    Re: Algorithm

    Nitin,
    I am not sure if this is in the right forum.

    But here is my 2 cents anyway.

    programs = algorithms + data structures

    an algorithm, in a step by step description of thingd you need to do.

    for instance, to add two numbers, you have to

    -get the first number from user
    -get second number from user
    -add the two numbers
    -return the result to the user

    I agree that the above example is very trivial. At a higher level, study of algorithms helps programmers and computer scientists to use lesser time and/or space for programs. These are mainly (in my experience as a research assistant) useful for OS routines, encryption/decryption, machine learning/AI (this is what I worked on) etc.

    Hope this helps

    Re: Algorithm

    algorithm is step by step instruction for the program so that we can easily solve any type of program.... by using algorithm we can solve difficult program also...
