Riassunto: This Millennium Boxed Set -- five elegantly printed books that describe their own method of creation -- celebrates Donald E. Knuth's monumental coupling of programming and typography in the TeX and METAFONT systems that are used worldwide by scientists, mathematicians, and others to produce high-quality, aesthetically pleasing text. Originally published in 1986, each volume has changed so much in subsequent printings that nearly every page has been touched. The improvements reflect new developments in digital printing technology; as well as corrections submitted by thousands of volunteers -- making these volumes the most accurate versions yet published. For readers who own earlier printings of Knuth's books, or have holes in their collections, the Millennium Boxed Set makes updating easy. For those who own none of the books, the boxed set is a convenient way to get them all at once.
Dal retro di copertina:
Donald E. Knuth's five volumes on Computers & Typesetting comprise the definitive user guides and thoroughly documented program code for the TeX and METAFONT systems. This open-source software is widely used around the world by scientists, mathematicians, and others to produce high-quality, aesthetically pleasing text, especially where technical content is included.
TeX and METAFONT have now reached a state of maturity that few pieces of software have ever been able to achieve. The start of the Millennium is a perfect time to offer users and libraries the opportunity to fill their reference shelves with an up-to-date and comprehensive collection of Knuth's work, as well as to encourage a broad audience of software developers to learn from the complete, robust, and portable systems built by a master programmer.
This Millennium Boxed Set -- five elegantly printed books that describe their own method of creation -- celebrates Knuth's monumental coupling of programming and typography. Originally published in 1986, each volume has changed so much in subsequent printings that nearly every page has been touched in some way. Improvements to the books have followed developments in digital printing technology; they also reflect corrections submitted over the years by thousands of volunteers. The volumes in this box are the latest and most accurate versions yet published.
If you have earlier printings of Knuth's books, or holes in your collection, the Millennium Boxed Set makes updating easy. If you have none of the books, you now can conveniently get them all at once. Whether your work requires that you generate superbly formatted text, or that you hone the skills needed for writing your own successful programs, you will find these volumes to be an immediately valuable resource, as well as a treasure for future generations.
