Quick Reference

A measure of the computer time or space required to solve a problem by means of an algorithm of interest, expressed as a function of the dimensions of the problem. If a problem with n dimensions can be solved in at most P(n) time units, where P is a polynomial, then the algorithm is said to have polynomial–time complexity.
