**When should we use the recurrence?**

Recurrences Recurrence When should we use the recurrence? When algorithm contains a recursive call to itself, Its running time can often be described by a recurrence.

7
**Recurrences Recurrence - Definition**

Equation or inequality that describes a function in terms of its value on smaller inputs.

8
**Recurrences Recurrence Example if n=1**

Worst-case running time of T(n) could be described by the recurrence Merge-Sort procedure Show that the solution of T(n) = Θ(n log n) if n=1 if n>1

**Recurrences Recurrence Solution method to example**

1) The substitution method guess a bound and prove our guess correct. 2) The recursion-tree method convert the recurrence into a tree whose nodes represent the costs incurred at various level of recursion 3) The master method determining asymptotic bounds for many simple recurrences of the form 범위에 대한 가정을 하고 그 가정이 맞는지 수학적 귀납법을 이용하여 증명하는것입니다. Recurrence를 트리형태로 바꾸고 각 트리레벨에서의 cost를 구한후 이들의 총합을 구함으로써 전체 cost를 구하는 방법입니다. Recurrence 의 기본적인 Form에서 주어진 세가지 경우에 따라 값을 구하는 방법입니다. ( a ≥ 1, b ≥ 1, and f(n) is given function )

**1. Technicalities for abbreviation**

1) assumption of integer The running time T(n) of algorithm is only defined when n is an integer 2) floors / ceilings We often omit floors and ceilings 3) boundary condition The running time of an algorithm on a constant-sized input is a constant that we typically ignore.

14
**2. Recurrence solution methods**

Substitution Method Solution to example 1. guess that the solution is 2. prove that ( c > 0 ) We need to find constant c and n0 to meet the requirement about assumption T(n) ≤ cn lg n ( c>0 ) We using the Mathematical induction to show that our assumption holds for the boundary condition.

**2. Recurrence solution methods**

Substitution Method Solution to example - Find the constant n0 - we can take advantage of asymptotic notation, we can replace base case T(1) ≤ cn lg n T(1) = 1 but, c1 lg1 = 0 - So, we only have to prove T (n) = cn lg n for n ≥ n0 for n (n0 =2) Replace T(1) by T(2) and T(3) as the base cases by letting n0 =2.

Substitution을 마친 가정된 사실보다 증명하고자 하는 Big Oh의 anonymous function 이 더 클경우는 이 추측은 증명이 되는것입니다. 때문에, 상수 b가 1보다 크거나 같고, 상수 c는 충분히 크다는 조건하에 추측한 가정사항은 만족함을 증명할수 있습니다.

Recursion-tree - Definition For come up with good guess, convert the recurrence into a tree that each node represents the cost of a single subproblem somewhere in the set of recursive function invocations. We sum all the per-level costs to determine the total cost of all levels of the recursion Recusion-tree는 좋은 추측을 하기 위햐여 사용하는데, Recurrence를 tree로 변형을 하는데, 이 tree는, recursive function 이 발생하는 부분의 subproblem에 대한 비용으로 node를 표현하는 tree입니다.
