algorithm animation

algorithms are the formal procedures for performing some computational task, such as the procedure to sort a set of numbers. An algorithm animation is a graphical display of process over time (auditory cues are also quite common). Algorithm animations are especially useful for teaching and explaining complex processes and for helping programmers to debug their programs. This illustration shows one frame of an animation of the Quicksort algorithm.
