Dictionary of Algorithms and Data Structures

Dictionary of algorithms, algorithmic techniques, data structures, archetypal problems, and related definitions. Algorithms include common functions, such as Ackermann’s function. Problems include traveling salesman and Byzantine generals. Some entries have links to implementations and more information. Index pages list entries by area and by type. The two-level index has a total download 1/20 as big as this page. Currently we do not include algorithms particular to business data processing, communications, operating systems or distributed algorithms, programming languages, AI, graphics, or numerical analysis: it is tough enough covering “”general”” algorithms and data structures. If you have suggestions, corrections, or comments, please get in touch with Paul Black. Some terms with a leading variable, such as n-way, m-dimensional, or p-branching, are under k-. You may find useful entries in A Glossary of Computer Oriented Abbreviations and Acronyms.
