  Combinatorics for computer science
Williamson S.,  Computer Science Press, Inc., New York, NY, 1985.Type: Book (9780881750201)

The author has wisely, in your reviewer’s opinion, chosen to view combinatorics as a tool to create data structures which lead naturally to algorithms, some of which may be near optimal, rather than creating a collection of supposedly optima...

  An improved solution to the traveling salesman problem with thousands of nodes
Litke J.  Communications of the ACM 27(12): 1227-1236, 1984. Type: Article

This well-written paper explains the difficulties encountered in reducing the table motion (i.e., path) in positioning circuit boards for drilling the more than 3,000 (sometimes 17,000) holes in a circuit board. The total motion path is, of course...

  Differentiation in PASCAL-SC: type GRADIENT
Rall L.  ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software 10(2): 161-184, 1984. Type: Article

The well-documented inaccuracies that arise when numerical differentiation is used in scientific and engineering computations of even moderate size suggest that actual derivatives should be used instead. Human error frequently rears its head in t...
