View Full Version : Algorithm Timing

Hi, my name is Andrew and I'm currently a Computer Science major. I was wondering if someone could give me an example or two (maybe more :) ) of why timing is important in Java. Why is it so important to create an algorithm/method that has O(n) = n log (n) timing? (For the record, I don't even know what that is; I just remember it from lecture) I'm just confused. Thanks!!
