    Default 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.

    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.

    An algorithm is any set of detailed instructions which results in a predictable end-state from a known beginning.
    Here are different types of algorithms ---


    • Dynamic Programming Algorithms
    • Greedy Algorithms
    • Brute Force Algorithms
    • Randomized Algorithms
    • Branch and Bound Algorithms
    • Simple Recursive Algorithms
    • Backtracking Algorithms
    • Divide and Conquer Algorithms

    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.
