3 Analysis of algorithms The theoretical study of computer-program performance and resource usage. Whats more important than performance? modularity correctness maintainability functionality robustness user-friendliness programmer time simplicity extensibility reliability September 7, 2005 Copyright © Erik D. Demaine and Charles E. Leiserson Introduction to Algorithms L1.3

4 Why study algorithms and performance? Algorithms help us to understand scalability. Performance often draws the line between what is feasible and what is impossible. Algorithmic mathematics provides a language for talking about program behavior. Performance is the currency of computing. The lessons of program performance generalize to other computing resources. Speed is fun! September 7, 2005 Copyright © Erik D. Demaine and Charles E. Leiserson Introduction to Algorithms L1.4

5 The problem of sorting Input: sequence a 1, a 2, …, a n of numbers. Output: permutation a' 1, a' 2, …, a' n Such that a' 1 a' 2 …a' n. Example: Input: Output: September 7, 2005L1.5 Copyright © Erik D. Demaine and Charles E. Leiserson Introduction to Algorithms

19 Running time The running time depends on the input: an already sorted sequence is easier to sort. Parameterize the running time by the size of the input, since short sequences are easier to sort than long ones. Generally, we seek upper bounds on the running time, because everybody likes a guarantee. Copyright © Erik D. Demaine and Charles E. Leiserson Introduction to Algorithms September 7, 2005L1.19

20 Kinds of analyses Worst-case: (usually) T(n) =maximum time of algorithm on any input of size n. Average-case: (sometimes) T(n) =expected time of algorithm over all inputs of size n. Need assumption of statistical distribution of inputs. Best-case: (bogus) Cheat with a slow algorithm that works fast on some input. Copyright © Erik D. Demaine and Charles E. Leiserson Introduction to Algorithms September 7, 2005L1.20

21 Asymptotic Analysis Machine-independent time What is insertion sorts worst-case time? It depends on the speed of our computer: relative speed (on the same machine), absolute speed (on different machines). BIG IDEA: Ignore machine-dependent constants. Look at growth of T(n) as n. Asymptotic Analysis Copyright © Erik D. Demaine and Charles E. Leiserson Introduction to Algorithms September 7, 2005L1.21

22 Θ-notation Math: Θ(g(n)) = { f (n): there exist positive constants c 1, c 2, and n 0 such that 0 c 1 g(n) f (n) c 2 g(n) for all nn 0 } Engineering: Drop low-order terms; ignore leading constants. Example: 3n n 2 –5n = Θ(n 3 ) Copyright © Erik D. Demaine and Charles E. Leiserson Introduction to Algorithms September 7, 2005L1.22

23 Asymptotic performance When n gets large enough, a Θ(n 2 )algorithm always beats a Θ(n 3 )algorithm. Copyright © Erik D. Demaine and Charles E. Leiserson Introduction to Algorithms September 7, 2005L1.23 We shouldnt ignore asymptotically slower algorithms, however. Real-world design situations often call for a careful balancing of engineering objectives. Asymptotic analysis is a useful tool to help to structure our thinking. T(n) n n0n0

24 Insertion sort analysis Worst case: Input reverse sorted. [arithmetic series ] Average case: All permutations equally likely. Is insertion sort a fast sorting algorithm? Moderately so, for small n. Not at all, for large n. Copyright © Erik D. Demaine and Charles E. Leiserson Introduction to Algorithms September 7, 2005L1.24

25 Merge sort MERGE-SORT A[1.. n] 1.If n= 1, done. 2.Recursively sort A[ 1...n/2.]and A[ [n/2]+1.. n ]. 3.Merge the 2 sorted lists. Key subroutine: MERGE Copyright © Erik D. Demaine and Charles E. Leiserson Introduction to Algorithms September 7, 2005L1.25

39 Analyzing merge sort Copyright © Erik D. Demaine and Charles E. Leiserson Introduction to Algorithms September 7, 2005L1.38 MERGE-SORTA[1.. n] 1.If n= 1, done. 2.Recursively sort A[ 1.. n/2 ] and A[ n/ n ]. 3.Mergethe 2sorted lists Sloppiness: Should be T( n/2 ) + T( n/2 ), but it turns out not to matter asymptotically.

40 Recurrence for merge sort We shall usually omit stating the base case when T(n) = Θ(1) for sufficiently small n, but only when it has no effect on the asymptotic solution to the recurrence. CLRS and Lecture 2 provide several ways to find a good upper bound on T(n). Copyright © Erik D. Demaine and Charles E.

52 Conclusions Θ(n lg n) grows more slowly than Θ(n 2 ). Therefore, merge sort asymptotically beats insertion sort in the worst case. In practice, merge sort beats insertion sort for n> 30 or so.
