Most widely held works by Gerald Jay Sussman
Structure and interpretation of computer programs by Harold Abelson( Book )

74 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in English and French and held by 1,816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs has had a dramatic impact on computer science curricula over the past decade. This long-awaited revision contains changes throughout the text." "There are new implementations of most of the major programming systems in the book, including the interpreters and compilers, and the authors have incorporated many small changes that reflect their experience teaching the course at MIT since the first edition was published." "A new theme has been introduced that emphasizes the central role played by different approaches to dealing with time in computational models: objects with state, concurrent programming, functional programming and lazy evaluation, and nondeterministic programming. There are new example sections on higher-order procedures in graphics and on applications of stream processing in numerical programming, and many new exercises." "In addition, all the programs have been reworked to run in any Scheme implementation that adheres to the IEEE standard."--Jacket
Structure and interpretation of classical mechanics by Gerald Jay Sussman( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We now know that there is much more to classical mechanics than previously suspected. Derivations of the equations of motion, the focus of traditional presentations of mechanics, are just the beginning. This innovative textbook, now in its second edition, concentrates on developing general methods for studying the behavior of classical systems, whether or not they have a symbolic solution. It focuses on the phenomenon of motion and makes extensive use of computer simulation in its explorations of the topic. It weaves recent discoveries in nonlinear dynamics throughout the text, rather than presenting them as an afterthought. Explorations of phenomena such as the transition to chaos, nonlinear resonances, and resonance overlap to help the student develop appropriate analytic tools for understanding. The book uses computation to constrain notation, to capture and formalize methods, and for simulation and symbolic analysis. The requirement that the computer be able to interpret any expression provides the student with strict and immediate feedback about whether an expression is correctly formulated. This second edition has been updated throughout, with revisions that reflect insights gained by the authors from using the text every year at MIT. In addition, because of substantial software improvements, this edition provides algebraic proofs of more generality than those in the previous edition; this improvement permeates the new edition

Lambda : the ultimate imperative by Guy Lewis Steele( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report demonstrates how to model the following common programming constructs in terms of an applicative order language similar to LISP: Simple Recursion; Iteratiion; Compound Statements and Expressions; GO TO and Assignment; Continuation-Passing; Escape Expressions; Fluid Variables; and Call by Name, Call by Need, and Call by reference. The models require only (possibly self-referent) lambda application, conditionals, and (rarely) assignment. No complex data structures such as stacks are used. The models are transparent, involving only local syntactic transformations. Some of these models, such as those for GO TO and assignment, are already well known, and appear in the work of Landin, Reynolds, and others. The models for escape expressions, fluid variables, and call by need with the side effects are new. This paper is partly tutorial in intent, gathering all the models together for purposes of context.

Heuristic techniques in computer aided circuit analysis by Gerald Jay Sussman( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whereas other circuit analysis systems rely on classical, formal analysis techniques, EL employs heuristic inspection methods to solve rather complex DC bias circuits. These techniques also give EL the ability to explain any result in terms of its own qualitative reasoning processes. EL's reasoning is based on the concept of a local one-step deduction augmented by various teleological principles and by the concept of a macro-element. Several annotated examples of EL in operation and an explanation of how it works were presented. Also how EL can be extended in several directions, including sinusoidal steady state analysis were discussed. EL is significant not only as a novel approach to circuit analysis but also as an application of Artificial Intelligence techniques to a new and interesting domain
The revised report on SCHEME, a dialect of LISP by Guy Lewis Steele( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

SCHEME is a dialect of LISP. It is an expression-oriented, applicative order, interpreter-based language which allows one to manipulate programs as data. It differs from most current dialects of LISP in that it closes all lambda-expressions in the environment of their definition or declaration, rather than in the execution environment. This has the consequence that variables are normally lexically scoped, as in ALGOL. However, in contrast with ALGOL, SCHEME treats procedures as a first-class data type. They can be the values of variables, the returned values of procedures, and components of data structures. Another difference from LISP is that SCHEME is implemented in such a way that tail-recursions execute without net growth of the interpreter stack. The effect of this is that a procedure call behaves like a GOTO, and thus procedure calls can be used to implement iterations, as in PLASMA. A complete 'user manual' for the SCHEME language is given. Some features described here were not documented in the original report on SCHEME (for instance particular macros). Other features were added, changed, or delected as our understanding of certain language issues evolved. Annotations to the manual describe the motivations for these changes
