Using a binary search technique, we can test two endpoints, or bounds, to make sure the filter attenuation point of interest, such as the -3 dB point, is inside those bounds and split the difference until you reach the resolution of the instrument.

Twenty-one chapters under the main themes of iterative algorithms and loop invariants (section one), recursion (section two), and optimization problems (section three) cover topics that include: measures of progress and loop invariants, abstract data types, binary search, iterative sorting algorithms, abstractions and theory, recursion on trees, recursive images, graph search algorithms, network flows and linear programming, greedy algorithms, and dynamic programming algorithms.
Thus, for example, finding all positions for terms starting with "tex" leads to a binary search to obtain the positions pointed to by the array members 7 and 8 of Figure 1.
