Algorithms define how software should work. They define the rules that should be followed, and the order in which they should be applied.

There are many problems that software developers face; sometimes, the problems will have been solved previously by other programmers. There are a set of common algorithms that deal with methods of searching for data and sorting data, and these are generally referred to as standard algorithms.

The study of algorithms also examines their efficiency, as often, more than one algorithm exists to solve a problem.

The algorithms covered on this site are:
