In Steven Wolfram's blog entries, he discusses using mathematica to discover algorithms. I have tried several different google searches for papers on such topics, and have found none. I suspect this is a case where I'm not using the proper search terms. I could imagine some sort of genetic algorithm based approach that takes a genome and turns that into an algorithm, but I would be curious what specifically he is discussing.

In case you are looking forward to design algos using M's built in APIs than you might face real problem in calculating complexity as they are completely hidden. You shall use Hashkell rather, as all the implementations are open in its compiler. M is almost a subset of Haskell. –  Rorschach Nov 27 '13 at 20:30
