Analysis of algorithms is concerned with accurate estimates of complexity parameters of algorithms and aims at predicting the behaviour of a given algorithm run in a given environment. It develops general methods for obtaining closed-form formulae, asymptotic estimates, and probability distributions for combinatorial or probabilistic quantities, that are of interest in the optimization of algorithms. Interest is also placed on the methods themselves, whether combinatorial, probabilistic, or analytic. Combinatorial and statistical properties of discrete structures (strings, trees, tries, dags, graphs, and so on) as well as mathematical objects (e.g., continued fractions, polynomials, operators) that are relevant to the design of efficient algorithms are investigated.

This section of Discrete Mathematics & Theoretical Computer Science seeks high quality articles on structural and algorithmic aspects of graphs and related discrete mathematical models. We particularly seek topics with an intersection between discrete mathematics and computer science. We handle submissions in all areas of finite graph theory.
