Algorithms are a fascinating use case for visualization. To visualize an
algorithm, we don’t merely fit data to a chart; there is no primary dataset.
Instead there are logical rules that describe behavior. This may be why
algorithm visualizations are so unusual, as designers experiment with novel
forms to better communicate. This is reason enough to study them.
