Art of Computer Programming, Volume 4, Fascicle 3, TheSite offer Donald Knuth's Art of Computer Programming books have 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 marvelled at the beauty nd elegance of his analysis, while practicing programmers have successfully applied his “cookbook” solutions to their day-to-day problems. All have admired Knuth for the breadth, clarity, accuracy, and good humour found in his books.

To begin the fourth and later volumes of the set Knuth has created a series of small books called fascicles. Volume 4, Fascicle 2 published earlier this year, covering the generation of all tuples and permutations. In Volume 4, Fascicle 3 this is now complemented by techniques for generating all combinations and partitions. In Knuth's thorough discussion of these two topics, readers will find much that is new, as well as surprisingly rich ties to material in Volumes 1 through 3 and to other aspects of computer science and mathematics.
