The bible of all fundamental algorithms and the work that taught many of today's software developers most of what they know about computer programming.

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.

The MMIX Supplement

The human was the operating system: Say you wanted to write a program to generate fibonacci numbers. So, in those early years you had to write out the machine-level operation codes for what you wanted to do, and then hand-assemble your program and punch out a deck of cards with your program stamped into them using a key punch machine.

There were a couple ways to optimize your program.

You could design a faster algorithm or deploy data structures that are better suited to the problem. You could also optimize how your program loads and runs — working with the grain of the machinery. Magnetic drum memory, a forerunner to the modern hard drive, was the primary memory for the , and it was very slow. So your goal as a programmer was to minimize the rotational latency of the 12, RPM drum machine such that all of your code and data would be easily within reach of the CPU at the right moment during execution.

Welcome to freeCodeCamp News.

You wanted perfect synchronization between the CPU cycles of the mainframe and these drum memory rotations. Computer programming was forged here, at the rough intersection of mathematics and mechanical engineering.

It could be completely understood by one very smart person. That is no longer true.

Knuth’s TAOCP – hardcover and ebook

Knuth and the programmers of that era had to be smarter than the IBM They understood every vacuum tube and control switch. The documents are watermarked , but otherwise not encrypted. Wow, this is what I call service.

Big big thanks! Hundreds, if not thousands of code snippets, graphics, formulas, mixed with wild cross referencing, links, exercises, solutions.

Still, the PDF is also made with proper hyper-link support, which really helps navigating these highly non-linear books. I tested the ePub version on my Kobo Glo , which is not one of the newest models.

The ebook waits about 66Mb, which is a lot for an ePub not for manga epub, though. This also means that loading times on the device are not spectacular.

But once loaded, paging through the book is fine. Clicking on a link is again a bit a patience game. I guess newer devices with higher computing power will have an easier game with that. Concerning the conversion of all the non-text material, the publishers decided to use graphics for everything which is not real plain text.In this blog post I will give a short intro to TAOCP — although everyone should know that, and compare the book and the ebook version.

Art of Computer Programming, The: Volume 1: Fundamental Algorithms

I suppose Knuth's book would be equally, or more, "heavy" and the site would choke on the pdf versions. In it [or them] Knuth describes algorithms.

Can they at least include a dust cover so I can subtly project my latent leetness? Some of them emphasize proper program design, debugging and problem solving. Linux and Unix. View table of contents.
