Sixth in a series of collected works, Selected Papers on Discrete Mathematics is devoted to Knuth's purely mathematical work. Over forty of Knuth's classic papers spanning the entire range of discrete mathematics are collected in this volume, all brought up to date with extensive revisions and the addition of new material.

The papers emphasize general techniques of problem solving and explore the creation of mathematical patterns. Knuth's prize-winning expositions of mathematical notation, his accounts of episodes in the history of mathematics, and his fundamental papers on tableaux and random graphs are all found here, along with fifty new illustrations. Scholars and students of mathematics will find this an indispensable collection.

Book Description Centre for the Study of Language & Information, United States, 2001. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Donald Knuth's influence in computer science ranges from the invention of literate programming to the development of the TeX programming language. One of the foremost figures in the field of mathematical sciences, his papers are widely referenced and stand as milestones of development over a wide range of topics. This volume assembles more than three dozen of Professor Knuth's pioneering contributions to discrete mathematics. It includes a variety of topics in combinatorial mathematics (finite geometries, graph theory, enumeration, partitions, tableaux, matroids, codes); discrete algebra (finite fields, groupoids, closure operators, inequalities, convolutions, Pfaffians); and concrete mathematics (recurrence relations, special numbers and notations, identities, discrete probability). Of particular interest are two fundamental papers in which the evolution of random graphs is studied by means of generating functions. Seller Inventory # BTE9781575862484
