CS 38 PROBLEM SET 2: SOLUTIONS
Problem 1. (Pibonacci numbers) [10 points] For a nonnegative real number n, we dene the pibonacci number P (n) as follows: P (n) = 0 P (n 1) + P (n ) 0n<4 n4
Find an algorithm to compute P (n) in time quadratic in n. You may

Solutions to Homework 2
Solution to 1 (17.1-3)
lg n lg n
f (n) = n +
(2i 1) = n lg n +
2i < n lg n + 2n < 3n.
Hence, amortized cost is 3 per operation. Solution to 2 (17.2-2) Charge 3 for each operation.
Binary and Binomial Heaps
Supports the following operations.

Chapter 19: Binomial Heaps We will study another heap structure called, the binomial heap. The binomial heap allows for ecient union, which can not be done eciently in the binary heap. The extra cost paid is the minimum operation, which now requires O(log
