1 CSE 421 Algorithms Richard Anderson Lecture 16 Dynamic Programming Dynamic Programming Weighted Interval Scheduling Given a collection of intervals I 1 ,…,I n with weights w 1 ,…,w n , choose a maximum weight set of non-overlapping intervals 4 6 3 5 7 6 Optimality Condition Opt[ j ] is the maximum weight independent set of intervals I 1 , I 2 , . . ., I j Opt[ j ] = max( Opt[ j – 1], w j + Opt[ p[ j ] ]) – Where p[ j ] is the index of the last interval which finishes before I j starts Algorithm MaxValue(j) = if j = 0 return 0 else return max( MaxValue(j-1), w j + MaxValue(p[ j ])) Worst case run time: 2 n A better algorithm M[ j ] initialized to -1 before the first recursive call for all j MaxValue(j) = if j = 0 return 0; else if M[ j ] != -1 return M[ j ]; else M[ j ] = max(MaxValue(j-1), w j + MaxValue(p[ j ])); return M[ j ]; Iterative Algorithm Express the MaxValue algorithm as an iterative algorithm MaxValue { }

### 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.
