None of my textbooks had done this. It’s an extension to the Author Profile feature that was introduced some years ago: It’s impossible for me to thank adequately all of the wonderful people who contributed their time to making this event such a stunning success, certainly one of the greatest highlights of my life.

The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 1: These so-called “SAT solvers” can now routinely find solutions to practical problems that involve millions of variables and were thought until very recently to be hopelessly difficult. Each fascicle encompasses a section or more fascic,e wholly new or revised material. It introduces and surveys “Satisfiability,” one of the most fundamental problems in all of computer science: Over the years, many people have told me how they’ve greatly appreciated this feature of my books.


Knuth began the project, originally conceived as a single book with twelve chapters, in This page was last edited on 31 Decemberat After winning a Westinghouse Talent Search scholarship, Knuth enrolled at the Case Institute of Technology now Case Western Reserve Universitywhere his performance was so outstanding that the faculty ddonald to award him a master of science upon his completion of the baccalaureate degree. Ed Dunne has given nice step-by-step instructions together with several well-chosen examples.

Description This multivolume work on the analysis of algorithms has long been recognized as the definitive description of classical computer science.

The Art of Computer Programming, Vol. I still cling to a belief that these details are extremely instructive, and I’m uncomfortable with the prospect of printing a hardcopy edition with fasciccle many exercises unvetted.

All have admired Knuth for the breadth, clarity, accuracy, and good humor found in his books. Donald Ervin Knuth is known throughout the world for his pioneering work on algorithms and programming techniques, for his invention of th TeX and Metafont systems for computer typesetting, and for his prolific and influential writing.

In order to relieve the tedium of index preparation, and to underscore the fact that my index was trying to be complete, I decided to include the full name of every author who was cited, whenever possible.


Just go to http: Please don’t be alarmed by the highly technical nature of these examples; more than of the other odnald are completely non-scaryindeed quite elementary.

The four volumes published to date already comprise a unique and invaluable resource in programming theory and practice. The fascicle also presents new material on subroutines, coroutines, and interpretive routines. Knuth was awarded the Turing Award “for his major contributions to the analysis of algorithms […], and in particular for his contributions to the ‘art of computer programming’ through his well-known books in a continuous series by this title. The rest of us shouldn’t have to wait to learn your full name until Kmuth has a page for you.

Ultimately, the content of these fascicles will be rolled up into the comprehensive, final versions of each volume, and the enormous undertaking that began in will be complete.

Another characteristic of the volumes is the variation in the difficulty of the exercises.
