Summary: Average Case Analysis § We have walked through the process for conducting an average case analysis: § Characterize your input § Sample space § Probability Distribution § Measure § Define your random variable: average running time of algorithm § Compute the expected value of this RV § Algebra § Requires cleverness with recurrence relations! § Asymptotic Order of Growth

Fair Game? § You could pick this proof for the proof project and fill in the blanks § If you do so, include a section that lays out the high-level method for doing average case analysis in general!

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.
