The world of computing continues to expand and to cross new frontiers of public awareness. Jargon grows apace, and confusion abounds as the field moves from the domain of specialists into general knowledge. In preparing the Dictionary of Computing, the need for clear explanations of the concepts that affect more and more aspects of life and the terminology that accompanies them, has been recognized. The dictionary is aimed mainly at students and teachers of computing but should also be of value to professional and amateur computer users.

The fourth edition of the dictionary contains nearly 6000 terms used in computing, and has a comprehensive cross-reference system. Almost 1700 new entries have been added and many of the existing entries have been extensively updated. This reflects recent advances in all aspects of computing, especially in personal computing, computer graphics, networking, artificial intelligence, and computer security.
