What I am trying to say: "It is important to design efficient selection algorithms and more generally efficient resource allocation algorithms". Note that the resource allocation algorithm include the selection algorithms.

Is the following sentence correct to express the above idea:

It is important to design efficient selection algorithms and more generally resource allocation algorithms.

In other words, should I add another 'efficient' after 'and more generally'?

I'm finding the original sentence is a little overloaded, so I've tried to simplify it by separating its two ideas as:

"It's important to design efficient selection algorithms. It follows that resource algorithms -- of which selection algorithms are a subgroup -- also need to be designed for efficiency."

  • Agree. Commas, or periods and dashes, are helpful to make the sentence more readable. – whiskeychief Jul 29 '19 at 10:55

If "generally" goes with "more" you should add the commas because the phrase "more generally," is not necessary.

You may remove them if you mean "... generally-resource ..." (paraphrased forom comments by Teacher KSHuang)
