I would also recommend searching YouTube for videos by Sean Parent. Programming Conversations is another great lecture series by Alexander Stepanov: It’s the first stepannov only rigorous foundation of software engineering that I’ve seen.

It’s like if Bret Victor was a book, a tour de force of polymathical insanity. The epements is in full color and it has some of the nicest looking and steoanov instructive graphics I’ve ever seen even for things that I understand, such as Central Limit Theorem.

And then we wonder why software is notorious for being delivered late and full of bugs, while other engineers routinely deliver finished bridges, automobiles, electrical appliances, etc. Never use new and delete or malloc and free. This is not an easy book. Sorry for the repo’s name!

This one in particular is very enlightening: An Interface Layer for Artificial Intelligence https: His books are fantastic too. I don’t reject destructive laexander that are compatible with persistence e.

Unfortunately basically all of the modern algorithms literature seems to avoid even the tiniest hint of abstraction; it makes the subject so much harder to hold in your head! It makes sense the the best graphics would be in the book written by the guy who wrote a book on how to do visualizations mathematically.


Try to pick a style that you think as many people as alexajder will understand. Has anyone here tried to explore the contents of this book in either Swift or Rust? As the codebases grow, and these functionalities diverge even further, pulling the reigns in on the chaos becomes gradually impossible.

In particular the ‘generic programming’ technique illustrated by Alexander Stepanov in these lectures Four Algorithmic Journeys [1] and book [2] caught my attention. Writing exception-safe code is nearly impossible in C.

Ordered Algebraic Structures 6. Not too bad for a 4, year old multiplication algorithm. But remember that this is not an easy book, I’ve met very smart people who told me they read only a part of this and are still programmkng their heads alesander that.

Get dozens of book recommendations delivered straight to your inbox every Thursday. It’s the first and only rigorous foundation of software engineering that I’ve seen. Practical Foundations for Programming Languages https: In he received the Dr. Get unlimited access to videos, live online training, learning paths, books, tutorials, and more.

In other words, I realized that a parallel reduction algorithm is associated with a semigroup structure type. I just picked this up after having finished ‘From Mathematics to Generic Programming’ which is a ride in the park compared to what you’re reading now. The author is Alexander Stephanov the father of generic programming.

What is the origin of STL? He has been programming since in the areas of operating systems, programming environments, transaction processing systems, and enterprise and consumer applications. Programming languages are for humans to read. Alexaander book presents a number of algorithms and requirements for types on which they are defined.


Elements of Programming – Alexander A. Stepanov, Paul McJones – Google Books

Also I’m starting to think that generic programming might actually be the most powerful paradigm out there this is just a hunch. The only requirements for a port to another language are parametric polymorphism and algebraic data types. Implement Robust, Fault-Tolerant Systems https: Elements of Programming Alexander A. To benefit fully, you will need to work through it from beginning to end, reading the code, proving the lemmas, and doing the exercises.

A First Course in Network Theory https: I’m finally taking a stab at Elements of Programming https: Using abstract algorithms leads to efficient, reliable, secure, and economical software. A second example is the euclidean algorithm, which he extends first to polynomials following Stevin, then to Gaussian integers, then to euclidean domains. Note that some of these are rehashes of my earlier comments.

I’d upvote you more if I could. Its major premise is that practical programming, like other areas of science and engineering,must be based on a solid mathematical foundation.
