Sortowanie i Wyszukiwanie Warsaw: Russian translation. The Art of Computer Programming (TAOCP) is a comprehensive monograph written by computer scientist Donald Knuth that covers many kinds of programming algorithms and their analysis. Knuth began the project, originally conceived as a single book with twelve .. Seminumerical Algorithms by Donald E. Knuth" (PDF).
CLB: I realize your current emphasis is on "literate programming", but were you ever whatsoever attracted to APL as a math-oriented language? Knuth: That's another story. APL is for people who have problems to solve and don't care too much about efficiency; they want a nice elegant way to state the solution to their problem, but the solution that they come up with is not necessarily anything that a computer has an easy job doing.
It's a problem specification language, but not a system programming language But I want to say more about IMP.
It was not a great language or compiler. The arrays would be named in a way that you could easily see in the debugger, and you could know where the storage was being allocated, you knew what was going on, and you could actually get your program running reliably, because IMP blended with the operating system.

You couldn't do that with any of the other languages. You might be writing with a better language, but you would get your work done a couple of weeks later, instead of getting answers. I used IMP. Knuth: It was at a research lab in Princeton. A year before I came to Stanford, I worked there on a classified cryptanalysis research project. Knuth: The GraphBase book is for two kinds of people.
It has a research purpose; the people who are working on the study of new algorithms for combinatorial problems need a standard set of test data on which to compete with each other, and for benchmarks. There was a need for some standard benchmarks, and everything should be well arranged so that it is easy to use in thousands of ways. I now have a collection of thousands of standard data sets; anyone in Poland can have exactly the same data as anyone in California or China.
It's very portable, and can be downloaded from the Internet. They're short programs that illustrate the programming style that I prefer. The examples are like little essays, little short stories of computer programs, that are perhaps fun to read.
CLB: What is your current hardware and software environment? This is a new language by John Hobby that is going to be released soon, I think. I love it. I also use Mathematica. The people at Maple are trying to convince me to switch over to Maple, another excellent system. Also, the Mathematica manual is exceptionally good. CLB: You like Wolfram's writing style?
Knuth: Especially the index With the first edition, when I had a new problem to solve, I would look in the index and it would almost always refer me to the right page.

There were three or four times when the word I tried wasn't there, and I penciled in where to look when I had this problem next time. CLB: Let me get your quick impressions on a few research areas, and whether you've read or done any work in them.
The first is genetic algorithms. How do you feel about the general concept, that instead of the human determining the algorithm, you somewhat let the machine have at it There's genetic breeding, there's simulated annealing, there are other strategies that people have developed. These techniques are all competing for the same kind of problems, and I want to try a lot of examples; some of them might work better on one than the other, and I want to get a feel for this.

Sortirovka i poisk Moscow: Translations of the second edition: Russian translation by V. Tertyshnyi and I. Polish translation by K. As with the previous volumes of TAOCP, this book is substantially about the analysis of the algorithms presented and not just a cookbook of algorithms.
Of the parts of Volume 4A I have touched on so far, I greatly enjoyed the discussion of Latin and Greek squares the clearest I have ever read , and I know I am going to enjoy reading more of the discussion on bitwise tricks and techniques, a topic that has always fascinated me.
Section 7. Not being a mathematician myself, I sought out a comment on the book from mathematician and puzzle master Bill Gosper 2 who has four entries in the Volume 4A index.
Comment from Bill Gosper I am delighted to report that Knuth is still his usual precise, profound, and playful self. The book is surprisingly therapeutic—it will help you lose any guilt you may feel over designing and working puzzles.
At last, my chance to hear it from the Master! Eagerly flipping forward, …, 7. To Be Continued! The Table of Contents looks positively meager. How could this require pages? Clue: The Index takes 50 pages. Volume 1: Fundamental Algorithms Open to one page at random.

The remaining subvolumes, currently in preparation, will have the following general outline:. 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.
An Interview with Donald Knuth
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. Russian translation of Volume 4 Fascicle 4, by I. Generatsiia vsekh derev'ev. 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.Russian translation of Volume 4 Fascicle 2, by Yu.
Baiakovskii and V. This approach helps even for a program that you're going to throw away after an hour.
Some of the trends are good, but almost every good idea seems to get used in a different way than it should have been. With Varga's enthusiastic endorsement, the publisher accepted Knuth's expanded plans. Eagerly flipping forward, …, 7.
