'Elementary Algorithms' is a free book about elementary algorithms and data structures. This book doesn't only focus on an imperative (or procedural) approach, but also includes purely functional algorithms and data structures.

Each chapter comprises a separate study on some optimization problem giving both an introductory look into the theory the problem comes from and some new developments invented by authors. Usually some elementary knowledge is assumed.
