Algorithm

A finite set of precise and well-defined instructions that describe a process or procedure for solving a problem or carrying out a specific task. These instructions are step-by-step and must be executed in a specific order to achieve the desired outcome. Algorithms are used in various fields, from mathematics and computer science to engineering and artificial intelligence, and can be expressed in different forms, such as flowcharts, pseudocode, or programming languages.

Efficiency and clarity in the definition of an algorithm are essential to ensure its correct implementation and understanding. Algorithms are fundamental in computer science and many other disciplines because they provide a systematic method for tackling complex problems.
