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:
