Using Recursion 17 A Better Fibonacci Algorithm  Use linear recursion instead Algorithm  LinearFibonacci (k):       Input:  A nonnegative integer k       Output:  Pair of Fibonacci numbers (F , F k - 1 )      if  k =  then return  (k 0)      else (i,  j)    =    LinearFibonacci ( -   1) return  (i +j, i)   LinearFibonacci  makes k - 1 recursive calls ©  2010 Goodrich, Tamassia

Using Recursion 19 Algorithm for Multiple Recursion Algorithm PuzzleSolve (k,S,U): Input: Integer k, sequence S, and set U (universe of elements to test) Output: Enumeration of all k-length extensions to S using elements in U without repetitions for all e in U do Remove e from U {e is now being used} Add e to the end of S if k = 1 then Test whether S is a configuration that solves the puzzle if S solves the puzzle then return “Solution found: ” S else PuzzleSolve (k - 1, S,U) Add e back to U {e is now unused} Remove e from the end of S ©  2010 Goodrich, Tamassia

    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.
