There a lot of books for algorithms, data structures. But for competitive programming need good math knowledge, also,

Which math books are best for competitive programming ??

I mean, there algebra, number theory, statistics, probability, arithmetic, computation geometry and etc...

This is (Conrcete-Mathematics) already good for me, now.

UPD: Number theory book. Rosen K.H. Elementary Number Theory

UPD-2: https://artofproblemsolving.com Thanks -emli- for good resource.

UPD-3: Matters Computational Thanks anta, for comment here

Thnx.

Can someone advise me some books for algorithms? I have T. Cormen's book, but it is very hard to understand.

Thanks.

    Competitive Programming 3 won't go as deep in algorithms as CLRS (isn't the actual focus of the book anyway), but it's way easier to comprehend and will help you at CP (duh).

i might also suggest "The Art of Computer Programming" by Donald E. Kunth, same author of Concrete Mathematics, pretty good book series :3
