>>
>>51468089
no.
>>
>>51468096
It looks so interesting though
>>
>>51468149
yes, but it's full of math.
>>
>>51468164
Then that's not art.
>>
>>51468089

From what I understand, TAOCP is grad-level CS math stuff, so no.
>>
>>51468164
you can't avoid the math forever,
better learn now when you don't need it
>>
>>51468170
shame on you

bet you "program" html and webshit
>>
Yes. The maths are very simple and there's a preliminaries chapter.
>>
>>51468089
There is not much "math" math in it to be honestly.
>>
Why is Knuth waiting so long to release all of it ffs, he's been writing this shit for 40 years
>>
>>51468633
To make it as good as he can, it would be his life legacy.
>>
>>51468654
but he will obviously die before finishing it. There's no way he will make vol 6 and 7
>>
>>51468170
The art of turning all that math into something 'real' is the art of it anon.
>>
>>51468633
He's actually pulled out of teaching and other engagements now in the hopes of completing it.

This. He looks like a million years old these days. Maybe he's already written everything and we'll get a posthumous release.
>>
>>51468739
he's 77. We can't expect him to be alive for much long.
>>
>>51468089
Probably there is not a single person on /g/ that read all volumes
