Chapter 1 Basic Concepts Algorithm An Algorithm is a finite sequence of instructions, each of which has a clear meaning and can be performed with a finite amount of effort in a finite length of time. No matter what the input values may be, an algorithm terminates after executing a finite number of instructions. In addition every algorithm must satisfy the following criteria: Input: there are zero or more quantities, which are externally supplied; Output: at least one quantity is produced; Definiteness: each instruction must be clear and unambiguous; Finiteness: if we trace out the instructions of an algorithm, then for all cases the algorithm will terminate after a finite number of steps; Effectiveness: every instruction must be sufficiently basic that it can in principle be carried out by a person using only pencil and paper. It is not enough that each operation be definite, but it must also be feasible. In formal computer science, one distinguishes between an algorithm, and a program. A program does not necessarily satisfy the fourth condition. One important example of such a program for a computer is its operating system, which never terminates (except for system crashes) but continues in a wait loop until more jobs are entered. We represent algorithm using a pseudo language that is a combination of the constructs of a programming language together with informal English statements. Performance of a program: The performance of a program is the amount of computer memory and time needed to run a program. We use two approaches to determine the performance of a program. One is analytical, and the other experimental. In performance analysis we use analytical methods, while in performance measurement we conduct experiments. Time Complexity: The time needed by an algorithm expressed as a function of the size of a problem is called the time complexity of the algorithm. The time complexity of a program is the amount of computer time it needs to run to completion. The limiting behavior of the complexity as size increases is called the asymptotic time complexity. It is the asymptotic complexity of an algorithm, which ultimately determines the size of problems that can be solved by the algorithm. 1

Space Complexity: The space complexity of a program is the amount of memory it needs to run to completion. The space need by a program has the following components: Instruction space: Instruction space is the space needed to store the compiled version of the program instructions. Data space: Data space is the space needed to store all constant and variable values. Data space has two components:   Space needed by constants and simple variables in program. Space needed by dynamically allocated objects such as arrays and class instances. Environment stack space: The environment stack is used to save information needed to resume execution of partially completed functions. Instruction Space: The amount of instructions space that is needed depends on factors such as:  The compiler used to complete the program into machine code.  The compiler options in effect at the time of compilation  The target computer. Algorithm Design Goals The three basic design goals that one should strive for in a program are: 1. 2. 3. Try to save Time Try to save Space Try to save Face A program that runs faster is a better program, so saving time is an obvious goal. Like wise, a program that saves space over a competing program is considered desirable. We want to “save face” by preventing the program from locking up or generating reams of garbled data. Classification of Algorithms If ‘n’ is the number of data items to be processed or degree of polynomial or the size of the file to be sorted or searched or the number of nodes in a graph etc. 1 Next instructions of most programs are executed once or at most only a few times. If all the instructions of a program have this property, we say that its running time is a constant. Log n When the running time of a program is logarithmic, the program gets slightly slower as n grows. This running time commonly occurs in programs that solve a big problem by transforming it into a smaller problem, cutting the size by some constant fraction., When n is a million, log n is a doubled. Whenever n doubles, log n increases by a constant, but log n does not double until n increases to n2. 2

n When the running time of a program is linear, it is generally the case that a small amount of processing is done on each input element. This is the optimal situation for an algorithm that must process n inputs. n. log n This running time arises for algorithms that solve a problem by breaking it up into smaller sub-problems, solving then independently, and then combining the solutions. When n doubles, the running time more than doubles. n2 When the running time of an algorithm is quadratic, it is practical for use only on relatively small problems. Quadratic running times typically arise in algorithms that process all pairs of data items (perhaps in a double nested loop) whenever n doubles, the running time increases four fold. n3 Similarly, an algorithm that process triples of data items (perhaps in a triple–nested loop) has a cubic running time and is practical for use only on small problems. Whenever n doubles, the running time increases eight fold. 2n Few algorithms with exponential running time are likely to be appropriate for practical use, such algorithms arise naturally as “brute–force” solutions to problems. Whenever n doubles, the running time squares. Complexity of Algorithms The complexity of an algorithm M is the function f(n) which gives the running time and/or storage space requirement of the algorithm in terms of the size ‘n’ of the input data. Mostly, the storage space required by an algorithm is simply a multiple of the data size ‘n’. Complexity shall refer to the running time of the algorithm. The function f(n), gives the running time of an algorithm, depends not only on the size ‘n’ of the input data but also on the particular data. The complexity function f(n) for certain cases are: 1. Best Case : The minimum possible value of f(n) is called the best case. 2. Average Case : The expected value of f(n). 3. Worst Case : The maximum value of f(n) for any key possible input. The field of computer science, which studies efficiency of algorithms, is known as analysis of algorithms. Algorithms can be evaluated by a variety of criteria. Most often we shall be interested in the rate of growth of the time or space required to solve larger and larger instances of a problem. We will associate with the problem an integer, called the size of the problem, which is a measure of the quantity of input data. 3
