The following topics are immediate sub-topics of Algorithm.

• #### Term: Binary Search

• Signs proposed: 0
• Listed under: ... >> Theory >> Algorithm
• Definition: The idea is to look at the element in the middle. If the key is equal to that, the search is finished. If the key is less than the middle element, do a binary search on the first half. If it's grea...
• #### Term: Hailstone sequences

• Signs proposed: 0
• Listed under: ... >> Theory >> Algorithm
• Definition: they have the property that they often rise and fall in unpredictable patterns, which is somehow analogous to the process that forms hailstones.
• #### Term: Merge sort

• Signs proposed: 0
• Listed under: ... >> Theory >> Algorithm
• Definition: is an comparison-based sorting algorithm. It is stable, meaning that it preserves the input order of equal elements in the sorted output. It is an example of the divide and conquer algorithmic para...
• #### Term: Procedural Decomposition

• Signs proposed: 0
• Listed under: ... >> Theory >> Algorithm
• Definition: A separation into discernable parts, each of which is simpler than the whole.
• #### Term: Selection Sort

• Signs proposed: 0
• Listed under: ... >> Theory >> Algorithm
• Definition: is an sorting algorithm that repeatedly finds the smallest unprocessed element of the array and moves it to the frontmost remaining slot of the array. To clarify, the algorithm makes many passes ov...
