About this product
- DescriptionKnuth's starting point is his 3:16 project, an application of mathematical random sampling to the books of the Bible. The first lectures tell the story of the project's conception and execution, exploring the complex dimensions of language translation, aesthetics, and theological history. Knuth also reveals the many insights that he has gained along the way from such interdisciplinary work. The theological musings culminate in a final lecture which tackles infinity, free will, and the other big questions that lie at the juncture of theology and computation. Each lecture ends with a question and answer exchange.
- Author BiographyDonald E. Knuth is a Professor Emeritus of The Art of Computer Programming at Stanford University and author of The Art of Computer Programming. These lectures were originally presented at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and broadcast live on the Internet.
