What is Algorithm?

What is need for analysis?

What is complexity?

Types of complexities

Methods of measuring complexity

Algorithm

A clearly specified set of instructions to

solve a problem.

Characteristics:

Input: Zero or more quantities are externally supplied

Definiteness: Each instruction is clear and unambiguous

Finiteness: The algorithm terminates in a finite number

of steps.

Effectiveness: Each instruction must be primitive and

feasible

Output: At least one quantity is produced

Algorithm

Need for analysis

To determine resource consumption

CPU time

Memory space

Compare different methods for

solving the same problem before

actually implementing them and

running the programs.

To find an efficient algorithm

Complexity

algorithm

An algorithm’s performance depends on

internal factors

external factors

External Factors

Quality of the compiler

Size of the input to the algorithm

Internal Factor

of:

• Time required to run

• Space (memory storage)required

to run

Note:

Complexity measures the internal factors (usually more interested in

time than space)

8

Two ways of finding

complexity

Experimental study

Theoretical Analysis

Experimental study

Write a program implementing the

algorithm

Run the program with inputs of varying

size and composition

Get an accurate measure of the actual

running time

Use a method like

System.currentTimeMillis()

Plot the results

Example

a. Sum=0;

for(i=0;i<N;i++)

for(j=0;j<i;j++)

Sum++;

Java Code – Simple Program

import java.io.*;

class for1

{

public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception

{

int N,Sum;

N=10000; // N value to be changed.

Sum=0;

long start=System.currentTimeMillis();

int i,j;

for(i=0;i<N;i++)

for(j=0;j<i;j++)

Sum++;

long end=System.currentTimeMillis();

long time=end-start;

System.out.println(" The start time is : "+start);

System.out.println(" The end time is : "+end);

System.out.println(" The time taken is : "+time);

}

}

Example graph

Time in millisec

Limitations of Experiments

It is necessary to implement the

algorithm, which may be difficult

Results may not be indicative of the

running time on other inputs not included

in the experiment.

In order to compare two algorithms, the

same hardware and software

environments must be used

Experimental data though important is not

sufficient

Theoretical Analysis

Uses a high-level description of the

algorithm instead of an implementation

Characterizes running time as a function of

the input size, n.

Takes into account all possible inputs

Allows us to evaluate the speed of an

algorithm independent of the

hardware/software environment

Space Complexity

The space needed by an algorithm is the

sum of a fixed part and a variable part

Instructions

Simple variables

Fixed size component variables

Space for constants

Etc..

Cont…

Component variables whose size is dependant

on the particular problem instance being

solved

Recursion stack space

Etc..

Time Complexity

The time complexity of a problem is

the number of steps that it takes to solve an

instance of the problem as a function of the

size of the input (usually measured in bits),

using the most efficient algorithm.

The exact number of steps will depend on

exactly what machine or language is being

used.

To avoid that problem, the Asymptotic

notation is generally used.

Asymptotic Notation

of input size n for large n.

Expressed using only the highest-order

term in the expression for the exact

running time.

Example of Asymptotic

Notation

f(n)=1+n+n2

highest term

O(f(n))=O(n2)

Common growth rates

Time complexity Example

O(1) constant Adding to the front of a linked list

O(log N) log Finding an entry in a sorted array

O(N) linear Finding an entry in an unsorted array

O(N log N) n-log-n Sorting n items by ‘divide-and-conquer’

O(N2) quadratic Shortest path between two nodes in a

graph

O(N3) cubic Simultaneous linear equations

O(2N) exponential The Towers of Hanoi problem

Growth rates

O(N2)

O(Nlog N)

Time

better than NlogN

Number of Inputs

Best, average, worst-case

complexity

In some cases, it is important to consider

the best, worst and/or average (or typical)

performance of an algorithm:

E.g., when sorting a list into order, if it is

already in order then the algorithm may

have very little work to do

The worst-case analysis gives a bound for

all possible input (and may be easier to

calculate than the average case)

Comparision of two algorithms

Consider two algorithms, A and B, for solving a

given problem.

TA(n),TB( n) is time complexity of A,B

respectively (where n is a measure of the

problem size. )

One possibility arises if we know the problem

size a priori.

For example, suppose the problem size is n0 and

TA(n0)<TB(n0). Then clearly algorithm A is better than

algorithm B for problem size .

In the general case,

we have no a priori knowledge of the problem size.

Cont..

Limitation:

don't know the problem size beforehand

it is not true that one of the functions is less

than or equal the other over the entire range

of problem sizes.

we consider the asymptotic behavior of

the two functions for very large problem

sizes.

Asymptotic Notations

Big-Oh

Omega

Theta

Small-Oh

Small Omega

Big-Oh Notation (O)

‘c’and ‘k’ such that f(x)<=c.g(x) where

x>k

function

Examples

x=x+1 -- order is 1

fori 1 to n

x=x+y -- order is n

fori 1 to n

for j 1 to n

x=x+y -- order is n2

Time Complexity Vs Space

Complexity

Achieving both is difficult and best case

There is always trade off

If memory available is large

Need not compensate on Time Complexity

If fastness of Execution is not main

concern, Memory available is less

Can’t compensate on space complexity

Example

Size of data = 10 MB

Check if a word is present in the data or

not

Two ways

Better Space Complexity

Better Time Complexity

Contd..

and check one by one

Faster Process but takes a lot of space

memory and check

Slower Process but takes less space

Run these algorithms

For loop

a. Sum=0;

for(i=0;i<N;i++)

for(j=0;j<i*i;j++)

for(k=0;k<j;k++)

Sum++;

different inputs

Example

3. Conditional Statements

Sum=0;

for(i=1;i<N;i++)

for(j=1;j<i*i;j++)

if(j%i==0)

for(k=0;k<j;k++)

Sum++;

for different inputs

Summary

Analysis of algorithms

Complexity

Even with High Speed Processor and large

memory ,Asymptotically low algorithm is

not efficient

Trade Off between Time Complexity and

Space Complexity
