Looking at the relevant chapter in NR, I don't think there is any
license issue (no code provided in NR).
However, if you really want to play it safe, the paper by Thompson is
available here
I guess downloading it is OK, as seems to be
Thompson's own website.
What you could do is conform closely to Thompson's notation, instead
of NR's notation.
