Definition of Algorithm

Algorithm must have the following five characteristic features:

1.      Input

2.      Output

3.      Definiteness

4.      Effectiveness

5.      Termination.

Thus, an algorithm can be described as a sequence of definite & effective instructions, which terminates along the production of correct output from the given input.
