 Author JNEC, Aurangabad


It is my great pleasure to present this laboratory manual for Final Year engineering students for the subject of Advanced Algorithm keeping in view the vast coverage required to create analytical skills, to enable the students to design algorithms and to analyze the algorithm.

As a student, many of you may be wondering with some of the questions in your mind regarding the subject and exactly what has been tried is to answer through this manual.

As you may be aware that MGM has already been awarded with ISO 9000 certification and it is our endure to technically equip our students taking the advantage of the procedural aspects of ISO 9000 Certification.

Faculty members are also advised that covering these aspects in initial stage itself, will greatly relived them in future as much of the load will be taken care by the enthusiasm energies of the students once they are conceptually clear.

This manual is intended for the Final Year students of Computer Science and Engineering in the subject of Advanced Algorithm. This manual typically contains practical/Lab Sessions related Advanced Algorithm implemented in C covering various aspects related the subject to enhanced understanding.

As per the syllabus along with Study of Java Language, we have made the efforts to cover various aspects of Advanced Algorithm covering different Techniques used to construct and understand concepts of Advanced Algorithm.

Students are advised to thoroughly go though this manual rather than only topics mentioned in the syllabus as practical aspects are the key to understanding and conceptual visualization of theoretical aspects covered in the books.

Good Luck for your Enjoyable Laboratory Sessions

The most well known FFT algorithms depend upon the factorization of N.result in only O(N log N) operations. The difference in speed can be substantial. but (contrary to popular misconception) there are FFTs with O(N log N) complexity for all N. Many FFT algorithms only depend on the fact that is an Nth primitive root of unity. Since the inverse DFT is the same as the DFT. but with the opposite sign in the exponent and a 1/N factor. FFTs are of great importance to a wide variety of applications. any FFT algorithm can easily be adapted for it data. and the improvement is roughly proportional to N/log(N). from digital signal processing and solving partial differential equations to algorithms for quick multiplication of large integers. the computation time can be reduced by several orders of magnitude in such cases. especially for long data sets where N may be in the thousands or millions—in practice. This huge improvement made many DFT-based algorithms practical. even for prime N.txt file is as follows 24 . such as number-theoretic transforms. and thus can be applied to analogous transforms over any finite field.

Intractable (non-computable) problems (I) There is a very large and important class of problems that 0. Exponential problems (E) 3. Definition 2 of NP: A problem is said to be NP if 1. where u(n) goes to infinity as n goes to infinity.8. we don't know how to solve polynomially. Clearly. P is a subset of NP A very famous open question in Computer Science: 30 . we know how to solve exponentially. II. and 2. For those who are not familiar with Turing machines. it takes polynomial time to verify the correctness of a candidate solution Remark: It is much easier and faster to "grade" a solution than to find a solution from scratch. its solution comes from a finite set of possibilities. Introduction      A problem is said to be polynomial if there exists an algorithm that solves the problem in time T(n)=O(nc). 1. Polynomial problems (P) 2. where c is a constant. two alternative definitions of NP will be developed. Examples of polynomial problems: 2 o Sorting: O(n log n) = O(n ) 3 o All-pairs shortest path: O(n ) 2 o Minimum spanning tree: O(E log E)= O(E ) A problem is said to be exponential if no polynomial-time algorithm can be developed for it and if we can find an algorithm that solves it in O(nu(n)). and 2. The world of computation can be subdivided into three classes: 1. we don't know if they can be solved polynomially at all This class is a gray area between the P-class and the E-class. Definition of NP        Definition 1 of NP: A problem is said to be Nondeterministically Polynomial (NP) if we can find a nodeterminsitic Turing machine that can solve the problem in a polynomial number of nondeterministic moves.Study of Np-Complete theory Aim: To Study Np-Complete Theory I.

The first stage is a guessing stage that uses choose() to find a solution to the problem. An NP algorithm is an algorithm that has 2 stages: 1. choose(i) returns mere "garbage". Definition 3 of NP: A problem is said to be NP if there exists an NP algorithm for it. we introduce an imaginary. Input: A graph G 2. if a problem has no solution. The second stage checks the correctness of the solution produced by the first stage. Example of an NP problem: The Hamiltonian Cycle (HC) problem 1. if a problem has a solution of N components.

