This e-book includes fifty-four technical contributions in several parts of recreation, even though a lot of them take care of a space of specific problem to Dijkstra: programming. every one contribution is comparatively brief and will be digested in a single sitting. jointly, they shape a pleasant go component to the self-discipline of programming before everything of the nineties. whereas many recognize of Dijkstra's technical contributions, they won't pay attention to his final target, the mastery of complexity in arithmetic and computing technological know-how. He has forcefully argued that attractiveness and style are necessary to this mastery. The identify of this ebook, selected to mirror his final target, comes from a sentence in an editorial of his on a few appealing arguments utilizing mathematical induction: "... once we recognize the conflict opposed to chaos, mess, and unmastered complexity as one among computing sci- ence's significant callings, we needs to admit that 'Beauty Is Our Business'."
