The way I've always done it with my colleagues is this: If the success of your project depends upon my computer code, then I'm a co-author on your FIRST journal paper. After that, if you're just re-using the same code, then I just get an acknowledgement. But if I have to do significant re-coding (not just bug ...

You could simply say: the algorithm is faster (than the old one) but you probably want to indicate by how much its speed has increased: the new algorithm is n% faster than the reference version. If you have more than one number (n% for problems of class X, m% for problems of class Y), you should ...

I can't comment. Sorry about this, I had a question, but... I'll have to make it into an answer. It sounds like you want to use Big O notation, which is helpful when talking about algorithmic efficiency. In which case, Big O Notation might be the best bet for you right now. I was going to comment to ask if your problem could be solved with this, but just in ...
