Programming skills are indispensable in today’s world, not just for computer science students, but also for anyone in any scientific or technical discipline. Introduction to Programming in Java, Second Edition, by Robert Sedgewick and Kevin Wayne is an accessible, interdisciplinary treatment that emphasizes important and engaging applications, not toy problems. The authors supply the tools needed for students and professionals to learn that programming is a natural, satisfying, and creative experience, and to become conversant with one of the world’s most widely used languages.
This example-driven guide focuses on Java’s most useful features and brings programming to life for every student in the sciences, engineering, and computer science.
- Basic elements of programming: variables, assignment statements, built-in data types, conditionals, loops, arrays, and I/O, including graphics and sound
- Functions, modules, and libraries: organizing programs into components that can be independently debugged, maintained, and reused
- Algorithms and data structures: sort/search algorithms, stacks, queues, and symbol tables
- Applications from applied math, physics, chemistry, biology, and computer science
