A Study of the Physical Structure of Algorithms
May 1977 (vol. 3 no. 3)
pp. 250-258
S.H. Zweben, Department of Computer and Information Science, Ohio State University
A theory of the structural composition of an algoithm is presented which allows the frequencies of occurrence of the individual operators and operands to be estimated. It provides justification for some recent hypotheses which suggest certain functional relationships between properties of algorithms.
Index Terms:
Algorithm structure, frequency analysis, programming models, programming study, software physics.
