This still timely collection of papers by Donald Knuth, "the father of computer science," surveys the field of computer science and the nature of algorithms. Topics covered here include the relationship between computer science and mathematics, the connections between theory and practice, and the known limitations on what can be computed in a reasonable amount of time. Additionally, Knuth discusses the history of computer science from ancient Babylon through today.

Particularly clear and accessible, these essays were written for a general audience rather than specialists in computer science. They are thus a valuable resource for not only computer scientists but for anyone interested in the history of this fascinating field.

Review:

Knuth is, of course, one of the foremost computer scientists and has been instrumental in the invention of methods for translating and defining programming languages and mathematical analyses of algorithms. It is fair to say that computing as we know it today would not be possible without Knuth's contributions. This is a collection of his less technical publications dealing with the relationship of computer science and mathematics, CS education, and the history of computational techniques from Babylonia to the present including an analysis of John von Neumann's first program. Highly recommended to all serious computer scientists.

Book Description:

Donald Knuth's influence in computer science ranges from the invention of literate programming to the development of the TeX programming language. This anthology of essays includes articles on the history of computing, algorithms, numerical techniques, computational models, typesetting, and more.
