Unformatted text preview: a h4 ig6 e k# 9 i b iC a aha 3.4 Problem 4: We have f (0) = f (1) = 1. ( a ): f (2) = f (1) f (0) = 0 f (3) = f (2) f (1) = 1 f (4) = f (3) f (2) = 1 f (5) = f (4) f (3) = 0 . ( b ): f (2) = f (1) f (0) = 1 f (3) = f (2) f (1) = 1 f (4) = f (3) f (2) = 1 f (5) = f (4) f (3) = 1 . ( c ): f (2) = f (1) 2 + f (0) 3 = 2 f (3) = f (2) 2 + f (1) 3 = 5 f (4) = f (3) 2 + f (2) 3 = 33 f (5) = f (4) 2 + f (3) 3 = 1214 . ( d ): f (2) = f (1) /f (0) = 1 f (3) = f (2) /f (1) = 1 f (4) = f (3) /f (2) = 1 f (5) = f (4) /f (3) = 1 . 3.4 Problem 5 ( a ): This is undefined for n = 1, because then f (1) = 2 f ( 1), and f ( 1) is not defined. ( b ): This is well-defined. We have f (1) = f (0) 1 = 0 f (2) = f (1) 1 = 1 f (3) = f (2) 1 = 2 f (4) = f (3) 1 = 3 . We can see that f ( n ) = 1 n , and can prove it by induction. For n = 0 its true. If its true for f ( n ) then f ( n + 1) = f ( n ) 1 = (1 n ) 1 = 1 ( n + 1) . ( c ): This is well-defined. We have f (0) = 2 f (1) = 3 f (2) = f (1) 1 = 2 f (3) = f (2) 1 = 1 f (4) = f (3) 1 = 0 f (5) = f (4) 1 = 1 . The formula is f ( n ) = braceleftbigg 2 , n = 0 4 n, n 1. 1 For n = 0 and n = 1 its clear. We now assume that n > 1 and that f ( n ) = 4 n . Then f ( n + 1) = f ( n ) 1 = (4 n ) 1 = 4 ( n + 1) . ( d ): This is well-defined. We have f (0) = 1 f (1) = 2 f (2) = 2 f (0) = 2 f (3) = 2 f (1) = 4 f (4) = 2 f (2) = 4 f (5) = 2 f (3) = 8 f (6) = 2 f (4) = 8 f (7) = 2 f (5) = 16 . The pattern is f ( n ) = braceleftbigg 2 n/ 2 , n even 2 ( n +1) / 2 , n odd = 2 n/ 2 ....
