The types will be clear from the conte; x: Whether a variable is global or local to a procedure will also be evident from the context. We assume simple data types such as integer, float, char, boolean. Cornpouncl data types can be formed with records.

Here is an example: On the other hand, if q is a. Assignment of values to variables is done using the assignment state- ment va, r1Ia. There are two boolean values true and false. Elements of Iriultidiniensiorial arrays are accessed using [ and For example, if A is a two dimensional array, the z', j tli element of the array is denoted A[i, 3'].

Array indiees start at zero. The following looping statenients are employed: The while loop takes the following form: When condition becomes false, the loop is exited.

The value of condition is evaluated at the top of the loop. The general form of a for loop is for 'ua. A variable of type integer or real or a numerical constant is a.

The for loop can be implemented as a while loop as follows: The instruction break; can be used within any of the above looping instructions to force exit.

In case of nested loops, break; results in the exit of the innermost loop that it is a part of. A return statement within any of the above also will result in exiting the loops. A return statement results in the exit of the function itself. A conditional Statement has the following forms: We also employ the following case statement: A case statement is interpreted as follows. If oondition 1 is true, statement 1 gets executed and the case statement is exited.

If condition 2 is true, statement 2 gets executed and the case staterriellt exited, and so on. If none of the conditions cmidition 1 ,. The else clause is optional. Input and output are done using the instructions read and write.

No format is used to specify the size of input or output quantities. There is only one type of procedure: An algorithm con- sists of a heading and a body. Simple variables to procedures are passed by value. Arrays and records are passed by reference. An array name or a record name is treated as a pointer to the respective data type. Result and 2' are local variables. Next we present two examples to illustrate the process of translating 3.

Example 1. A simple solution is given by the following Although this statement adequately describes the sorting problem, it is not an algorithm because it leaves several questions unanswered. For exam- ple, it does not tell us where and how the elements are initially stored or where we should place the result.

Algorithm 1. We can solve the latter problem using the code t: Eventually a[n] is compared with the Current rninirnum, and we are done. Putting all these observations together, we get the algorithm Se! The obvious question to ask at this point is, Does Se ectionSort work correctly?

Throughout this text we use the notation o['l: Theorem 1. We observe at this point that the upper limit of the for loop in line 4 can be changed to n — 1 without damaging the correctness of the algorithm. Cl Similarly, an algorithm is said to be recursive if the same algorithm is invoked in the body.

Algorithm A is said to be indire: These recursive mechanisms are extremely powerful, but even more importantly, many times they can express an otherwise complex process very clearly. For these reasons we introduce recursion here. This is unfortunate be- cause any algorithm that can be written using assignment, the if-then—e1se statement, and the while statement can also be written using assignment, the iflthen-else statement, and recursion.

Of course, this does not say that the resulting algorithm will necessarily be easier to understand. However, there are many instances when this will be the case. When is recursion an appropriate mechanism for algorithm exposition? The following two examples show how to develop a recursive algorithm. In the first example, we consider the Towers of Hanoi problem, and in the second, we generate all possible permutations of a list of characters.

According; to leg- end, at the time the world was created, there was a diamond tower labeled A with 64 golden disks.

The disks were of decreasing size and were stacked on the tower in decreasing order of size bottom to top.

Besides this tower there were two other diamond towers labeled B and C. Since the time of creation, Brahman priests have been attempting to move the disks from tower A to tower B using tower C for intermediate storage.

As the disks are very heavy, they can be moved only one at a time. In addition, at no time can a disk be on top of a. According to legend, the world will come to an end when the priests have completed their task. Assume that the number of disks is n.

To get the largest disk to the bottom of tower B, we move the remaining Now we are left with the task of moving the disks from tower C to tower B. To do this, we have towers A and B available. The fact that tower B has a disk on it can be ignored as the disk is larger than the disks being moved from tower C and so any disk can be placed or1 top of it.

The recursive nature of the solution is apparent from Algorithm 1. Observe that our solution for an nrrlisk problem is formulated in terms of solutions to two n — 1 —disk problems.

