A tag is a keyword or label that categorizes your question with other, similar questions. Using the right tags makes it easier for others to find and answer your question.
a famous special case of the boolean satisfiability problem (SAT).
Questions about the science and art of determining properties of algorithms, often including correctness, runtime and space usage. Use the [runtime-analysis] tag for questions about the runtime of al…
Questions related to general, high level, techniques for the design of algorithms.
a sequence of well-defined steps that defines an abstract solution to a problem. Use this tag when your issue is related to design and analysis of algorithms.
Questions about ambiguity in context-free grammars.
A method in analysis of algorithms that considers the overall cost of a sequence of operations.
a form of declarative programming oriented towards NP-hard search problems
Theoretical results and techniques applied in practical settings.
Questions about algorithms that solve problems up to some bounded error.
Questions about implementing elementary arithmetic operations on a computer with hardware or algorithms. The numbers are often assumed to be in a binary representation, add the [floating-point] tag fo…

Questions about design and properties of agents that act in a dynamic environment and make decisions towards some goal without user control.
off-topic here. Do not ask questions about how to write code in assembly. However, conceptual questions about how coding in assembly is different may be appropriate. See our …
For questions about the assignment problem in combinatorial optimization, NOT for problems that you've been set as a homework assignment.
Questions about asymptotic notations and analysis
Questions about mathematical devices that read an input stream symbol by symbol and use a state transition map to produce an output stream, maybe using secondary storage.
