Are you saying that the most complex algorithm you've ever implemented is a depth-first/breadth-first traversal? Or am I misunderstanding something. I glanced through your latest articles but didn't see anything mentioned.

I guess the most complicated I've dealt with is noisy sparse signals recovery using Kalman filter[^] variants while I was working at Marine Technologies[^] circa ~2006. Kalman wasn't even the hard part... the underlying Gaussian mixture model[^] was where all the magic really happens. The reason it's considered difficult is because it's an approximation and there is always a better approximation to be found. We had to hire a mathematics professor from Norway as a consultant to help. Math is hard.
