Homework 1 Solutions CSCI-2300: Data Structures and Algorithms Spring 2007 1. 2.1) Order the following functions by growth rate: N , N , N 1 . 5 , N 2 , N log N , N log log N , N log 2 N , N log( N 2 ), 2 /N , 2 N , 2 N/ 2 , 37, N 2 log N , N 3 . Indicate which functions grow at the same rate. Solution: 2 /N , 37, N , N , N log log N , N log N , N log( N 2 ), N log 2 N , N 1 . 5 , N 2 , N 2 log N , N 3 , 2 N/ 2 , 2 N . N log N and N log( N 2 ) grow at the same rate. 2. 2.2) Suppose T 1 ( N ) = O ( f ( N )) and T 2 ( N ) = O ( f ( N )). Which of the following are true? (a) T 1 ( N ) + T 2 ( N ) = O ( f ( N )) (b) T 1 ( N ) T 2 ( N ) = O (1) (c) T 1 ( N ) = O ( T 2 ( N )) Solution: (a) True. (b) False. A counterexample is T 1 ( N ) = N 2 , T 2 ( N ) = N , and f ( N ) = N 2 . (c) False. The same counterexample applies. 3. 2.7) For each of the following six program fragments: (a) Give an analysis of the running time (Big-Oh will do). (b) Implement the code in the language of your choice, and give the running time for several values of N (c) Compare your analysis with the actual running times
