A Serious Practitioner of Computer Science. I allocated a special place on my shelf for these books before they arrived, as one might make room out in the barn for a shiny new mainframe.
The weight of their authority was so great that they became immovable. Sorry not sorry. So much respect. I would disconnect from the Internet for a few months and move alone to a cabin on a Wyoming mountaintop with a ream of paper, a couple boxes of pencils, TAOCP, a few supplementary math books, and a 90 day supply of Adderall. I would take long hikes in the mountains, thinking deeply about the fundamental algorithms. No laptop, no wifi, no electricity — these are all distractions.
So, yesterday as I was reviewing the preface again, I felt I should pause and reflect on my journey so far.
This is the machine Knuth cut his teeth on. To be excited about computers in the s was to be excited about applied math. The early IBM had basic math operations and control structures, and it was built around decimal math, not binary. There was no display and no command line.
I have pored over them in cars, restaurants, at work, at home If you think you're a really good programmer You should definitely send me a resume if you can read the whole thing. It's always a pleasure when a problem is hard enough that you have to get the Knuths off the shelf.
I find that merely opening one has a very useful terrorizing effect on computers. This first volume in the series begins with basic programming concepts and techniques, then focuses more particularly on information structures—the representation of information inside a computer, the structural relationships between data elements and how to deal with them efficiently.
Elementary applications are given to simulation, numerical methods, symbolic computing, software and system design.
Dozens of simple and important algorithms and techniques have been added to those of the previous edition. The section on mathematical preliminaries has been extensively revised to match present trends in research. Stay ahead with the world's most comprehensive technology and business learning platform.

New material for Volume 4 will first appear in beta-test form as fascicles of approximately pages each, issued approximately twice per year.
These fascicles will represent my best attempt to write a comprehensive account; but computer science has grown to the point where I cannot hope to be an authority on all the material covered in these books.
Therefore I'll need feedback from readers in order to prepare the official volumes later. For example, the following fascicles appeared before the hardcover edition of Volume 4A was complete. Translations of those fascicles: Macedonian translation of Volume 4 Fascicle 0 Skopje: Romanian translation of Volume 4 Fascicle 2, by Cora Radulian: Russian translation of Volume 4 Fascicle 2, by Yu.

Some "pre-fascicles" are also available for alpha-testing: I've put them online primarily so that experts in the field can check the contents before I inflict them on a wider audience. But if you want to help debug them, please go right ahead.
As I continue to write Volumes 4 and 5, I'll need to refer to topics that belong logically in Volumes but weren't invented yet when I wrote those books. Instead of putting such material artificially into Volumes 4 or 5, I'll put it into fascicle form. The first such fascicle is in fact ready now see above: Download the 16 Feb version of Volume 1 Fascicle 1 KB of compressed PostScript this old version is however no longer being maintained; see the errata below.
After Volume 5 has been completed, I will revise Volumes again to bring them up to date. In particular, the new material for those volumes that has been issued in beta-test fascicles will be incorporated at that time. And after Volumes are done, God willing, I plan to publish Volume 6 the theory of context-free languages and Volume 7 Compiler techniques , but only if the things I want to say about those topics are still relevant and still haven't been said.
Volumes represent the central core of computer programming for sequential machines; the subjects of Volumes 6 and 7 are important but more specialized.
Meanwhile if you want to try out the existing programs for the original 60s-era machine, you might be able to find suitable software at the following sites:. This booklet is jam-packed with instructive details and opportunities for self-instruction.
The main changes between the second and third editions of Volume 1 are listed in the Errata for Volume 1 2nd ed. But thousands of additional refinements appear in the 3rd edition; you really should ask someone to get it for you next Christmas.
The main changes to the third edition of Volume 1, made before the appearance of Volume 4A, are listed in the Early errata for Volume 1 3rd ed. There's also a much shorter list of changes since the 27th printing, last updated 11 July You can't run that TeX file through TeX; it imports all kinds of other files that are private. But if you have no way to look at compressed PostScript files, you might try reading the TeX code as a last resort; at least you'll be able to figure out the page numbers on which corrections have been made.
An unknown number of badly printed copies of Volume 1 Fascicle 1 were printed by mistake. Among other defects, the copyright page has incredibly poor resolution, and the MMIX summary chart has been omitted from the inside back cover. If you have downloadd one of these monstrosities, the publishers assure me that they will replace your copy with a good one.
Errata et Addenda for Volume 2 The main changes between the second and third editions of Volume 2 are listed in the Errata for Volume 2 2nd ed.
