Common LISP: A Gentle Introduction to Symbolic Computation
by David S. Touretzky
Publisher: Benjamin-Cummings Pub Co 1990
Number of pages: 587
This book is about learning to program in Lisp. Although widely known as the principal language of artificial intelligence research—one of the most advanced areas of computer science—Lisp is an excellent language for beginners. It is increasingly the language of choice in introductory programming courses due to its friendly, interactive environment, rich data structures, and powerful software tools that even a novice can master in short order.

by Al Aho, Jeff Ullman - W. H. Freeman
Aho and Ullman have created a C version of their groundbreaking text. This book combines the theoretical foundations of computing with essential discrete mathematics. It follows the same organizations, with all examples and exercises in C.
by Christine Alvarado, et al. - Harvey Mudd College
Our objective is to provide an introduction to computer science as an intellectually vibrant field rather than focusing exclusively on computer programming. We emphasize concepts and problem-solving over syntax and programming language features.
by Victor Eijkhout - University of Texas
A computational scientist needs knowledge of several aspects of numerical analysis and discrete mathematics. This text covers: computer architecture, parallel computers, machine arithmetic, numerical linear algebra, applications.
by Stephen Wolfram - Wolfram Media
Starting from a collection of simple computer experiments -- illustrated in the book by striking computer graphics -- Wolfram shows how their unexpected results force a whole new way of looking at the operation of our universe.
