Variables, expressions, assignments

  • Alexander Shen
Part of the Springer Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics and Technology book series (SUMAT)


In this chapter we begin (section 1.1) with simple programming problems using variables, assignments and basic constructs (if- and while-statements). Then (section 1.2) we introduce arrays and programming techniques related to them. Finally (section 1.3), we consider a useful approach that helps to develop one-pass algorithms; each of the elements of the input array is processed once.
