This problem is also called the interval scheduling problem. c Xin He (University at Buffalo) CSE 431/531 Algorithm Analysis and Design 32 / 49 Proof of Correctness Let S = {1, 2, . . . , n} be the set of activities to be selected.

We want to show |O| = |X|. We will do this by induction on n. Greedy Choice Property The activity 1 is selected by the greedy algorithm. We need to show there is an optimal solution that contains the activity 1. c Xin He (University at Buffalo) CSE 431/531 Algorithm Analysis and Design 33 / 49 Proof of Correctness Let S = {1, 2, . . . , n} be the set of activities to be selected.

So O is an optimal solution containing 1. c Xin He (University at Buffalo) CSE 431/531 Algorithm Analysis and Design 33 / 49 Proof of Correctness By the Greedy Ch...
