The art of turning ideas into code

Bandwidth

Prev: semantic noise

Next: signal/noise ratio

The bandwidth measures how much of the problem space is covered by a particular representation of a concept.

For instance, one can say that the bandwidth of the + operator in C is larger than the bandwidth of the add instruction in assembly language, because the C operator applies to floating-point values as well. Since C++ adds operator overloading, you can use the same notation for matrices or complex numbers. Consequently, the bandwidth of the + operator in C++ is larger than in C.
