The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 4, Fascicle 5 (Addison-Wesley Professional)
Wednesday, 18 December 2019

Donald Knuth's multi-volume work on the analysis of algorithms, often abbreviated to TAoCP, has long been recognized as the definitive description of classical computer science. To continue the fourth and later volumes of the set, and to update parts of the existing volumes, Knuth created a series of small books called fascicles, which are published at regular intervals. Each fascicle encompasses a section or more of wholly new or revised material. This one forms the first third of what will eventually become hardcover Volume 4B. Brimming with lively examples, it begins with a 26-page tutorial on the major advances in probabilistic methods that have been made during the past 50 years, then it introduces the fundamental principles of efficient backtrack programming, a family of techniques that have been a mainstay of combinatorial computing since the beginning.

We recently recommended the boxed set of TAoCP as a suitable gift for the professional programmer, see The Art Of Computer Programming Progresses - A Great Present. However for anyone who already owns this, this paperback  make a very timely addition.
