Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

On 6 August 2002, Edsger Wybe Dijkstra, Professor Emeritus of Computer Sciences and Mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin, died at his home in Nuenen, the Netherlands following a long battle with cancer.

Dijkstra was a prodigious writer. Some of his manuscripts can be accessed from the University of Texas. Dijkstra's fine works and words convey many influential thoughts and ideas that will continue to occupy us for very many years to come.
