Alorithm Development

I'm working on real-time systems that require algorithm development...anyone know any websites/resources where I can chat with other people who do this?

I don't know exactly what kind of algorithm you are looking for, but I have used this resource with a lot of success.

The algorithm book by Cromen Leisersen Rivest might do you some good:

+1 for Rivest's algorithm book. Practice and theory explained well.

The books I refer most often to are Knuth's Art of Computer Programming (very theoretical, but it's a pleasant read) and Numerical Recipes in C.

I use Cormen and al. too, but to a lesser extent (although I used it a lot in grad school when I worked with graphs)

The best "practical" algorithms is Sedgewick's books -- "Algorithms in C" Parts 1-4 and 5.  He goes in enough theory to understand the algorithms, and actually covers the practical aspects of implementation, too.
