A return statement results in the exit of the function itself. A conditional Statement has the following forms: We also employ the following case statement: A case statement is interpreted as follows. If oondition 1 is true, statement 1 gets executed and the case statement is exited. If condition 2 is true, statement 2 gets executed and the case staterriellt exited, and so on.

If none of the conditions cmidition 1 ,. The else clause is optional. Input and output are done using the instructions read and write.

No format is used to specify the size of input or output quantities. There is only one type of procedure: An algorithm con- sists of a heading and a body. Simple variables to procedures are passed by value. Arrays and records are passed by reference.

An array name or a record name is treated as a pointer to the respective data type. Result and 2' are local variables. Next we present two examples to illustrate the process of translating 3. Example 1. A simple solution is given by the following Although this statement adequately describes the sorting problem, it is not an algorithm because it leaves several questions unanswered.

For exam- ple, it does not tell us where and how the elements are initially stored or where we should place the result. Algorithm 1. We can solve the latter problem using the code t: Eventually a[n] is compared with the Current rninirnum, and we are done. Putting all these observations together, we get the algorithm Se! The obvious question to ask at this point is, Does Se ectionSort work correctly? Throughout this text we use the notation o['l: Theorem 1.

We observe at this point that the upper limit of the for loop in line 4 can be changed to n — 1 without damaging the correctness of the algorithm. Cl Similarly, an algorithm is said to be recursive if the same algorithm is invoked in the body.

Algorithm A is said to be indire: These recursive mechanisms are extremely powerful, but even more importantly, many times they can express an otherwise complex process very clearly. For these reasons we introduce recursion here. This is unfortunate be- cause any algorithm that can be written using assignment, the if-then—e1se statement, and the while statement can also be written using assignment, the iflthen-else statement, and recursion. Of course, this does not say that the resulting algorithm will necessarily be easier to understand.

However, there are many instances when this will be the case. When is recursion an appropriate mechanism for algorithm exposition? The following two examples show how to develop a recursive algorithm. In the first example, we consider the Towers of Hanoi problem, and in the second, we generate all possible permutations of a list of characters. According; to leg- end, at the time the world was created, there was a diamond tower labeled A with 64 golden disks.

The disks were of decreasing size and were stacked on the tower in decreasing order of size bottom to top. Besides this tower there were two other diamond towers labeled B and C. Since the time of creation, Brahman priests have been attempting to move the disks from tower A to tower B using tower C for intermediate storage. As the disks are very heavy, they can be moved only one at a time.

In addition, at no time can a disk be on top of a. According to legend, the world will come to an end when the priests have completed their task. Assume that the number of disks is n. To get the largest disk to the bottom of tower B, we move the remaining Now we are left with the task of moving the disks from tower C to tower B. To do this, we have towers A and B available. The fact that tower B has a disk on it can be ignored as the disk is larger than the disks being moved from tower C and so any disk can be placed or1 top of it.

The recursive nature of the solution is apparent from Algorithm 1. Observe that our solution for an nrrlisk problem is formulated in terms of solutions to two n — 1 —disk problems. El Example 1. For exampie, if the set. It is easy to see that given 71 elements, there are 11! A simple algorithm can be obtained by looking at the case of four elements a, b, c, d.

The answer can be constructed by writing 1. I followed by all the permutations of 1. It implies that we can solve the problem for a set with n elements if we have an algorithm that works on n — 1 eiements. These considerations lead to Algorithm 1. Try this algoritliru out on sets of length one, two, and three to ensure that you understand how it works.

If the polynomial is: Given For instance, if H. Write an algorithm to accomplish this. Devise an algorithm that inputs three integers and outputs them in nondecreasing order.

Present an algorithm that searches an unsorted array a. The factorial function 71! Write both a recursive and an iterative algorithm to compute n! Write both a recursive and an iterative algorithm to Compute 7. Write a recursive algorithm for computing this function. Then write a nonrectlrsive algoritlnn for computing it. The pt'ge m. Assume that the function inputs are 1, 2,.

Give an algorithm to solve the following problem: Consider the function F a: Set of 71 elements, the powerset of S is the set of all possible subsets of S. Write a recursive algorithm to compute powerset S. There are many criteria upon which we can judge an algorithm. For instance: Does it do what we want it to do? These criteria are all vitally important when it comes to writing soft- ware, most especially for large systems.

