Most widely held works by Donald Ervin Knuth
The art of computer programming by Donald Ervin Knuth( Book )
308 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 4,888 libraries worldwide
Knuth's multivolume work is widely recognized as the definitive description of classical computer science: at the end of 1999, these books were named among the best twelve physical-science monographs of the century by American Scientist. The three volumes included in this set have each been revised recently to reflect developments in the field. As earlier editions clearly demonstrated, they comprise an invaluable resource in programming theory and practice for students, researchers, and practitioners alike. Countless readers have spoken about the profound personal influence of Knuth's work. Scientists have marveled at the beauty and elegance of his analysis, while ordinary programmers have successfully applied his "cookbook" solutions to their day-to-day problems. All have admired Knuth for the breadth, clarity, accuracy, and good humor found in his books.--Cover

Mathematics for the analysis of algorithms by Daniel H Greene( Book )
52 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in English and German and held by 1,096 libraries worldwide
"A quantitative study of the efficiency of computer methods requires an in-depth understanding of both mathematics and computer science. This monograph, derived from an advanced computer science course at Stanford University, builds on the fundamentals of combinatorial analysis and complex variable theory to present many of the major paradigms used in the precise analysis of algorithms, emphasizing the more difficult notions. The authors cover recurrence relations, operator methods, and asymptotic analysis in a format that is terse enough for easy reference yet detailed enough for those with little background. Approximately half the book is devoted to original problems and solutions from examinations given at Stanford."--Publisher's website

A=B by Marko Petkovšek( Book )
3 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Japanese and held by 465 libraries worldwide
In the area of combinatorial identities computers are able to find very elegant proofs of difficult theorems unassisted by human intervention. This autonomy means that not only is it possible to use a PC to find such a proof, but also the proof can be checked easily. This book shows how several recently developed computer algorithms can master the difficult job of simplifying complex summations and if there is no such simplification they will prove this to be the case. The authors present the underlying mathematical theory of these methods, the principle theorems and proofs, and include a package of computer programs that can do these tasks

The Stanford GraphBase : a platform for combinatorial computing by Donald Ervin Knuth( Book )
20 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 449 libraries worldwide
The Stanford GraphBase: A Platform for Combinatorial Computing represents the first fruits of Donald E. Knuth's preparation for Volume 4 of The Art of Computer Programming. The book's first goal is to demonstrate, through about 30 examples, the art of literate programming. Each example is a programmatic essay, a short story that can be read and enjoyed by human beings as readily as it can be read and interpreted by machines. In these essays/programs, Knuth makes new contributions to the exposition of several important algorithms and data structures, so the programs are of special interest for their content as well as for their style. The book's second goal is to provide a useful means for comparing combinatorial algorithms and for evaluating methods of combinatorial computing. To this end, Knuth's programs offer standard freely available sets of data - the Stanford GraphBase - that may be used as benchmarks to test competing methods. The data sets are both interesting in themselves and applicable to a wide variety of problem domains. With objective tests here made possible, Knuth hopes to bridge the gap between theoretical computer scientists and programmers' who have real problems to solve. As with all of Knuth's writings, this book is appreciated not only for the author's unmatched insight, but also for the fun and the challenge of his work, in which he invites us to participate. He illustrates many of the most significant and most beautiful combinatorial algorithms that are presently known and provides demonstration programs that can lead to hours of amusement. In showing how the Stanford GraphBase can generate an almost exhaustible supply of challenging problems, some of which may lead to the discovery of new and improved algorithms, Knuth proposes friendly competitions. His own initial entries into such competitions are included in the book, and readers are challenged to do better

Things a computer scientist rarely talks about by Donald Ervin Knuth( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 397 libraries worldwide
In the fall of 1999, computer scientist Donald E. Knuth was invited to give six public lectures at MIT on the general subject of relations between faith and science. The lectures were broadcast live on the Internet and watched regularly by tens of thousands of people around the world, and they have remained popular many months after the event. This book contains transcripts of those lectures, edited and annotated by the author. After an introductory first lecture, the second one focusses on the interaction of randomization and religion, since randomization has become a key area of scientific interest during the past few decades. The third lecture considers questions of language translation, with many examples drawn from the author's experiments in which random verses of the Bible were analyzed in depth. The fourth lecture deals with art and aesthetics; it illustrates several ways in which beautiful presentations can greatly deepen our perception of difficult concepts. The fifth lecture discusses what the author learned from the "3:16 project," a personal exploration of Biblical literature which he regards as a turning point in his own life. The sixth and final lecture, "God and Computer Science," is largely independent of the other five. It deals with several new perspectives by which concepts of computer science help to shed light on many ancient and difficult questions previously addressed by scientists in other fields. A significant part of each lecture is devoted to spontaneous questions from the audience and the speaker's impromptu responses, transcribed from videotapes of the original sessions. The book concludes with a transcript of a panel discussion in which Knuth joins several other prominent computer specialists to discuss "Creativity, Spirituality, and Computer Science." The other panelists are Guy L. Steele Jr. of Sun Microsystems, Manuela Veloso of Carnegie Mellon University, and Mitch Kapor of Lotus Development Corporation, together with moderator Harry Lewis (Dean of Harvard College). The book includes over 100 illustrations and photographs. The author has contributed additional notes and a comprehensive index. - Publisher
Algorithms in modern mathematics and computer science : proceedings, Urgench, Uzbek SSR, September 16-22, 1979 by A. P Ershov( Book )
21 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in 4 languages and held by 356 libraries worldwide
The life and work of the ninth century scientist al-Khwarizmi, 'the father of algebra and algorithms, ' is surveyed briefly. Then a random sampling technique is used in an attempt to better understand the kinds of thinking that good mathematicians and computer scientists do and to analyze whether such thinking is significantly 'algorithmic' in nature.

Axioms and hulls by Donald Ervin Knuth( Book )
15 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 333 libraries worldwide
"One way to advance the science of computational geometry is to make a comprehensive study of fundamental operations that are used in many different algorithms. This monograph attempts such an investigation in the case of two basic predicates: the counterclockwise relation pqr, which states that the circle through points (p, q, r) is traversed counterclockwise when we encounter the points in cyclic order p, q, r, p, ... ; and the incircle relation pqrs, which states that s lies inside that circle if pqr is true, or outside that circle if pqr is false. The author, Donald Knuth, is one of the greatest computer scientists of our time. A few years ago, he and some of his students were looking at amap that pinpointed the locations of about 100 cities. They asked, "Which ofthese cities are neighbors of each other?" They knew intuitively that some pairs of cities were neighbors and some were not; they wanted to find a formal mathematical characterization that would match their intuition. This monograph is the result."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE
