big-O notation. (definition) Definition: A theoretical measure of the execution of an algorithm, usually the time or memory needed, given the problem size n, which is usually the number of items. Informally, saying some equation f(n) = O(g(n)) means it is less than some constant multiple of g(n). The notation is read, "f of n is big oh of g of n".

This can happen due to said characters sharing a code point in the ISO 8859-1 and 8859-2 character sets,**Big-O notation**explained by a self-taught programmer.

**O notation**is a mathematical**notation**that describes the limiting behaviour of a function when the argument tends towards a particular value or infinity. It is a member of a family of**notations**invented by Paul Bachmann, Edmund Landau, and others, collectively called Bachmann–Landau**notation**or asymptotic**notation**.

**O Notation**is a way to formalize fuzzy counting It allows us to talk formally about how the runtime of an algorithm grows as the inputs grow We wont care about the details, only the trends**Big O notation**is a

**notation**used when talking about growth rates. It formalizes the notion that two functions "grow at the same rate," or one function "grows faster than the other," and such. It is very commonly used in computer science, when analyzing algorithms. Algorithms have a specific running time, usually declared as a function on its input size.

**O notation**is the language we use for talking about how long an algorithm takes to run. Its how we compare the efficiency of different approaches to a problem. Its how we compare the efficiency of different approaches to a problem.
