How to remove the text “Function” from \function?

Im very new to latex and I want to write an algorithm like the picture below:

How can I write the Function of the algorithm like so? I saw alternatives such as \Procedure or \function but they give me the words "Function" Or "Procedure" in front. How can I achieve the headers' results as below for my function wrapper?

Is there another tag for this?

Below is an example of the latex code im using

\begin{algorithm}
\caption{recursiveAlgo}
\begin{algorithmic}[1]
\Function{recursiveAlgo}{$mst, path, currentNode, drilled$}
\State stop <- false
\While{$!stop$}
\If{currentNode.childNumber != 0}{
\For {$i=0$ to currentNode.childNumber - 1}
\State      drilled ++
\State      path.push\_back(currentNode.coord, currentNode.child[i].coord)
\State      recursiveAlgo(path, currentNode.child[i])
\EndFor}
\EndIf
\State \Return path;
\EndWhile
\EndFunction
\end{algorithmic}
\end{algorithm}


What I want to is to change the results of:

\Function{recursiveAlgo}{$mst, path, currentNode, drilled$}


Which appear as:

How do I show the function name without its type declared and the name in bold like the example in the first picture?

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – DG' Apr 30 '20 at 23:31
• @DG' Hi, Thank you for your suggestion, I've edited my question to include some MWE and clarify further what i want – Michael24 May 1 '20 at 8:17
• You code is still not compilable, but it's a good start. – DG' May 1 '20 at 10:13
• Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. – DG' May 1 '20 at 10:21

According to the manual, you can change the keywords:

3.1.10 Changing command names

One common thing for a pseudocode is to change the command names. Many people use many diﬀerent kind of pseudocode command names. In algpseudocode all keywords are declared as \algorithmic<keyword>.

If you want to change the keyword for \Function you have to declare:

\algrenewcommand\algorithmicfunction{\textbf{whatever}}

And you can leave it empty, of course:

\algrenewcommand\algorithmicfunction{}

• Many thanks and thank you for your time! – Michael24 May 1 '20 at 10:33

In algpseudocode.sty function was called like

\algdef{SE}[FUNCTION]{Function}{EndFunction}%
[2]{\algorithmicfunction\ \textproc{#1}\ifthenelse{\equal{#2}{}}{}{(#2)}}%
{\algorithmicend\ \algorithmicfunction}


Change to

\algdef{SE}[FUNCTION]{Function}{EndFunction}%
[2]{\algorithmicfunction\ \textproc{}\ifthenelse{\equal{}{}}{}{()}}%
{\algorithmicend\ \algorithmicfunction}


in your tex file at preamble

• Hi, Thank you for your answer although it's having the opposite effect of what i need. The results im getting now is just the words "Function" in bold without the name. To clarify, I hope to have just the name of the function shown in bold – Michael24 May 1 '20 at 9:31
