A stack is a data structure where items are removed from the structure in reverse order they are added. The operation to add something to the stack is usually called "push", and the operation to remove something from the stack is usually called "pop". So you have something like:

stack s;
s.pop(); // 3
s.pop(); // 2
s.pop(); // 1
An algorithm is any mechanism to transform data.

Many algorithms depend on stacks to do their jobs in reasonable time; but there's nothing that inherently says "algorithms must use stacks" or similar.
