2 Beyond Worst Case Analysis Worst-case analysis. n Analyze running time as function of worst input of a given size. Average case analysis. n Analyze average running time over some distribution of inputs. n Ex: quicksort. Amortized analysis. n Worst-case bound on sequence of operations. n Ex: splay trees, union-find. Competitive analysis. n Make quantitative statements about online algorithms. n Ex: paging, load balancing.

3 Online Algorithm and Competitive Analysis Paging problem: Given two-level store consisting of fast memory (cache) that can hold k pages, and slow memory that can store infinitely many pages. n Sequence of page requests p: – if page p already in cache, no cost incurred – otherwise, eject some other page q from cache and replace with p, and pay unit cost for page fault. n If p not in cache, which page q should you evict? n Most fundamental and practically important online problem in CS.

4 Online Algorithm and Competitive Analysis Competitive analysis. (Sleator-Tarjan) n Algorithm A is -competitive if there exists some constant b such that for every sequence of inputs : where OPT is optimal offline algorithm. n OPT = MIN: evict page whose next access is furthest away. n A = LRU: evict page whose most recent access was earliest Traditional analysis completely uninformative. We show LRU is k-competitive. n A = LIFO: evict page brought in most recently. LIFO can have arbitrarily bad competitive ratio. n Fact: no online paging algorithm is better than k-competitive.

5 Online Algorithm and Competitive Analysis Theorem. LRU is k-competitive. Proof: Let be a subsequence of on which LRU faults exactly k times, and does not contain fist access in . Let p denote page requested just before . n Case 1: LRU faults in sequence on p. – requests at least k+1 different pages MIN faults at least once n Case 2: LRU faults on some page, say q, at least twice in . – requests at least k+1 different pages MIN faults at least once

6 Online Algorithm and Competitive Analysis Theorem. LRU is k-competitive. Proof: Let be a subsequence of on which LRU faults exactly k times, and does not contain fist access in . Let p denote page requested just before . n Case 3: LRU does not fault on p, nor on any page more than once. – k different pages are accessed and faulted on, none of which is p – p is in MIN's cache at start of MIN faults at least once 00 11 22... 11 pp :: LRU faults k times MIN faults 1 times LRU faults k times
