Leiserson Handout 28 Problem Set 8 Reading: Chapters 26.1–26.3 Both exercises and problems should be solved, but only the problems should be turned in. Exercises are intended to help you master the course material. Even though you should not turn in the exercise solutions, you are responsible for material covered in the exercises. Mark the top of each sheet with your name, the course number, the problem number, your recitation section, the date and the names of any students with whom you collaborated. Three-hole punch your paper on submissions. You will often be called upon to “give an algorithm” to solve a certain problem. Your write-up should take the form of a short essay. A topic paragraph should summarize the problem you are solving and what your results are. The body of the essay should provide the following: 1. A description of the algorithm in English and, if helpful, pseudocode. 2. At least one worked example or diagram to show more precisely how your algorithm works. 3. A proof (or indication) of the correctness of the algorithm. 4. An analysis of the running time of the algorithm. Remember, your goal is to communicate. Full credit will be given only to correct algorithms that are which are described clearly . Convoluted and obtuse descriptions will receive low marks. Exercise 8-1. Do Exercise 26.1-9 on page 650 of CLRS. Exercise 8-2. Do Exercise 26.2-4 on page 664 of CLRS....
