Delay in spaced repetition is the use of an interval that is longer than the optimum interval. All SuperMemo algorithms are pretty strong in handling delays. However, only Algorithm SM-17 (and later) computes the right response to a delay allowing for non-linearity of the impact of the delay on memory stabilization.