Though we do not dismiss how to reach these goals, we try to achieve them throughout this book with the pseutlocode algorithms we write. Hopefully this more subtle approach will gradually infect your own progra. There are other criteria. The time c: I1Ce evaluation can be loosely divided into two major phases: Space Complexity Algorithm abc Algorithm 1. This part typically includes the in- struction space i.

A variable part that consists of the space needed by component vari- ables whose size is dependent on the particular problem instance being solved, the space needed by referenced variables to the extent that this depends on instance characteristics , and the recursion stack space in- sofar as this space depends on the instance cliaracteristics.

When analyzing the space complexity of an algorithm, we concentrate solely on estimating S'p instance characteristics. For any given problem, we need first to determine which instance characteristics to use to measure the space requirements. This is very problem specific, and we resort to examples to illustrate the various possibilities. Generally speaking, our choices are limited to quantities related to the number and magnitude of the inputs to and outputs from the algorithm.

At times, more complex measures of the interrelationships among the data items are used. Making the assumption that one word is adequate to store the values of each of a, I , c, and the result, we see that the space needed by abc is independent of the instance characteristics. Consequently, Sp instance characteristics 2 G.

The space needed by n is one word, since it is of type integer. This is at least n words, since a must be large enough to hold the n elements to be summed. As in the case of Sum, the instances are characterized by n. The recursion stack space includes space for the formal para.

Assume that the return address requires only one word of niemory.

Each call to RSum requires at least three words including space for the values of n, the return address, and a pointer to a. E] The compile time does not depend on the instance characteristics. Also, we may assume that a compiled program will be run several times without recompilation.

Consequently, we concern ourselves with just the run time of a program. This run time is denoted by tp instance characteristics.

Because many of the factors tp depends on are not known at the time a program is conceived, it is reasonable to attempt only to estimate tp. If we knew the characteristics of tl1e compiler to be used, we could proceed to determine the number of additions, subtractions, multiplications, divisions, compares, loads, stores, and so on, that would be made by the code for P.

Obtaining such an exact formula is in itself an impossible task, since the time needed for an addition, subtraction, multiplication, and so on, often depends on the numbers being added, subtracted, multiplied, and so on. The value of tp n for any given 7; can be obtained only experimentally. The program is typed, compiled, and run on a particular machine. The execution time is physically clocked, and tp n obtained.

Even with this experimental approach, one could face difficulties.

In a multiuser system, the execution time depends on such factors as system load, the number of other programs running on the computer at the time program P is run, the characteristics of these other programs, and so on. We can go one Step further and count only the number of program steps.

A pmgrarn step is loosely defined as a syntactically or semantically mean- ingful segment of a program that has an execution time that is independent of the instance characteristics. For example, the entire statement return 1. The number of steps any program statement is assigned depends on the kind of statement. For example, comnients Count as zero steps; an as- signment statement which does not involve any calls to other algorithms is conrited as one step: The control parts for for and while statements have the following forms: The step count for each execution of the control part of a for statement is one, unless the counts attributable to carp?

Remaining executions of the for statement have a step count of one; and so oI1.

We can determine the number of steps needed by a program to solve a particular problem instance in one of two ways.

In the first method, we introdlicc a new variable, count, into the program. This is a global vari- able with initial value 0. Statements to increment count by the appropriate amoun1. This is done so that each time a statmnnnt in the original program is executed, c0'u. The change in the value of count by the time this program terminates is the number of steps executed by Algorithm 1. Since we are interested in determining only the change in the value of count, Algorithm 1.

For every initial value of count, Algoritlnns 1. It is easy to see that in the for loop, the value of count will increase by a total of ,. So each invocation of Sum Algorithm 1. El VVe see that tR5um 0: One way of solving any such recurrence relation is to make repeated substitutions for each micurrence of the function tggum on the right-hand side untii all such occurrences disappear: E] The step count is useful in that it tells us how the run time for a program changes with changes in the instance characteristics.

From the step count for Sum, we see that if n is doubled, the run time also doubles approximately ; if So, the run time grows linearly in n. Algorithms 1. The problem tackled in Algorithm 1. If the input to any problem instance is a single element, the input size is normally taken to be the number of bits needed to specify that element. Run times for many of the algorithms presented i11 this text are expressed as functions of the corresponding input sizes.

