  Analysis of algorithms - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Usually the efficiency or complexity of an algorithm is stated as a function relating the input length to the number of steps (time complexity) or storage locations (space or memory complexity) required to execute the algorithm.
Algorithm analysis is an important part of a broader computational complexity theory, which provides theoretical estimates for the resources needed by any algorithm which solves a given computational problem.
In theoretical analysis of algorithms it is common to estimate their complexity in asymptotic sense, i.e., to estimate the complexity function for reasonably large length of input.

 Numerical analysis - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Numerical analysis is the study of algorithms for the problems of continuous mathematics (as distinguished from discrete mathematics).
A related art is to find stable algorithms for solving ill-posed problems, which generally requires finding a well-posed problem whose solution is close to that of the ill-posed problem and solving this well-posed problem instead.
Root-finding algorithms are used to solve nonlinear equations (they are so named since a root of a function is an argument for which the function yields zero).

Predicting the performance of algorithms is a likely outgrowth of ongoing research in analytic combinatorics and the analysis of random discrete structures.
The focus of this workshop is the average case analysis of algorithms, and its relation to the wider areas of analytic combinatorics, exact and limiting distributions, formal techniques, probability theory, combinatorics and computer science.

 Fibonacci Numbers
By analyzing an algorithm, we gain a better understanding of where the fast and slow parts are, and what to work on or work around in order to speed it up.
This is an iterative algorithm (one that uses loops instead of recursion) so we analyze it a little differently than we would a recursive algorithm.
Analysis of recursive program space is more complicated: the space used at any time is the total space used by all recursive calls active at that time.

 Analysis of Algorithms
Give an algorithm that solves a problem, we would like to be able to predict with confidence how long it will take, how much memory it will use, or how much of some other scarce resource it will consume.
The main difference between applying the scientific method to the natural sciences and to the analysis of algorithms is that the "universe" we are observing is the computer itself.
The observation that one algorithm is 10 times faster than another is unlikely to escape the notice of someone who waits 3 seconds for one to finish and 30 seconds for the other, but it is easy to overlook a small constant in a mathematical analysis.

 Computational Geometry, Algorithms and Applications
For many geometric problems the early algorithmic solutions were either slow or difficult to understand and implement.
In recent years a number of new algorithmic techniques have been developed that improved and simplified many of the previous approaches.
Readers are assumed to have a basic knowledge of the design and analysis of algorithms and data structures: they should be familiar with big-Oh notation and simple algorithmic techniques like sorting, binary search, and balanced search trees.

 Analysis of Algorithms
ANALYSIS OF ALGORITHMS is the branch of theoretical computer science concerned with characterizing the computer resources required by an algorithm.
We wish to characterize these resource requirements as functions of one or more of the "essential parameters" (from the standpoint of the resource to be measured) describing the data operated on by the algorithm.
The interesting questions in analysis of algorithms usually are concerned with values of the "essential parameters" that tend to make an algorithm run slowly -- for example, n tending to infinity, if n is the size of a list to be sorted.

 An Introduction to the Analysis of Algorithms
Quite a few algorithms are presented and analyzed in great detail, but the emphasis is on the analysis techniques rather than on the algorithms.
This is in contrast with Cormen,Leiserson and Rivest, or Sedgewick's own "Algorithms" series which emphasize the algorithms rather than the analysis.

The goal of Analysis of Algorithms is to raise awareness of the effect that algorithms have on the efficiency of a program and to develop the necessary skills to analyze general algorithms used in programs.
The text presents the material with the expectation that it can be used with active and cooperative learning methodology, based on the premise that students learn more effectively and retain more information longer when they are active participants in the learning process.
To accomplish this, the chapters are clear and complete to encourage students to prepare by reading before class, and the text is filled with exciting examples and exercises that look at the efficiency of various algorithms to solve a problem.
