## Academic papers that describe 3D bin-packing algorithms?

I'd like to find academic papers that describe 3D bin-packing algorithms clearly enough to be implemented. In particular, I'm looking for algorithms suitable for packing 3D cuboid objects that can be rotated into known, pre-set bins. [more inside]

## Hiring a programmer for a clinical project?

I'm working with a professor of medicine, and she has a clinical decision algorithm that needs to be turned into a website with a database backend. We need to find a person. [more inside]

## Which algorithms changed the world?

A recent post to the blue proposed a set of equations that changed the word. As a computer professional, I'm curious, which algorithms transformed the world? [more inside]

## Recommend a programmer a book that teaches high school maths step by step

Can you recommend a programmer a book that teaches high school maths step by step? I did maths at high scool and I was OK at it. However, fifteen years later, after forgetting almost all the maths I learnt back then, I am diving deep into the theory of programming algorithms (sorting, tree structures, graph algorithms and so forth). I find the programming straight forward, but I am struggling with the theory and proof of algorithmic time and space complexities. I am looking for a book that will cover algebra, logs, limits, inductive proof, matrix manipulation and so forth. [more inside]

## What looks good with #AFC398?

Programmers: know any good algorithms for picking colors, modifying colors or choosing colors that go well together? This is specifically for code.

**I'm NOT looking for apps that let you choose colors.**[more inside]## West with the Night, or East or North or South

Posting for brand-new user mdonnahoo, who will answer any queries in the thread: I am writing a program to determine how much time in a flight from Point X to Point Y occurs at night for pilot logging purposes. Is there an elegant way to calculate this? [more inside]

## Writing a front-end

I'm looking to write a graphical front-end for a text-based data fitting and plotting program. Is it better to program an interface from scratch or write an extension for a plotting program such as Igor, Origin, Mathematica, etc.? [more inside]

## I am struggling with relatively simple algorithms. Am I doomed?

ProgrammingFilter: Just how lame is it that I can't come up with (create from scratch) a string matching algorithm? Can I still become a programmer? I need your honesty. [more inside]

## Math equation / algorithm for a database

I'm looking for some help with a math equation / algorithm I'm trying to create. I'm a programmer by trade and not very good at math so I'd like some help with this or perhaps a site where I could pay someone to come up with the equation I'm looking for. I considered rentacoder or elance however I'd be concerned if the companies there had the proper math knowledge. A lot of claims get made on those sites that turn out to be false. [more inside]

## Learning Programming/Logic/Algorithms by Yourself (preferably practice programs to write)?

Im a Freshman Computer Engin. Major and I want to learn more programming/logic by myself. Any books/Resources/Sample Projects you might recommend? [more inside]

## A brush-up on algorithms...

Imagine: You have an upcoming interview that will be heavily focused on algorithms (specifically computer language related but not a specific language). What resources would you turn to?

## Algorithm to display a schedule calendar with specific constraints

I've charged with adding a feature to a shift scheduler / coverage requestor that displays shift information for a given week. I've been able to display them so as to satisfy the constraints I've been given, but it's got me wondering wondering if there's a more rigorous/mathematical approach to the general problem of organizing the display of any such calendar information.

## Balls in boxes algorithm

Is there a standard ball picking algorithm? I have 10 balls that I want put in four boxes (A-D). Every box can hold zero to all balls. [more inside]

## How can I find out if someone's already solved this (fairly specific) programming problem?

I have many short strings of varying lengths — between a dozen and a few hundred, most likely — and one long string. I need to write code that will find a way to assemble a copy of the long string using as few of the short strings as possible. If it's not possible to assemble a complete copy of the long string, it should assemble a copy with as few and as small gaps as possible. [more inside]

## Algorithm for file comparison

I'm looking for the appropriate algorithm to use to compare two files. I think I can do better than

`diff`

due to some added constraints. [more inside]## I'm spaced out!

Programming/geometry: in a Flash program (you don't need to know Flash to answer this), I'm trying to place rectangular images at random positions on the screen. There are already images on the screen. I need to make sure that the new, randomly-placed images don't obscure the images already there. [more inside]

## Algorithms

Programming Filter: I need some advice on a tree-building algorithm. (Tree as in the "+" and the tree branches out, like in Windows Explorer.) The language is PHP, but since I'm looking for an algorithm rather than actual code, any programmer with mad skills should be able to help. More inside. [more inside]
