Concrete Mathematics is a blending of CONtinuous and disCRETE mathematics. "More concretely," the authors explain, "it is the controlled manipulation of mathematical formulas, using a collection of techniques for solving problems."

    I had the great fortune to take this course at Stanford from Ron Graham, with Oren Patashnik as my TA, and we used Don Knuth's "Art Of Computer Programming: Vol. 1 - Fundamental Algorithms" as our textbook. All of the course notes and problem set solutions were written up using TEX. It didn't get any better than that! When I saw that this book had been released, I rushed to my nearest technical bookstore to buy it. It's every bit as fun and whimsical as the class was, but it is by no means any s I had the great fortune to take this course at Stanford from Ron Graham, with Oren Patashnik as my TA, and we used Don Knuth's "Art Of Computer Programming: Vol. 1 - Fundamental Algorithms" as our textbook.

When I saw that this book had been released, I rushed to my nearest technical bookstore to buy it. It's every bit as fun and whimsical as the class was, but it is by no means any sort of satire or spoof - this book is very deep, and covers a vast array of problems and methodologies. If you've ever wondered what sort of mathematics course could actually inspire someone to continue learning mathematics, check this book out! And if you're *really* lucky, try attending a course, colloquium, seminar, or conference session with any of these three gentlemen presenting - you'll be glad you did!

    Incredibly well written, utterly idiosyncratic, and remarkably useless. Somewhere between masterpiece and complete failure. I love every comma of it.

    I'm still working my way through this book -- it's supposed to be a precursor to the Art of Computer Programming, to give you the math foundation you need. The explanations are clear and the exercises are great.

    A wonderful, wonderful exploration of a mathematical system that according to its authors is a blend of "continuous and discreet mathematics". It also forms a foundation to understand Donald Knuth's epic exploration of algorithms, the seven-books series on the "Art of Computer Programming". Like with all the books by Knuth, if the reader is able to find an error which is "technically, historically, typographically, or politically incorrect", he/she will be rewarded with 2.56 US dollars, which ac A wonderful, wonderful exploration of a mathematical system that according to its authors is a blend of "continuous and discreet mathematics". It also forms a foundation to understand Donald Knuth's epic exploration of algorithms, the seven-books series on the "Art of Computer Programming". Like with all the books by Knuth, if the reader is able to find an error which is "technically, historically, typographically, or politically incorrect", he/she will be rewarded with 2.56 US dollars, which according to Knuth is "one hexadecimal dollar"! Such playful rigor is found throughout this book, which explains number theory, recursion, discrete probability et al with elan. It is also one of the few books from my Engineering days that I will cherish and keep returning to, just for the infotainment it provides.

    Really good! Well written. But really, a very good text book. If you don't want to solve the exercises (at least 40% what is called the Warm Ups and The Basics) you are better of with a book meant for popular reading. If you would like to solve the exercises, then here's to many a rainy Sunday afternoons!

    I really recommend this book. It simply teaches you how to think in a simple way without complex unproven theorems. This book is really challenging and provides the reader all the tools he will need to enjoy learning the topics presented.

    the title is somewhat misleading , you don't need to learn all these concepts in this to master algorithm analysis , the only thing i liked in this book is the "research problems" section just like in other knuth's books , and the graffiti. wont recommend this unless you are on a mission to read TAOCP

    The first three chapters were OK, but by the time I got to hypergeometric generating functions I was feeling a bit out of my depth. The last couple of chapters on probability and asymptotics were a bit easier to follow.

    Very good book. I haven't read the whole thing, but have read a number of the sections that were of particular interest to me (especially the chapter on generating functions). It's worth noting that this is a challenging book and if you haven't had some exposure to mathematics before and developed some degree of mathematical maturity you'll likely find this book too hard and trying to work through it discouraging. I first took a look at it in high school, couldn't make much progress, and put it Very good book.

I first took a look at it in high school, couldn't make much progress, and put it down. It wasn't until my junior year of college that I started to get much out of it.

    buku yang menyenangkan, terutama bwt gw yang rada alergi sama matematik. cara penyampaiannya seperti ngobrol santai tapi sambil mengajarkan pola pikir kreatif ttg problem solving dengan matematika. buku pertama yang bikin gw ketawa sambil baca buku teks.. :D learning math would never be this fun..

    Good source of condensed knowledge on topic. While the book feels quite heavy (both physically and experience-wise), I refuse to believe this material could have been presented in a more accessible way.

    Reading it as a reference. Very well written. I mean, Donald Knuth is by far the most amazing computer scientist in my mind so considering I am such a huge fanboi of his work, I HAD to read this to refresh my math. Awesome stuff.

    È un libro di testo, per quanto possa esserlo un libro in cui DEK è uno degli autori. Però il modo in cui ti insegna a trovare il risultato in somma chiusa delle sommatorie è favoloso... anche se dopo i primi capitoli bisogna togliersi dalla testa di riuscire a leggerlo e capirlo al volo.

    Of course I barely scraped the surface of all that this book contains. I did find an error and wrote to the authors and received a reply from Knuth and Ron Graham, but didn't get a cheque for $2.56 as they already knew about it.

    This great classical book gives very strong mathematical foundation for computer programming and algorithms, showing how to solve complex problems in a mathematical way

    One of the best CS math books available. 20 years later it is still current. A must for any CS student.

    The best overall set of discrete exercises I've ever seen, well worth the price of admission alone.
