Unformatted text preview: T A of A should be sT B + O ( skT G ) where T B is the running time of B and T G is the time to do a group operation. 1. [25 points] Consider the following algorithm A : algorithm A ( X ) 01 for i = 1 ,... ,s do 02 y i \$ ← B ( X ) 03 if g y i = X then return y i 04 return ⊥ Explain why A does not necessarily improve B . Give an example of B such that Adv dl G,g ( A ) ≤ 1 / 2. 2. [25 points] Provide an algorithm A that does improve B as desired. 1...

### What students are saying

• 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.
