## What is an algorithm?

The term algorithm (pronounced "AL-go-rith-um") is a procedure or formula for solving a problem. The word derives from the name of the Persian mathematician, Al-Khowarizmi (825 AD). A computer program can be viewed as an elaborate algorithm. In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm usually means a small procedure that solves a recurrent problem.

## Re: What is an algorithm?

Algorithm: A methodical, logical rule or procedure that will guarantee solving a particular problem. You will always find your solution. Contrasts with the usually speedier but also more error prone - heuristics.

Example: Decipher the unscrambled word - SPLOYOCHYG

- We could try each letter in each position, but generating and examining 907,200 resulting permutations would be exasperating. This is the step by step algorithm to decipher the word PSYCHOLOGY.

## Re: What is an algorithm?

An algorithm (pronounced AL-go-rith-um) is a procedure or formula for solving a problem. The word derives from the name of the mathematician, Mohammed ibn-Musa al-Khwarizmi, who was part of the royal court in Baghdad and who lived from about 780 to 850. Al-Khwarizmi's work is the likely source for the word algebra as well.
