Studying advice

I don’t know much when it comes to computers, But If I wanted to learn how to programm algorithms that perform symbolic calculations and other techniques used to solve or aid mathematical problems, and to be able to classify the efficiency of different types of algorithms in terms of different factors, what sub field of … Read more

Pre-requisite knowledge before diving into algorithms

I’m having some difficulty trying to follow what the authors of some of the more highly recommended books on algorithms. I ran into the same problem when trying out some online courses. My goal is to prepare myself to start learning fundamental algorithms for use in low-level languages by means of understanding them mathematically. So … Read more

A physical algorithm that finds all integer partitions of a number

If this is not the right forum for this question let me know. I am looking for a physical algorithm that can be easily followed by anyone not knowing much mathematics to get integer partitions of a number. I have come up with the following way – but there is an issue (described later). Suppose … Read more

How does a computer direct the processing of information

So I’m reading Introduction to computing systems:From bits and gates to C and beyond, and the author states that a CPU is the mechanism that …directs the processing of information. Which is figuring out what task should get carried out next My question is: what exactly does he mean when he says that a processor … Read more
