Algorithm: Its a combination of sequence of finite steps to solve a particular problem. The theoretical structure of computer program performance and resource usage. It helps to find out modularity, correctness, user-friendliness, simplicity, scalability, robustness, functionality and many more.
Let us consider one problm of preparing a Tea:
Now what is requirement we know already but how we will procede that will teach you what exactly algorithm does.
Step1: get a empty vessel
Step 2: get some water
a. Do we have water??
1) If yes, put it in the vessel.
2) If no, do we want to buy water?
1. If yes , then go out and buy.
2. If no, we can terminate.
Step 3: Turn on the stove and move further..
Step 4 : Go ahead.
This is the most suitable problem to understand what is algorithm.
I can say you if you are a student of computer science, U have to deal with lot of problems regarding coding so first solve that problem with the help of algorithm and then move further to hard core section.
Algorithm will teach u the basics of programming and one thing I m telling u any problem in computers can't be solve without Algorithm and Theory of Computation. An algorithm is the step by step instructions to solve a given problem.
- Algorithms help us to understand scalability.
- Performance often draws the line between what is feasible and what is impossible.
- Algorithmic mathematics provides a language for talking about program behavior.
- The lessons of program performance generalize to other computing resources.
Here we will try to complete and learn all concept with theory and examples. Algorithm gives u the idea to solve a particular problem like if u r making a tea then what u need and how will u manage all the things is Algorithm.
Goal of Analysis of algorithm:
The goal of analysis is to compare algorithms mainly in terms of running time but also in terms of other factors like memory , developers effoert etc.like as we know C complier is faster than Java compiler but java contains many things like Abstraction, Polymorphism.
Steps to construct Algorithm
Step1: Find out the problem
Step2: Find out the input and output (There is many inputs but output is only one).
Step3: Condition should be satisfied
Step4: Design the algorithm
Step5: Flow chart
Step6: Validation and testing
Note: Step 4 and step 8 is main reason to call it Design and analysis of algorithm
Here is the structure of algorithm and course which we will learn in coming chapters:
