algorithm

algorithm
A formula or procedure for solving a problem or carrying out a task. In the context of this book, an algorithm is a procedure, formula, or rules in a computer program or set of programs, often expressed in algebraic notation, that follows a logical unambiguous step-by-step process to retrieve a set of results, solve a problem, make a decision, manipulate or alter data, or achieve some other result or state. Although a computer program may be considered one large algorithm, in common usage in computer science, the term typically refers to a small procedure applied recurrently.
