Comprehensive mathematics for computer scientists 1
The first three volumes of what was then expected to be a seven-volume set were published in , , and The first published installment of Volume 4 appeared in paperback as Fascicle 2 in The hardback Volume 4A, combining Volume 4, Fascicles 0—4, was published in The estimated release date for Fascicle 5 has slipped several times, due to last-minute inclusion of additional material.
Fascicles 5 and 6 are expected to comprise the first two-thirds of Volume 4B. Knuth has not announced any estimated date for release of Volume 4B, although his method used for Volume 4A is to release the hardback volume some time after release of the paperback fascicles that comprise it.
Near-term publisher estimates put the release date at May or June of , which proved to be incorrect.
After winning a Westinghouse Talent Search scholarship, Knuth enrolled at the Case Institute of Technology now Case Western Reserve University , where his performance was so outstanding that the faculty voted to award him a master of science upon his completion of the baccalaureate degree. During his summer vacations, Knuth was hired by the Burroughs Corporation to write compilers , earning more in his summer months than full professors did for an entire year.
Knuth started to write a book about compiler design in , and soon realized that the scope of the book needed to be much larger.
In June , Knuth finished the first draft of what was originally planned to be a single volume of twelve chapters. This meant the book would be approximately pages in length.

The publisher was nervous about accepting such a project from a graduate student. At this point, Knuth received support from Richard S. Varga, who was the scientific adviser to the publisher. With Varga's enthusiastic endorsement, the publisher accepted Knuth's expanded plans. In its expanded version, the book would be published in seven volumes, each with just one or two chapters.
All The Math Books You’ll Ever Need
In , Knuth prepared a second edition of Volume 2, requiring it to be typeset again, but the style of type used in the first edition called hot type was no longer available. In , he decided to spend some time creating something more suitable. Eight years later, he returned with T E X , which is currently used for all volumes. Another characteristic of the volumes is the variation in the difficulty of the exercises.
The level of difficulty ranges from "warm-up" exercises to unsolved research problems. This series of books is affectionately dedicated to the Type computer once installed at Case Institute of Technology , with whom I have spent many pleasant evenings.
Knuth considers the use of assembly language necessary for the speed and memory usage of algorithms to be judged. Knuth was awarded the Turing Award "for his major contributions to the analysis of algorithms […], and in particular for his contributions to the 'art of computer programming' through his well-known books in a continuous series by this title.
