CSE 331: Introduction to Algorithm Analysis and Design Fall 2011 Homework 9 Due Friday, November 18, 2011 by 1:15pm in class Please submit each problem separately, i.e. each problem should begin on a new page and only the pages for one problem should be stapled together. Failure to do so might result in some problem(s) not being graded. For general homework policies and our suggestions, please see the policy document. Please make sure you follow the collaboration policy. Do not turn in Q 2(c). 1. (10 + 30 = 40 points ) We will consider the problem of exponentiating an integer to another. In particular, for non-negative integers a and n , define Power ( a,n ) be the number a n . (For this problem assume that you can multiply two integers in O (1) time.) (a) ( NO collaboration allowed on this problem ) Present a naive algorithm that given non-negative integers a and n computes Power ( a,n ) in time O ( n ). (For this part, there is no need to prove correctness of the naive algorithm.) (b) Present a divide and conquer algorithm that given non-negative integers a and n com- putes Power ( a,n ) in O (log n ) time. Note: To get full credit you must present a recursive divide and conquer algorithm and then analyze its running time by solving a recurrence relation. (Justify the correctness of your algorithm– a formal correctness proof is not required.) Hint: The following mathematical identity could be useful– for any real numbers
