Robert Sedgewick has been a Professor of Computer Science at Princeton University since 1985, where he was the founding Chairman of the Department of Computer Science and is now the William O. Baker Professor of Computer Science. He has held visiting research positions at Xerox PARC, Institute for Defense Analyses, and INRIA, and is a member of the board of directors of Adobe Systems. Professor Sedgewick’s research interests include analytic combinatorics, design and analysis of data structures and algorithms, and program visualization. He has written sixteen books, including Introduction to Programming in Java: An Interdisciplinary Approach (with Kevin Wayne), Analytic Combinatorics (with Philippe Flajolet), An Introduction to the Analysis of Algorithms (with Philippe Flajolet), and Algorithms, Fourth Edition (with Kevin Wayne).
Kevin Wayne is the Phillip Y. Goldman Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at Princeton University, where he has been teaching since 1998. He was won several teaching awards at Princeton, including the Distinguished Teacher Award, the Phi Beta Kappa Teaching Award (joint with Robert Sedgewick), and an Excellence in Teaching Award. He received a Ph.D. in operations research and industrial engineering from Cornell University. His research interests include the design, analysis, and implementation of algorithms, especially for graphs and discrete optimization. He is the coauthor (with Robert Sedgewick) of Introduction to Programming in Java: An Interdisciplinary Approach and Algorithms, Fourth Edition.
