Kurzbeschreibung

Dezember 2000
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.

Buchrückseite

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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Großartig, wie erwartet. 26. Dezember 2013
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Donald Knuth ist schon jemand Besonderes, das muss man ihm lassen.

TeX ist atemberaubend gut, es hat praktisch keine Bugs. Und wenn man diese Bücher gelesen hat, wird einem auch klar, warum:
Knuth ist ein Genie, der jede einzelne Codezeile seiner Programme exakt geplant und durchberechnet hat. Und dementsprechend sind auch seine Resultate perfekt, in jeder Hinsicht.

Jeder, der sich für TeX(tsatz[systeme]) interessiert, sollte auf jeden Fall diese Reihe gelesen haben!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The pristine and the ultimate in TeX! 31. Mai 2010
Von I. R. RAO - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Donald E Knuth, better known as the "Grand Old Man of TeX", needs no introduction in the world of everyone who has at one time or the other attempted computer typesetting of a scientific/engineering document. Even so, not many of them are aware of the great Teacher/Author which he also is.
I can asseverate that anybody who attempts even a casual reading of the "TeXBook" (The first volume in the boxed set of 5 books) will simply be enchanted by the lucid and clear style of writing (with a good dose of humor) and fall inevitably in love with TeX.
I thank Addison-Wesley for making these great works of a great man available in a beautifully typeset (needless to say, in TeX!)boxed set of 5 books, which has helped me in supplementing my 'Knuth Collection'. I consider this boxed set of Knuth books as one of my prized possession, of which I am justifiably proud.
I also thank AmazonOnline for facilitating the purchase.
Start TeXking and Enjoy typesetting like you never did!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Useful in ways you wouldn't imagine 12. Dezember 2000
Von D. A. Hosek - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
MF: The Program is a surprisingly readable batch of source code (at least partially co-written by John Hobby, by the way). Yes, you can reproduce (almost) the book from the source code (and get a printout that includes post-publication bugs fixes and enhancements), but it's not quite as convenient and lacks the page-by-page mini-indices. Whether the convenience is worth [the money] is up to you.
Where the book is especially helpful is for someone who's looking to see graphical algorithims spelled out by a master programmer in a literate and enteratining way. Me, I've got the full 5 volume set of TeX/MF books, but then, once upon a time, this was how I made my living.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ABCDE 29. Mai 2008
Von R. S. Wenocur - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
How exciting it was to take the box set out of the shipping box. How wonderful to have all these volumes as a lovely box set. Here is a case in which thinking inside the box is beneficial. Dr. Knuth's writing and typesetting is, as always, clear and beautiful, and his sense of humor adds extra dimensions to the important information. How rare that such useful books are also a joy to read, as are these.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Neither practically nor theoretically interesting 15. September 2011
Von david - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
These books are well known and famous but I didn't find them handy. They don't cover enough theory of layout and rendering to be of theoretical interest to someone trying to understand the field. Nor do they provide enough practical instruction to actually *use* latex or metafont. Books 'B' and 'D' are basically large programming examples which is kinda nice: they do demonstrate how you can structure exceedingly complex software.
