# Algorithmic package in LaTeX

I want to write the following algorithm in LaTeX:

 V <- AllUnigramsInTraining(D)
N <- NumberOfTweets(D)
**for** each c ∈ C do
Nc <- Number of tweets in Class c
prior(c) <- [...]
Tweetsc <- All Tweets in class c
**for** each term t ∈ V do
Tct <- No. of times term t appeared in Tweetsc
**end for**
**for** each term t ∈ V do
prob[t][c] <- [...]
**end for**
**end for**


I wrote the following code but it is not compiling properly. Can anybody help?

\begin{algorithmic}
\STATE $V\gets AllUnigramsInTraining(D)$ \\
\STATE $N\gets NumberOfTweets(D)$ \\
\FOR each $c \in C$ \DO \\
\STATE $N_c\gets Number of tweets in Class c$ \\
\begin{equation}
prior(c) = \frac{N_c}{N} \\
\end{equation}
\STATE $Tweets_c\gets = All Tweets in class c$ \\
\FOR each term $t \in V$ \DO \\
T_ct = No. of times term t appeared in Tweets_c \\
\END
\FOR each term $t \in V$ \DO \\
\begin{equation}
$prob[t][c] = \frac{T_ct}{\sum_^t'{T_ct'+ 1}} \\ \end{equation} \END \END \end{algorithmic}  • Your question at SO got migrated here and subsequently got merged with this one.

You don't need \\ at the end of lines for starters. You have an (unbalanced) inline math $ inside of an equation. You have subscripts outside of math mode. Your sum notation has problems. I don't know what you want exactly, but this should at least give you output, whether it's exactly what you want... I don't know.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{algorithmic}
\begin{document}
\begin{algorithmic}
\STATE $V\gets$ AllUnigramsInTraining($D$)
\STATE $N\gets$ NumberOfTweets($D$)
\FORALL{$c \in C$}
\STATE $N_c \gets$ Number of tweets in Class $c$
\STATE \begin{equation}prior(c) = \frac{N_c}{N}\end{equation}
\STATE $Tweets_c \gets$All Tweets in class $c$
\FORALL{$t \in V$}
\STATE $T_ct$ = No. of times term $t$ appeared in $Tweets_c$
\ENDFOR
\FORALL{$t \in V$}
\STATE \begin{equation}prob[t][c] = \frac{T_ct}{\sum^{t'}T_ct'+ 1}\end{equation}
\ENDFOR
\ENDFOR
\end{algorithmic}
\end{document}


Your for statements are missing brackets, and your equation blocks should be \state lines.

There are some good examples in the LaTeX wikibook
