The Art of Computer Programming, Volumes 1-4A Boxed Set, 3/e ISBN: 0321751043 Art of Computer Programming, Volume 1, Fascicle 1, The: MMIX -- A RISC Computer for the New Millennium This multivolume work on the analysis of algorithms has long been recognized as the definitive description of classical computer science. The three complete volumes published to date already comprise a unique and invaluable resource in programming theory and practice. Countless readers have spoken about the profound personal influence of Knuth's writings. Scientists have marveled at the beauty and elegance of his analysis, while practicing programmers have successfully applied his cookbook solutions to their day-to-day problems. All have admired Knuth for the breadth, clarity, accuracy, and good humor found in his books. To begin the fourth and later volumes of the set, and to update parts of the existing three, Knuth has created a series of small books called fascicles, which will be published t regular intervals. Each fascicle will encompass a section or more of wholly new or evised material. Ultimately, the content of these fascicles will be rolled up into the comprehensive, final versions of each volume, and the enormous undertaking that began in 1962 will be complete. Volume 1, Fascicle 1 This first fascicle updates The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 1, Third Edition: Fundamental Algorithms, and ultimately will become part of the fourth edition of that book. Specifically, it provides a programmer's introduction to the long-awaited MMIX, a RISC-based computer that replaces the original MIX, and describes the MMIX assembly language. The fascicle also presents new material on subroutines, coroutines, and interpretive routines. Ebook (PDF version) produced by Mathematical Sciences Publishers (MSP), http: //msp.org

    Donald Knuth wrote (and still is writing) his magnum opus, coding all the algorithms in assembly code, since he knew that programming languages would come and go, and he would have to rewrite his books. He was right about that. However, his original hypothetical processor dated over 40 years, and he now uses a 'modern' hypothetical processor, which sort of countered the reason of writing out his algorithms in assembly language in the first place.

Supposedly writing out the algorithms in a modern programming language (whether modern means 1967 or 2017 or 2067) is left as an exercise for the reader.

    After having read through Volume 1 (3rd. ed.) I wanted to update my understanding on general assembly languages, which this fascicle does pretty well. The MMIX computer is quite easy to wrap one's head around, unlike the original MIX computer, which dealt with strange concepts from the eyes of a 21st century computer science student. Even though it is short, it is by no means a light read, since the MIXAL code within requires careful study, and there's quite a lot of MIXAL within. After having read through Volume 1 (3rd. ed.)