but restricts the clauses to at most three schematic letters each: 38 . since the sum of two polynomials is itself a polynomial. suppose I is a negative instance of D. This means that there is a certificate c such that when M is run with inputs c. We know we can convert it into SAT in polynomial time. SP(n)01. This means that if we find a way of solving SAT in polynomial time. It is thus clear that the procedure for setting up these clauses. since many frequently encountered problems which are so far believed to be intractable are NP. which have been proved to be NP-complete. By the P(n)th step. TP(n)0. Conversely. Suppose SAT can be converted to problem D in polynomial time.1 of the tape. in polynomial time. SAT was the first NP-complete problem to be recognised as such (the theory of NP-completeness having come into existence with the proof of Cook’s Theorem). Hence those clauses constitute a positive instance of SAT. a set of clauses whichconstitute a positive instance of SAT if and only I is a positive instance of D. I. they depend only on the machine and do not vary with the problem instance. This is expressed by the three clauses QP(n)0. We must now show that we have succeeded in converting D into SAT. and hence constitutes a negative instance of SAT. we have converted D into SAT in polynomial time. which means that whatever symbols are placed on squares P(n). Suppose first that I is a positive instance of D. can be accomplished in polynomial time. Thus from the instance I of problem D we have constructed. but it is by no means the only one. This would have huge practical repercussions. Now take any NP problem D0. In order to prove that an NP problem is NP-complete. There are now literally thousands of problems. it will halt scanning symbol a1 on square 0. In other words.10.This special property of SAT is called NP-completeness. The result of these two conversions is a polynomial-time conversion of D0 into D. the machine has reached the halt state. Altogether the number of literals involved in these clauses is O(P(n)3) (in working this out. all that is needed is to show that SAT can be converted into it in polynomial time. and we know we can convert SAT into D in polynomial time. it follows that D is NP-complete. thus they do not contribute to the growth of the the number of literals with increasing problem size. NP-completeness Cook’s Theorem implies that any NP problem is at most polynomially harder than SAT. note that q and s are constants.1 of the tape so that all the clauses above are satisfied. This problem is similar to SAT. given the original machine M and the instance I of problem D. which contains the symbol a1. In that case there is no certificate for I. which is what the O notation captures for us). This means that there is some sequence of symbols that can be placed initially on squares P(n). The reason for this is that the sequential composition of two polynomial time algorithms is itself a polynomial-time algorithm. : : : . and is then scanning square 0. we will then be in a position to solve any NP problem in polynomial time. We illustrate this by showing that the problem 3SAT is NP-complete. cropping up in many different areas of computing. Since D0 was an arbitrary NP problem. that is. when the computation halts the machine will not be scanning a1 on square 0. A decision problem is NP-complete if it has the property that any NP problem can be converted into it in polynomial time. giving another 3 literals. This means that the set of clauses above is not satisfiable. : : : . And since D was an arbitrary NP problem it follows that any NP problem can be converted to SAT in polynomial time.

all NP-complete problems agree to within some polynomial amount of difference. P=NP? We have seen that a problem is NP-complete if and only if it is NP and any NP problem can be converted into it in polynomial time. It turns out to be straightforward to convert an arbitrary instance of SAT into an instance of 3SAT with the same satisfiability property. like SAT.Given a finite set fC1. so either Ln1 or Ln is true. Then all the clauses in C are satisfied: for i = 1.Ln2 are all false. and D2 can be converted into D1 by virtue of the fact that D2 is NP and D1 is NP-hard. : : : . which is NP). (A problem satisfying the second condition is called NP-hard. each of which contains at most three schematic letters. and hence C is true.Xn3. so NP-complete means NP and NP-hard. and for j = k. in particular Xn3 is true. Then it satisfies at least one of the literals appearing in C. But what is the computational complexity of these problems? If any one NP-complete problem can be shown to be of polynomial complexity. 3SAT is obviously NP (since it is a special case of SAT. Conversely.C2. We replace this by n 2 new clauses. : : : . the(k 1)th clause is satisfied because Lk is true. as follows: L1 _ L2 _ X1 X1 ! L3 _ X2 X2 ! L4 _ X3 . : : : . Thus in any event at least one of the Li is true. Now assign true to X1. Take any clause written in disjunctive form as C _ L1 _ L2 _ : : : _ Ln. If we take an instance of SAT and replace all the clauses containing more than three literals by clausescontaining exactly three in the way described above.X2. Then it is easy to see that all the Xi must be true. the ith clause is satisfied because Xi is true. k + 1. All NP-complete problems stand or fall together. 2.) It follows from this that all NP-complete problems are mutually interconvertible in polynomial time. Thus as far as computational complexity is concerned. is NP-complete. say Lk. then D1 can be converted into D2 by virtue of the fact that D1 is NP and D2 is NP-hard. Xn4 ! Ln2 _ Xn3 Xn3 ! Ln1 _ Ln Call the new set of clauses C.. we end up with an instance of 3SAT which is satisfiable if and only if the original instance is satisfiable. then by the above.Xk2 and false to Xk1. Moreover. : : : . the conversion can be accomplished in polynomial time. Any truth-assignment to the schematic letters appearing in the Li which satisfies C can be extended to the Xi so that C is satisfied. suppose that a certain truth-assignment satisfies C. n 2 the jth clause is satisfied because Xj1 (appearing in the antecedent) is false.. k 2. For if D1 and D2 are both NP-complete. If on the other hand any one NPcomplete problem can be shown not to be solvable in polynomial time. : : : . determine whether there is an assignment of truth-values to the schematic letters appearing in the clauses which makes all the clauses true. and conversely any truth-assignment which satisfies C also satisfies C. 39 . then by the above they all are. It follows that 3SAT.Cng of clauses. Suppose L1. To prove this. : : : . using n 3 new schematic letters X1. where n > 3 and each Li is a literal. suppose we have a truth-assignment satisfying C: each clause in C is satisfied. : : : .Xn3. none of them are so solvable.

