This WWW pages are not a digital version of the book, nor the complete contents of it. Here you will find the preface, table of contents, index and all source code of the handbook. The main goal is to make available through Internet the source code of many algorithms (in C and/or Pascal) that have been already tested.

The printed version of the Handbook includes over a thousand references and details many of the algorithms presented here. It should be ordered directly to Addison-Wesley or a specialized bookstore.