El Example 1. For exampie, if the set. It is easy to see that given 71 elements, there are 11! A simple algorithm can be obtained by looking at the case of four elements a, b, c, d.

The answer can be constructed by writing 1. I followed by all the permutations of 1. It implies that we can solve the problem for a set with n elements if we have an algorithm that works on n — 1 eiements.

These considerations lead to Algorithm 1. Try this algoritliru out on sets of length one, two, and three to ensure that you understand how it works.

If the polynomial is: Given For instance, if H. Write an algorithm to accomplish this. Devise an algorithm that inputs three integers and outputs them in nondecreasing order. Present an algorithm that searches an unsorted array a. The factorial function 71! Write both a recursive and an iterative algorithm to compute n! Write both a recursive and an iterative algorithm to Compute 7. Write a recursive algorithm for computing this function.

Then write a nonrectlrsive algoritlnn for computing it. The pt'ge m. Assume that the function inputs are 1, 2,. Give an algorithm to solve the following problem: Consider the function F a: Set of 71 elements, the powerset of S is the set of all possible subsets of S.

Write a recursive algorithm to compute powerset S. There are many criteria upon which we can judge an algorithm. For instance: Does it do what we want it to do? These criteria are all vitally important when it comes to writing soft- ware, most especially for large systems.

Though we do not dismiss how to reach these goals, we try to achieve them throughout this book with the pseutlocode algorithms we write.

Hopefully this more subtle approach will gradually infect your own progra. There are other criteria.

The time c: I1Ce evaluation can be loosely divided into two major phases: Space Complexity Algorithm abc Algorithm 1. This part typically includes the in- struction space i. A variable part that consists of the space needed by component vari- ables whose size is dependent on the particular problem instance being solved, the space needed by referenced variables to the extent that this depends on instance characteristics , and the recursion stack space in- sofar as this space depends on the instance cliaracteristics.

When analyzing the space complexity of an algorithm, we concentrate solely on estimating S'p instance characteristics.

For any given problem, we need first to determine which instance characteristics to use to measure the space requirements. This is very problem specific, and we resort to examples to illustrate the various possibilities. Generally speaking, our choices are limited to quantities related to the number and magnitude of the inputs to and outputs from the algorithm. At times, more complex measures of the interrelationships among the data items are used.

Making the assumption that one word is adequate to store the values of each of a, I , c, and the result, we see that the space needed by abc is independent of the instance characteristics. Consequently, Sp instance characteristics 2 G. The space needed by n is one word, since it is of type integer. This is at least n words, since a must be large enough to hold the n elements to be summed.

Horowitz and Sahani, Fundamentals of Computer Algorithms, 2ND Edition

As in the case of Sum, the instances are characterized by n. The recursion stack space includes space for the formal para. Assume that the return address requires only one word of niemory. Each call to RSum requires at least three words including space for the values of n, the return address, and a pointer to a. E] The compile time does not depend on the instance characteristics.

Also, we may assume that a compiled program will be run several times without recompilation. Consequently, we concern ourselves with just the run time of a program. This run time is denoted by tp instance characteristics. Because many of the factors tp depends on are not known at the time a program is conceived, it is reasonable to attempt only to estimate tp.

If we knew the characteristics of tl1e compiler to be used, we could proceed to determine the number of additions, subtractions, multiplications, divisions, compares, loads, stores, and so on, that would be made by the code for P. Obtaining such an exact formula is in itself an impossible task, since the time needed for an addition, subtraction, multiplication, and so on, often depends on the numbers being added, subtracted, multiplied, and so on. The value of tp n for any given 7; can be obtained only experimentally.

The program is typed, compiled, and run on a particular machine. The execution time is physically clocked, and tp n obtained. Even with this experimental approach, one could face difficulties. In a multiuser system, the execution time depends on such factors as system load, the number of other programs running on the computer at the time program P is run, the characteristics of these other programs, and so on.

We can go one Step further and count only the number of program steps. A pmgrarn step is loosely defined as a syntactically or semantically mean- ingful segment of a program that has an execution time that is independent of the instance characteristics.

For example, the entire statement return 1. The number of steps any program statement is assigned depends on the kind of statement.