Introducing the coumf—incrementing statements leads to Algorithm 1. Examining Algorithm 1. C1 The second method to determine the step count of an algorithm is to build a table in which we list the total number of steps contributed by each statement. By combining these two quantities, the total contribution of each statement is obtained.

By adding the contributions of all statements, the step count for the entire algorithm is obtained. In Table 1. Table 1. This is the total cost of this line each time it is executed.

It includes all the steps that get executed as a result of the invocation of RSum from the else clause. The frequency and total steps columns have been split into two parts: This is necessary because the frequency and hence total Steps for some statements is different for each of these Cases.

Wllell you have obtained sufficient experience in computing Step counts, you can avoid constructing the frequency table and obtain the step count as in the following example. Each new term is obtained by taking the sum of the two previous terms. The number of steps is itself a function of the instance characteristics.

Usually, we choose those characteristics that are of iinpertance to us. For example, we might wish to know how the computing or run time ie, time complexity increases as the number of inputs increase. In this case the number of steps will be computed a function of the number of inputs alone.

For a different algorithm, we might be interested in determining how the computing time increases as the magnitude of one of the inputs increases.

In this case the number of steps will be computed as a function of the magnitude of this input alone.

Fundamentals of Computer Algorithms By Ellis Horowitz (1984)

Thus, before the step count of an algorithm can be determined, we need to know exactly which characteristics of the problem instance are to be used. In the case of Sum, we chose to measure the time complexity as a function of the number n of elements being added. For algoritlnn Add, the choice of characteristics was the number m of rows and the number n of columns in the matrices being added.

Once the relevant characteristics n. A step is any computation unit that is independent of the characteristics n, m, p, q, 7',. Thus, 10 additions can be one step; multiplications can also be one step; but n additions cannot. Nor can Once this has been done, the time complexity i.

The examples we have looked at so far were sufficiently simple that the time complexities were nice functions of fairly simple characteristics like the number of inputs and the number of rows and columns. For example, the searching algorithm you wrote for Exercise 4 in Section 1.

In other words, knowing n alone is not enough to estimate the run time of your algorithm. The best—case step count is the minimum number of steps that can be executed for the given parameters. The worst-case step count is the maximum number of steps that can be executed for the given parameters.

Our motivation to determine step counts is to be able to compare the time complexities of two algorithms that compute the same function and also to predict the growth in run time as the instance characteristics change. Determining the exact step count best case, worst case, or average of an algorithm can prove to be an exceedingly difiicuit task. Expending immense effort to determine the step count exactly is not a very worthwhiie endeavor, since the notion of a step is itself inexact.

Both the instructions: Because of the inexactness of what a step stands for, the exact step count is not very useful for comparative purposes. An exception to this is when the difference between the step counts of two algorithms is very large, as in 3n -i- 3 versus ?.

But even in this case, it is not necessary to know that the exact step count is For most situations, it is adequate to be able to make a statement like C 5 tp n 5 or tQ n, 'm.

For small values of n, either algorithm could be faster depending on c1, c2, and No matter what the values of cl,: This value of 77 will be called the b7'eak: If the break-even point is zero, then the algorithm with complexity c is always faster or at least as fast.

The exact break-even point cannot be determined analytically. To know that there is a break-even point. There is little advantage in determining the exact values of: In the remainder of this chapter, the functioris f and g are iionnegative functions. C1 Example 1. Similarly, 0 n logn is better than 0 7z2 but not as good 0 7L. These seven computing tin1es—0 1 , 0 log 7: It does not say anything about how good this bound is.

Notice In fact, it is meaningless to say that 0 g n 2: The use of the symbol 2 is unfortunate because this symbol commonly denotes the equals relation. Left as an exercise.

The theta notation is more precise than both the the big oh and omega notations. The function f n 2- - g n iff g n is both an upper and lower bound on f n. This is in accordance with practice. For the algorithm Sum Aigoritlnn 1.

The answer to this question is that the asymptotic complexity i. This is usually done by first determining the asymptotic complexity of each statement or group of statements in the algorithm and then adding these coinpiexities.

The idea is to run the experiment repeatedly until the rat will zip through the maze without taking a single false path. A nudge on the instructor's part will also prove useful. On the other hand, an element that must move toward the beginning of the list cannot move faster than one step per pass, so elements move toward the beginning very slowly.

This means that at run time the address of each parameter is passed to the called procedure.
