CS3230 Tutorial 5 1. Give an algorithm which finds the distance between closest pair of points, when all the points lie on a straight line (though not necessarily all on the x axis). Try to make the algorithm simpler than the one done in class. Ans: (A) Sort the points based on x -coordinate (as long as the points are not on a line perpen- dicular to x axis). (B) Find distances between adjacent points in the above sorted order, and report the shortest distance among these. In case the points are on a line perpendicular to x axis, then sort them based on y axis, and do (B) above. 2. Suppose we are sorting an array consisting of integers 0. Explain how one may mod- ify the inputs (in linear time) so that any sorting algorithm becomes a stable sorting algorithm. Your modification of the numbers should be such that one can easily obtain the original numbers back from the modification. Ans: (A) Suppose there are n integers in the array A .

### 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.
