Knuth: professor of computer science at Stanford University; generally regarded as the preeminent scholar of computer science in the world.

Find a logical sequence of precise steps that solve the problem. Such a sequence of steps is called an algorithm. Every detail, including obvious steps, should appear in the algorithm. In the next section, we discuss three popular methods used to develop the logic plan: flowcharts, pseudocode, and top-down charts. These tools help the programmer break a problem into a sequence of small tasks the computer can perform to solve the problem. Planning also involves using representative data to test the logic of the algorithm by hand to ensure that it is correct.
