In LaTeX, the `hyperref` package can be challenging to work with. It is well known that the `hyperref` package must be loaded last, BUT when using the `algorithm` package as well things get tricky. `algorithm` must be loaded after `hyperref` BUT, doing the following error if figures are used at the same time with pdfTeX:

`ERROR: pdfTeX warning (ext4): destination with the same identifier (name{figure.1})`

The solution is to load the `float` package (which is normally loaded by other more high-level packages) before `hyperref` like so:
``` \usepackage{amsmath,amsymb,graphicx,subfigure,etc.,etc.} \usepackage{float} \usepackage{hyperref} \usepackage{algorithm} ```

The other solution is to not use pdfLaTeX, and use regular LaTeX instead.
