B.B. Karki, LSU 0.2 CSC 3102 Definition and Examples Recursive algorithm invokes (makes reference to) itself repeatedly until a certain condition matches Examples: Computing factorial function Tower of Hanoi puzzle Digits in binary representation Non-recursive algorithm is executed only once to solve the problem.

0.3 CSC 3102 Analyzing Efficiency of Recursive Algorithms Steps in mathematical analysis of recursive algorithms: Decide on parameter n indicating input size. Identify algorithm’s basic operation Determine worst , average , and best case for input of size n If the basic operation count also depends on other conditions. Set up a recurrence relation and initial condition(s) for C ( n )-the number of times the basic operation will be executed for an input of size n Alternatively count recursive calls. Solve the recurrence to obtain a closed form or estimate the order of
