Lecture by Edsger W. Dijkstra. Presents two problems and shows how to design solutions for them. In the first, a game with colored pebbles is translated into a program. In the second, providing a theorem about colored points in the plane is translated into a programming task. Concentrates on invariance and termination respectively, the two essential components in each correctness proof

Beauty is our business : a birthday salute to Edsger W. Dijkstra by W. H. J Feijen( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and Italian and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than anything else, this book is a tribute to Edsger W. Dijkstra, on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday, by just a few of those fortunate enough to be influenced by him and his work and to be called his friend or relation, his master, colleague, or pupil. This book contains fifty-four technical contributions in different areas of endeavor, although many of them deal with an area of particular concern to Dijkstra: programming. Each contribution is relatively short and could be digested in one sitting. Together, they form a nice cross section of the discipline of programming at the beginning of the nineties. While many know of Dijkstra's technical contributions, they may not be aware of his ultimate goal, the mastery of complexity in mathematics and computing science. He has forcefully argued that beauty and elegance are essential to this mastery. The title of this book, chosen to reflect his ultimate goal, comes from a sentence in an article of his on some beautiful arguments using mathematical induction: " ... when we recognize the battle against chaos, mess, and unmastered complexity as one of computing sci- ence's major callings, we must admit that 'Beauty Is Our Business'."

Dijkstra recounts his early education and training as a theoretical physicist and as a 'programmer'. Dijkstra describes his work developing software for the Mathematical Centre in Amsterdam, the completion of his Ph.D. thesis, and his activities at several early information processing conferences. Dijkstra also discourses on the development of ALGOL 60 and the origins of computing science in Europe and America
