We would like to thank the book reviewers for their attention to detail and suggestions, which improved the presentation and removed defects from earlier drafts: Alan Davidson, Scot Drysdale, Krzysztof Duleba, Gene Hughes, Murali Mani, Jeffrey Yasskin, and Daniel Yoo.
George Heineman would like to thank those who helped instill in him a passion for algorithms, including Professors Scot Drysdale (Dartmouth College) and Zvi Galil (Columbia University). As always, George thanks his wife, Jennifer, and his children, Nicholas (who always wanted to know what "notes" Daddy was working on) and Alexander (who was born as we prepared the final draft of the book).
Gary Pollice would like to thank his wife Vikki for 40 great years. He also wants to thank the WPI computer science department for a great environment and a great job.
Stanley Selkow would like to thank his wife, Deb. This book was another step on their long path together.
