Execution times? Number of statements executed? Ideal Solution? Let us assume that we expressed running time of given algorithm as a function of the input size i.

We can compare these different functions corresponding to running times and this kind of comparison is independent of machine time, programming style, etc..

What is Rate of Growth? The rate at which the running time increases as a function of input is called.

Let us assume that you went to a shop for downloading a car and a cycle. If your friend sees you there and asks what you are downloading then in general we say This is because cost of car is too big compared to cost of cycle approximating the cost of cycle to cost of car.

## Data Structures and Algorithms Made Easy

As an example in the below case, , , and are the individual costs of some function and we approximate it to. Since, is the highest rate of growth. Commonly used Rate of Growths Below diagram shows the relationship between different rates of growth.

We have already seen that an algorithm can be represented in the form of an expression. That means we represent the algorithm with multiple expressions: In general the first case is called the best case and second case is called the worst case for the algorithm.

There are three types of analysis: Average case o Provides a prediction about the running time of the algorithm o Assumes that the input is random For a given algorithm, we can represent best case, worst case, and average case analysis in the form of expressions.

As an example, let be the function which represents the given algorithm. The expression defines the inputs with which the algorithm takes the average running time or memory. Asymptotic Notation? Having the expressions for best case, average case and worst case, for all the three cases we need to identify the upper bound, lower bounds.

In order to represent these upper bound and lower bounds we need some syntax and that is the subject of following discussion. Let us assume that the given algorithm is represented in the form of function. Big-O Notation This notation gives the upper bound of the given function.

Generally we represent it as. That means, at larger values of , the upper bound of is. For example, if is the given algorithm, then is. That means gives the maximum rate of growth for at larger values of.

Let us see the notation with little more detail. Our objective is to give smallest rate of growth which is greater than or equal to given algorithms rate of growth.

In general, we discard lower values of. That means the rate of growth at lower values of is not important. In the below figure, is the point from which we need to consider the rate of growths for a given algorithm. Below the rate of growths could be different. Rate of Growth Input Size, Big-O Visualization is the set of functions with smaller or same order of growth as For example, includes etc..

Analyze the algorithms at larger values of only. What this means is, below we do not care for rate of growth.

There is no unique set of values for and in proving the asymptotic bounds. Let us consider, For this function there are multiple and values possible. That means, at larger values of , the tighter lower bound of is For example, if , is The notation can be defined as there exist positive constants and such that for all is an asymptotic tight lower bound for Our objective is to give largest rate of growth which is less than or equal to given algorithms rate of growth.

Such that: The average running time of algorithm is always between lower bound and upper bound. If the upper bound and lower bound gives the same result then notation will also have the same rate of growth. As an example, let us assume that is the expression. Then, its tight upper bound is. The rate of growth in best case is.

In this case, rate of growths in best case and worst are same. As a result, the average case will also be same. For a given function algorithm , if the rate of growths bounds for and are not same then the rate of growth case may not be same.

Rate of Growth Input Size, Now consider the definition of notation. It is defined as there exist positive constants and such that for all. From the above examples, it should also be clear that, for a given function algorithm getting upper bound and lower bound and average running time may not be possible always. For example, if we are discussing the best case of an algorithm, then we try to give upper bound and lower bound and average running time.

In the remaining chapters we generally concentrate on upper bound because knowing lower bound of an algorithm is of no practical importance and we use notation if upper bound and lower bound are same. Why is it called Asymptotic Analysis?

## Thiago Eduardo Silva

From the above discussion for all the three notations: That means, is also a curve which approximates at higher values of. In mathematics we call such curve as. In other terms, is the asymptotic curve for For this reason, we call algorithm analysis as.

Guidelines for Asymptotic Analysis? There are some general rules to help us in determining the running time of an algorithm. Below are few of them. The running time of a loop is, at most, the running time of the statements inside the loop including tests multiplied by the number of iterations. Analyze from inside out. Total running time is the product of the sizes of all the loops. Add the time complexities of each statement.

