Algorithms


Representing Algorithms

Need a precise and commonly accepted representation that supports multiple levels of abstraction.

The language of mathematics provides one possible starting point (for Computer Science, as for other sciences).

When structured into algorithmic form, this language is commonly referred to as pseudocode.


Question: What distinguishes the language of mathematics from the language(s) of computer science?
