Beauty Is Our Business: A Birthday Salute to Edsger W. by W.H.J. Feijen, A.J.M. van Gasteren, David Gries, J. Misra

By W.H.J. Feijen, A.J.M. van Gasteren, David Gries, J. Misra

More than anything, this booklet is a tribute to Edsger W. Dijkstra, at the social gathering of his 60th birthday, via quite a few of these lucky adequate to be encouraged through him and his paintings and to be known as his buddy or relation, his grasp, colleague, or scholar. This e-book comprises fifty-four technical contributions in numerous parts of undertaking, even if lots of them take care of a space of specific trouble to Dijkstra: programming. every one contribution is comparatively brief and will be digested in a single sitting. jointly, they shape a pleasant move component of the self-discipline of programming first and foremost of the nineties. whereas many be aware of of Dijkstra's technical contributions, they might not pay attention to his final objective, the mastery of complexity in arithmetic and computing technological know-how. He has forcefully argued that good looks and style are necessary to this mastery. The identify of this publication, selected to mirror his final aim, comes from a sentence in an editorial of his on a few appealing arguments utilizing mathematical induction: "... once we recognize the conflict opposed to chaos, mess, and unmastered complexity as one among computing sci- ence's significant callings, we needs to admit that 'Beauty Is Our Business'."
