a way to get started. Getting better at CP still requires online research and reading other people's submissions. It's the nature of the topic.
