Handbook of Theoretical Computer Science
Jan van Leeuwen
Elsevier, 1990 - Computers - 2269 pages
"Of all the books I have covered in the Forum to date, this set is the most unique and possibly the most useful to the SIGACT community, in support both of teaching and research.... The books can be used by anyone wanting simply to gain an understanding of one of these areas, or by someone desiring to be in research in a topic, or by instructors wishing to find timely information on a subject they are teaching outside their major areas of expertise."
-- Rocky Ross, "SIGACT News"
"This is a reference which has a place in every computer science library."
The two volumes contain thirty-seven chapters, with extensive chapter references and individual tables of contents for each chapter. There are 5,387 entry subject indexes that include notational symbols, and a list of contributors and affiliations in each volume.
