- Algorithm design
**Algorithm design**is a specific method to create a mathematical process in solving problems. Applied algorithm design isalgorithm engineering .Algorithm design is identified and incorporated into many solution theories of

operation research , such asdynamic programming and divide-and-conquer. Techniques for designing and implementing algorithm designs are algorithm design patterns [*[*] , such as template method patterns and decorator patterns, and uses of data structures, and name and sort lists. Some current day uses of algorithm design can be found in internet retrieval processes of web crawling packet routing and caching.*http://ww3.algorithmdesign.net/ch00-front.html Algorithm Design-Foundations, Analysis, and Internet Examples, Goodrich, Michael T., and Tamassia, Roberto, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 2002. ISBN: 0-471-38365-1*]Mainframe programming languages such as

ALGOL (for "Algo"rithmic "l"anguage),FORTRAN ,COBOL , PL/I,SAIL , and SNOBOL are computing tools to implement an "algorithm design"... but, an "algorithm design" (a/d) is not a language. An a/d can be a hand written process, eg. set of equations, a series of mechanical processes done by hand, an analog piece of equipment, or a digital process and/or processor.**Further reading*** [