then it may be that a new generation of computers will have exactly such abilities. the Turing model of computation. what would happen is that the theory of Turing-equivalent computation would suddenly become much less relevant to practical computing concerns. but there is no NP-complete problem for which any algorithm is known that runs in less than exponential time. of course. that is. If we could solve NP-complete problems in polynomial time. then the whole class NP would collapse down into the class P of problems solvable in polynomial time. This is because the NP-complete problems are the hardest of all NP problems. NP-complete problems are strictly harder than polynomial problems. if we had access to unlimited parallelism. and if they are polynomial then all NP problems are polynomial. All this assumes. we could solve any NP problem (including therefore the NPcomplete problems) in polynomial time.The current state of our knowledge is this: we know how to solve NP-complete problems in exponential time. However. of course. as suggested above. It would not solve the classic P=NP question. because that question concerns the properties of Turing-equivalent computation. Most people who have an opinion on this believe that the answer is no. Existing computers do not provide us with such parallelism. This implies. but if the current work on Quantum Computation comes to fruition. which applies to all existing computers. making the question only of theoretical interest. no-one has ever succeeded in proving that it is not possible to solve an NP-complete problem faster than that. and if that happens. Conclusion: Thus we have studied Cook’s Theorem 40 . of course. then everything changes. Thus the question of whether or not there are polynomial algorithms for NP-complete problems has become known as the “P=NP?” problem. On the other hand. that no-one has proved that NP-complete problems can’t be solved in polynomial time.

is that one can generate circuits from a sorting algorithm. and are output on the wires on the right. In this case: 42 .In fact. Repeating this inner loop.The surprising thing. we get the following sorting network: Alternative way of drawing it: Q: How much time does it take for this circuit to sort the n numbers? Running time = how many time clocks we have to wait till the result stabilizes.The inputs come on the wires on the left. consider the following circuit: Q: What does this circuit does? A: This is the inner loop of insertion sort. The largest number is output on the bottom line.

Proof: Consider a single comparator with inputs x. 3 The Zero-One Principle The zero-one principle: If a comparison network sort correctly all binary inputs (i. the output is monotonically sorted. . . . The running time of a sorting network is just its depth. y. d2). The size of a sorting network is the number of gates in the sorting network. then for any monotonically increasing function f . we get: Lemma 1 Insertion sort requires 2n − 1 time units to sort n numbers. ani into the output sequence b = hb1. . . A comparison network is a DAG (directed acyclic graph). a2. every number is either 0 or 1) then it sorts correctly all inputs. with n inputs and n outputs. . f(an)i into the sequence f(b) = hf(b1). y) and y0 = max(x. . If f(x) = f(y) then the claim trivially holds for this comparator. (Note that a comparison Definition 2.e. .3 A sorting network is a comparison network such that for any input. f(bn)i.2 The depth of a wire is 0 at the input.In general. y)) 43 . the network transforms the input sequence f(a) = hf(a1). For a gate with two inputs of depth d1 and d2 the depth of the output is 1 + max(d1. . The depth of a comparison network is the maximum depth of an output wire. b2. .

51 . The assessment is done according to the directives of the Principal/ VicePrincipal/ Dean Academics. The marking patterns should be justifiable to the students without any ambiguity and teacher should see that students are faced with unjust circumstances. It is a wrong approach or concept to award the students by way of easy marking to get cheap popularity among the students to which they do not deserve. It is a primary responsibility of the teacher that right students who are really putting up lot of hard work with right kind of intelligence are correctly awarded.Possible Question on Advanced Algorithm: VIVA VOCE QUESTIONS 1)Define and state the importance of sub algorithm in computation and its relation ship with main algorithm? 2) Give the difference of format between an algorithm and a sub algorithm? 3) What is the general algorithm model for any recursive procedure? 4)State recursion and its different types? 5)Explain the depth of recursion? 6)State the problems which differentiate between recursive procedure and non-recursive procedure? 7)what is the complexity of fft? 8)what is mean by modular arithmetic? 9)What is chinese Remainder theorem? 10)What is mean by NP-Complete and NP-Hard? 11)Differentiate between NP-Complete and NP-Hard 12)Differentiate between deterministic and non deterministic algorithm 13)What mean by algorithm? 14)what are different techniques to solve the given problem 15)Explain Knapsack Problem 16)What is mean by dynamic programming 17)Explain the Greedy method 18)What is mean by Time Complexity? 19)What is mean by Space Complexity? 20)What is Asymptotic Notation?
