The Art of Computer ProgrammingSite offer Donald E. Knuth is known throughout the world for his pioneering work on algorithms and programming techniques, for his invention of the Tex and Metafont systems for computer typesetting, and for his prolific and influential writing, most notiably The Art of Computer Programming. This multivolume work on the analysis of algorithms has long been recognized as the definitive description of classical computer science.

The three complete volumes published to date already comprise a unique and invaluable resource in programming theory and practice. Countless readers have spoken about the profound personal influence of Knuth's writings. Scientists have marveled at the beauty and elegance of his analysis, while practicing programmers have successfully applied his "cookbook" solutions to their day-to-day problems.

And now, we can take a first look at the eagerly anticipated Volume 4 of The Art of Computer Programming. For the fourth and later volumes of the set, and to update parts of the existing three, Knuth has created a series of small books called fascicles, which will be published at regular intervals. Each fascicle will encompass a section or more of wholly new or revised material. You can find the two first installments below with the usual 30 per cent off Register bookshop discount.
