Book Title : Companion to Concrete Mathematics.
Publication : Dover renewed 2004 2 volumes in one. Copyright 1972/1976.
I found this book extremely nice.
To whet your appetite he talks about reification as well as some plain and less plain way to accelerate series convergence. In a few words it is a rare blend of concreteness and conceptualization. It smells a bit like Concrete Mathematics (by Knuth and co..) but the only information I found was an an depth review by Klamkin (not entirely positive though).
QUESTION : I would like to find connections : information about the author, and for those who appreciate this book or heard loadably about it: what others books/works are in the same vein ?
