oh! you mean...


Big O notation or Big Oh notation is a mathematical notation used to describe the asymptotic behavior of functions. Its purpose is to characterize a function's behavior for very large or very small inputs in a simple but rigorous way that enables comparison to other functions. More precisely, the symbol O is used to describe an asymptotic upper bound for the magnitude of a function in terms of another, usually simpler, function. There are also other symbols o, Ω, ω, and Θ for various other upper, lower, and tight bounds. It has two main areas of application: in mathematics, it is usually used to characterize the residual term of a truncated infinite series, especially an asymptotic series, and in computer science, it is useful in the analysis of the complexity of algorithms.


or was it the mystical symbolism of the first letter of the om-sign....?
