Project 1: Performance Measurement Given a list of ordered N integers, numbered from 0 to N - 1, checking to see that N is not in this list provides a worst case for many search algorithms. Consider two algorithms: one is called “ sequential search ” which scans through the list from left to right; and the other is “ binary search ” which is given on page 23 of your textbook. Your tasks are: (1) Implement an iterative version and a recursive version of sequential search; (2) Analyze the worst case complexities of the above two versions of sequential search and that of binary search; (3) Measure and compare the worst case performances of the above three functions for N = 100, 500, 1000, 2000, 4000, 6000, 8000, 10000. To measure the performance of a function, we may use C’s standard library time.h as the following: Note: If a function runs so quickly that it takes less than a tick to finish, we may repeat the function calls for K times to obtain a total run time, and then divide the total time by K to obtain a more accurate duration for a single run of the function.

    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.
