Precompute

Method of charging interest in which the annual interest is either deducted from the face amount of the loan when the funds are distributed or is added to the total amount and divided into the regular payments.

Precompute

To calculate the annual interest owed on a loan by either deducting the annual interest from the face amount of the loan, or adding the compound interest together and dividing it out equally over 12 monthly periods. This means that the effective interest paid will be higher than the stated amount on the loan. Because of this, most jurisdictions require lending institutions using precomputation to express the interest rate in simple interest terms.

Matt Bishop's fast version of crypt( ) [1] does all of these things and also precomputes even more functions, yielding twice the performance of the worm's algorithm but requiring nearly 200 KB of initialized data as opposed to the 6 KB used by the worm and the less than 2 KB used by the normal crypt( ).
search that expands blocks rather than vertices (by putting blocks onto the open list) and, for every block, precomputes paths from every fringe vertex of the block (that is, every vertex along the border of the block) to every other fringe vertex of the block and stores (them and) their lengths in a lookup table to speed up the [A.
