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 }.

Each line is set in math mode, so all the indentation and spacing is done automatically. Complete documentation is listed at [2]. Algorithm2e is an environment for writing algorithms in LaTeX2e.

This is an example taken from the manual official manual, p.

algorithm2e – Floating algorithm environment with algorithmic keywords

Like algorithmicthis package is also not compatible with Revtex I use algorithmicx with algpseudocode since they are superior to algorithmic. This layout is incomplete. You may use only algorithmicx, and define the commands yourself, or you may use one of the predefined command sets Example: Views Read Latest draft Edit View history. It is often useful for the algorithm produced by algorithmic to be “floated” to the optimal point in the document to avoid it being split across pages.


When placed within the text without being encapsulated in a floating environment algorithmic environments may be split over a page boundary, greatly detracting from their appearance.

The default numbering system for the algorithm package is to number algorithms sequentially. This page was last edited on 25 Novemberat I edited my answer to make it clear that it is only my subjective preference.

The package also provides a macro for typesetting a set like oatex LaTeX has several packages for typesetting algorithms in form of ” pseudocode “.

Your discussion is very clear about why, and whether, to prefer algorithmicx to algorithmicbut doesn’t offer much comparison to algorithm2e. The legal values for this option are: Yes, you are right: More details are in the manual hosted on aalgorithm2e ctan website. This is another algorithm environment just like algorithmic or algorithmicx. I am confused about the packages for writing simple “algorithms”.

You have predefined commands for common structures such as ifwhileprocedure.


There are also other layouts, such as: The algorithm environment provides this and a few other useful features. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

This will not, however, affect the final layout in the document. Sign up using Email and Password. I think algorithmicx offers the same functionality compared to algorithm2ebut I find its syntax clearer than the one provided by algorithm2e.
