The Art of Computer Programming. Vol 1: Fundamental Algorithms. 2nd Printing.
Fundamental Algorithms begins with mathematical preliminaries. The first section offers a good grounding in a variety of useful mathematical tools: proof techniques, combinatorics, and elementary number theory. Knuth then details the MIX processor, a virtual machine architecture that serves as the programming target for subsequent...
Digital Dice: Computational Solutions to Practical Probability Problems
"Paul Nahin's Digital Dice is a marvelous book, one that is even better than his Duelling Idiots. Nahin presents twenty-one great probability problems, from George Gamow's famous elevator paradox (as corrected by Donald Knuth) to a bewildering puzzle involving two rolls of toilet paper, and he solves them all with the aid...
The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 4A: Combinatorial Algorithms, Part 1
The TITLE of Volume 4 is Combinatorial Algorithms, and when I proposed it I was strongly inclined to add a subtitle: The Kind of Programming I Like Best. Mv editors have decided to tone down such exuberance, but the fact remains that programs with a combinatorial flavor have always been my favorites.
On the other hand I've...
