What is Algorithm

Handbook of Research on Visual Computing and Emerging Geometrical Design Tools
A set of rules that precisely defines a sequence of operations for solving a given problem. It starts from an initial input of instructions that describe a computation that proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states, producing an output and a final ending state.

Algorithms-Aided Sustainable Urban Design: Geometric and Parametric Tools for Transit-Oriented Development
Fernando T. Lima (Universidade Federal de Juiz de Fora, Brazil), José Ripper Kós (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), and Rodrigo Cury Paraizo (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-5225-0029-2.ch035
Abstract
This chapter is part of a research on algorithmic approaches to sustainable urban design. It focuses on the use of computational tools to provide quick and dynamic assessment while planning and discussing interventions in urban areas. The objective is to address the use of algorithmic systems to formulate effective strategies for sustainable urban projects, guided by Transit Oriented Development (TOD) principles. TOD is an urban development model that considers geometric principles and measurable parameters for designing sustainable cities. It advocates the creation of mixed-use neighborhoods within walking distance to a variety of transportation options and amenities, so that basic urban needs are easily accessible. In addition to establish a theoretical framework connecting algorithmic-parametric concepts and geometrical features of TOD, this chapter describes an experimental employment of algorithmic models working on TOD principles, in order to enhance a systematic and dynamic testing and subsequent argumentation for sustainable urban projects.

Integration of Educational Games in Synchronous Virtual Classroom: A Case Study
A well-defined procedure to solve a problem. It generally takes some input, carries out a number of effective steps in a finite amount of time and produces some output. A common method of its simplification is to divide a problem into sub-problems of the same type. A method of specifying a process by means of itself is called recursion. The recursive algorithm calls itself with smaller and smaller subsets of the original input, doing a little bit of work each time, until it reaches the base case. Recursion is a very simple, yet useful and powerful programmer’s tools. A programming routine activates itself and it can be a subroutine or a function.
