CSE 331 Spring 2008 Homework 1 Solutions 1. (a) The following running times for the three algorithms were obtained on arctic. Your times will probably be slightly different. The source code used to obtain these times is available in the file hw1_prob1.cpp . For the cases where N = 3200 and N = 6400, the call to the first algorithm was commented out: it would have taken more than an hour to execute! All times are given in seconds.

This behavior suggests a polynomial running time. Since 8 = 2 3 , a good guess for the complexity of algorithm 1 would be Θ(N 3 ). The running time of algorithm 2 increases by a factor of 4 when N doubles. Noting that 4 = 2 2 , it seems likely that the complexity of algorithm 2 is Θ(N 2 ). Algorithm 3's running time appears to grow linearly with N. Therefore, it is probably Θ(N). (c) After modifying the subsequence functions slightly to count the number of times that the innermost loop was executed, the following execution counts were obtained. The execution count for these algorithms will always be the same for a given input size, so you should have the same results. The execution counts for the first algorithm with N = 3200 and N = 6400 were obtained on adriatic using a 64-bit long long integer.

These figures agree with the complexities guessed in part (b). The execution count of the innermost loop in algorithm 1 increases by a factor of about 8 every time N doubles. Since the execution counts are determined by the algorithm itself and are not system-dependent like the running times, this provides stronger evidence that algorithm 1 is Θ(N 3 ). In fact, applying a cubic regression function to the numbers here shows that the execution count can be exactly modeled by the function (N 3 + 3N 2 + 2N) / 6. Like the running time, the execution count of algorithm 2 increases by a factor of about four
