## The Art of Computer Programming

## Concrete Mathematics: A Foundation for Computer Science (2nd Edition)

“If you think you’re a really good programmer… read [Knuth’s] Art of Computer Programming… You should definitely send me a resume if you can read the whole thing.”

Bill Gates

This book introduces the mathematics that supports advanced computer programming and the analysis of algorithms. The primary aim of its well-known authors is to provide a solid and relevant base of mathematical skills – the skills needed to solve complex problems, to evaluate horrendous sums, and to discover subtle patterns in data. It is an indispensable text and reference not only for computer scientists – the authors themselves rely heavily on it! – but for serious users of mathematics in virtually every discipline.
