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 }.

LaTeX has several packages for typesetting algorithms in form of ” pseudocode “. The algorithmic package uses a different set of commands than the algorithmicx package.

An algorithm is defined as floating object like figures. Note to users who switched from the old algorithmic package: The CTAN-manual late a comprehensible list of examples and full set of controls. The documentation 1 says:.

The algorithm environment provides this and a few other useful features. This package is like algorithmic upgraded. For example, if I use algpseudocodethen I can’t add algorithmic because it is already included in the algorithm package.

Sign up using Facebook. I think algorithmicx offers the same functionality compared to algorithm2ebut I find its syntax clearer than the one latexx by algorithm2e. Unlike algorithmicalgorithm2e provides a relatively huge number of customization options to the algorithm suiting to the needs of various users. The pseudocode is usually put in an algorithm environment.

You may use only algorithmicx, and define the commands yourself, or you may use one of the predefined command sets. This is not compatible with revtex You can use the old algorithms with the algcompatible layout, but please use the algpseudocode layout for new algorithms.

TL;DR version:

Views Read Latest draft Edit View history. This page was last edited on 25 Novemberat Post as a alvorithm2e Name. Each line is set in math mode, so all the indentation and spacing is done automatically. Yes, you are right: The algorithm environment is meant to address these concerns by providing a floating environment for algorithms.


CTAN: Package algorithm2e

Retrieved from ” https: Detailed version algorithm Float wrapper for algorithms. The reason for two environments being provided is to allow the user maximum flexibility.

See the example for algorithmicxit uses the algpseudocode layout. When you use figures or tables, you can add a list of them close to the table of contents; the algorithm package provides a similar command.

I edited my answer to make it clear that it is only my subjective preference. The algorithm2e package first releasedlatest updated July according to the v5. You use algorithmicx the same way you use algorithmiconly the syntax and details are slightly different.
