Abstract : An informal exposition is given of an algebraic language in which to describe flow charts. The assumption by machines of some of the programming tasks still performed by humans  the isolation of subroutines, the design of test problems, the allocation of sections of a process to different controls or storage media, for example rests in part on the development of adequate languages in which to indicate program structure. There is, moreover, possible application for such languages in the formal simplication and analysis of large computer game (! WHICH TO DESCRIBE FLOW CHARTS.
