What is algorithm?
Algorithms is a finite set of instructions to be executed in a certain order to get the desired result. In general, the algorithm is independent of programming languages, ie an algorithm can be deployed in many different programming languages.
Characteristics of the algorithm
Not all procedures can be called an algorithm. An algorithm should have the following characteristics:
- Determination: Algorithms should be clear and not ambiguous. Each stage (or step) should be clear and carry only a certain purpose.
- Defined input data: An algorithm should have 0 or more specified input data.
- Output: An algorithm should have one or more defined output data, and should connect to the type of result you want.
- Stop: Algorithms must end after a finite number of steps.
- Efficiency: An algorithm should be enforceable with available sources, ie being able to effectively solve the problem in terms of time and resources allowed.
- Popularity: An algorithm is popular if this algorithm can solve a class of similar problems.
- Independence: An algorithm should have directives independent of any programming code.
This course is a series of algorithmic exercises, divided into different groups. Our task is to solve those exercises, apply the basic knowledge of different programming languages (C ++, JAVA, C #, ...)
