Garwick’s Algorithm Motivate using successor lists of the topological sort problem! Garwick’s technique:for 3 or more stacks (or any contiguous information): (fixed fraction) + space (~recent growth) + space (~size) 10% ρ x 90% (1-ρ) x 90% Table Table Base Max X X X X X X X X X X Base Top Base Top Base Top Base Top Base 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 Allocation Algorithm : Reallocates space for sequential stacks when overflow occurs (i.e. when an element is to be inserted in some stack k but Top(k)+1>Base(k+1) - so if entered it would overwrite the bottom element of the (k+1) th stack). Moving Algorithm : Assumes Top(k) has been changed to Top(k)+1 and then overflow was recognized but Top(k) was not changed back. Assume arrays Top, Base, Oldtop, Newbase and Increase. Base(i) = Top(i) implies stack i is empty. The algorithm is invoked when some stack overflows. The Garwick Algorithm : 1. a) Calculate Total Space Used ( ∑ i=1, N (Top(i)-Base(i)) )

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
