This is a dictionary of algorithms, algorithmic techniques, data structures, archetypal problems, and related definitions, presented by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).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.
It does not include algorithms particular to business data processing, communications, operating systems or distributed algorithms, programming languages, AI, graphics, or numerical analysis. They have a hard enough time keeping up with and covering “general” algorithms and data structures.
