Computer Science books:
Numerical Methods for Scientists and Engineers (Hamming),
Approximation Algorithms (Vazirani),
Types and Programming Languages (Pierce),
Advanced Types and Programming Languages (Pierce),
Computer Systems: A Programmer's Persective,
Computational Science & Engineering (Strang),
Data Structures and Algorithms in C++ (Goodrich, ...),
Modern Operating Systems (Tanenbaum),
Purely Functional Datastructures (Okasaki),
Intro to the Theory of Computation (Sipser),
Programming Language Pragmatics (Scott)

I think that's it. There are some practical programming books too... do you want a list of those?


Build Your own RObot,
CRC's Handbook of Physics and Chem 63rd. ed. (always useful)
C# Pocket Reference

That's all I can think of, other than what I might have from the library at the moment.

>can you list those as well?
Why? If you are looking for a reference on a particular topic, ask about it. "hundreds of books on... (blah)" isn't useful to anyone at all, unless they really want to learn about the book purchasing habits of some random individual on the internet.


Did anyone forgot: The Art of Computer Programing by Donald Knuth?

xkey mentioned it : TAOCP
Let's say we all have some books on computer languages, other computer oriented issues and mathematical isues. I have to much of them to mention them all here...
