TL;DR version: algorithm – float wrapper for algorithms. algorithmic – first algorithm typesetting environment. algorithmicx – second algorithm. The goal is not to entice you to use LaTeX for formatting your algorithms as Algorithm algo:max will find the maximum element in a finite sequence (Slide 14 in. \usepackage[options ]{algorithm2e}. Example. \begin{algorithm}[H] \SetAlgoLined \KwResult{Write here the result }.

You have predefined commands for common structures such as ifwhileprocedure.

This is an example taken from the manual official manual, p. An algorithm is defined as floating object like figures.


Note algorithm2w users who switched from the old algorithmic package: This package is like algorithmic upgraded. I think they should offer similar functionality, but I prefer the syntax of algorithmicx. There are also other layouts, such as:. The package also provides a macro for typesetting a set like this: You may use only algorithmicx, and define the commands yourself, or you may use one of the predefined command sets.


Email Required, but never shown. I use algorithmicx with algpseudocode since they are superior to algorithmic.

CTAN: Package algorithm2e

The algorithm2e package first releasedlatest updated July according to the v5. For typesetting real code, written in a real programming language, consider the listings package described in Source Code Listings. The algorithmicx package provides a number of popular constructs for algorithm designs. This is the environment in which you write your pseudocode. I edited my answer to make it clear that it is only my subjective preference. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.

LaTeX has several packages for typesetting algorithms in form of ” pseudocode “.

This is another algorithm environment just like algorithmic or algorithmicx. Sign up using Facebook. Detailed version algorithm Float wrapper for algorithms. They provide stylistic enhancements over a uniform style i. It is entered into by. Policies and guidelines Contact us.


The default numbering system for the algorithm package is to number algorithms sequentially. Like algorithmicthis package is also not compatible with Revtex It is often useful for the algorithm produced by algorithmic to be “floated” to the optimal point in the document to avoid it being split across pages.

The legal values for this option are: The CTAN-manual provides a comprehensible list of examples and full set of controls. In the text the n-th parameter is referenced by n. There are too many options, and it is confusing when to use what. For example, if I use algpseudocodethen I can’t add algorithmic because it is already included algorrithm2e the algorithm package.