Worst-case running time: An algorithm is if it takes a constant time to cut the problem size by a fraction usually by. As an example let us consider the following program: Initially in next step and in subsequent steps and so on. Let us assume that the loop is executing some times.

I would like to express my gratitude to all of the people who provided support, talked things over, read, wrote, offered comments, allowed me to quote their remarks and assisted in the editing, proofreading and design. I know many people typically do not read the Preface of a book. But I strongly recommend that you read this particular Preface. It is not the main objective of this book to present you with the theorems and proofs on data structures and algorithms.

I have followed a pattern of improving the problem solutions with different complexities for each problem, you will find multiple solutions with different, and reduced, complexities. With this approach, even if you get a new question, it will show you a way to think about the possible solutions. You will find this book useful for interview preparation, competitive exams preparation, and campus interview preparations.

As a job seeker, if you read the complete book, I am sure you will be able to challenge the interviewers. This book is also useful for Engineering degree students and Masters degree students during their academic preparations. In all the chapters you will see that there is more emphasis on problems and their analysis rather than on theory. In each chapter, you will first read about the basic required theory, which is then followed by a section on problem sets. In total, there are approximately algorithmic problems, all with solutions.

What about the performance? What if you and your girlfriend share the same cloud account and are trying to play the same video from different devices?

Now you have thought through the design well, have come up with different data structures to use with pros and cons in mind.

While implementing, you must take care of corner cases. You must be aware about the integer overflow issue in Youtube video view count. While implementing, they never really thought that the view count can exceed what an integer variable can hold and BOOM, the view count cycled back to zero. Before a feature goes live, it must be tested well. It is good to practice some test questions as well.

How will you test a Insert image feature in MS Word? What about a cut-copy-paste feature? How will you test Temple Run game? Try to write all the possible test cases and how you are going to handle this in your code.

Writing a robust code is very important. If you take care of these things at an earlier stage, you can avoid silly bugs and boost your chances of getting selected in interviews. What else? Have a sound understanding of Operating System. The dinosaur book by Galvin is a good read. Know how networking works and have insights on DBMS. Resume building First impression is the best.

Resume is the first thing that HR will use to decide whether to call you for interview or not. And they have got hundreds of them. So they will usually scan it for 20 seconds to 2 minutes. It should be clean, concise and elegant. Each word mentioned should worth the space it eats.

The rule of thumb is if you have less than one year of experience, the size of resume should not exceed a page with few exceptions. Few points to note: Maintain a header to fit info like name, email id, address and contact number Mention level of expertise corresponding to each language.

Example: Proficient in C and good at Java If you are mentioning a project, write your key learning, impact in the team and. This will show that you built something that is being used by people. Guess what, this is what companies do, building a product, stabilizing it as per user feedback, taking in new feature requests and so on. How to apply for Microsoft? I get many messages asking me for a favour to refer them.

When I ask them how much comfortable they are with DS and Algos, they say good enough.

## Editorial Reviews

Then I rephrase my question to how do they feel when they solve interview experiences at GeeksforGeeks. This is not a surprise. GeeksforGeeks is still growing. Please do NOT do that. Dreaming is good, but it will come true only when you work towards making it a reality.

If you are not able to clear the interviews, you will have wait again for months depending on the company policy before you can apply again. Referral usually bumps chances of getting an interview call because your resume gets to the system through a person Microsoft trusts to be a good engineer.In other words, we enumerated possible solutions.

That problem can be anything starting from a simple puzzle to implementing a user scenario.

## Meet the team

His review gave me the confidence in the quality of the book. It is recommended that the reader does at least one complete reading of this book to gain a full understanding of all the topics that are covered.

Even though many readings have been done for the purpose of correcting errors, there could still be some minor typos in the book. Algorithm analysis helps us determining which of them is efficient in terms of time and space consumed. Problem Write a recursive function for the running time of the function function, whose code is below.
