    ---- preread ---- Amazon 2008-07-05. I've three reasons for paying good money for this preprint (I ordered Facsimile 0 of Volume 4 along with this Facsimile 3; I have not yet been moved to acquire Facsimiles 1, 2 or 4): a) Knuth's likely going to die before volume 4's finished, as he's made it clear volume 5 is considered much more integral to his great plan than volumes 6 and 7 (see the TAOCP page). Volume 5 represents the border regions of Knuth's great dominance gaps (this is the man, recall, w ---- preread ---- Amazon 2008-07-05. I've three reasons for paying good money for this preprint (I ordered Facsimile 0 of Volume 4 along with this Facsimile 3; I have not yet been moved to acquire Facsimiles 1, 2 or 4): a) Knuth's likely going to die before volume 4's finished, as he's made it clear volume 5 is considered much more integral to his great plan than volumes 6 and 7 (see the TAOCP page). Volume 5 represents the border regions of Knuth's great dominance gaps (this is the man, recall, who put the K in KMP), although the Knuth-Bendix algorithm might have something to say about that. Volume 5 won't be near completion until 2015, unless he cribs most of it from Jewels in Stringology. b) I have a number of tough combinatorial automata I'm frankly unable to analyze with my current techniques. Here's hoping The Greatest of All Time has a few more tricks to share with us. c) The error rate's likely to be highest in these early prints, and I'd like to win a Knuth check for the walls of the Dankcave. ---- postread ---- Not as impressive, on first (very quick) read, as V4F0 or any of the material in V1 or V2...hrmm :/. I'm hoping I missed something by virtue of reading the V4F's out of order; I intend to remedy the F1, F2 gap shortly. From what I've seen in F3, though, I'm questioning the broad applicability of the topics of V4 (given the three-subvolume level of detail they've been allocated)...however, I did read the majority of this F3 immediately following nitrous-intensive dental work ("Dr., I should let you know: I've had fairly extensive recreational nitrous experience. As in, think 'fairly extensive', and now square that, and perturb it to first order. Tank me up, bitch, and get me high; it's time we got the filth out!."), and thus might not have been in my trimmest intellectual form. Furthermore, like Caesar's Gallia [0] my recent coding efforts have been divided trichotomously: a) edge-triggered, arbitrarily-parallelizeable I/O closed over all UNIX async mechanisms (signals, timers, IPC, memory notification, the whole bag) -- dragging Erlang, essentially, kicking and screaming into the brackish backwaters of mainstream UNIX development via molesting its elegant I/O model into libev-like callback-driven event loops, b) modifications of the glushkov and thompson automata constructions for bioinformatic applications (likely major focus if i go Bioinformatics for PhD). see Jewels of Stringology, Flexible Pattern Matching in Strings, Biological Sequence Analysis, the BLAST paper, etc c) similar automata-based applications to compiler backends (see the RABLET research project) and all kinds of network security models / implementations (likely major focus if i go CS for PhD), see...umm, dankamongwikis if you're interested leaving me perhaps less receptive, at least in the short term, to drastically different techniques from those to which I'm accustomed. I'll definitely be rereading this prior to doing the problem sets, and following F1+F2. [0] I apologize for such a pointless joyride back to 8th grade Latin. Omnia Gallia est divisa in tres partes, hurrah!

    Impressive quality: from Knuth of course!
