CSC 201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms Lecture 04: Time complexity analysis in form of Big-Oh Dr.Surasak Mungsing E-mail: [email protected] Apr-15 1 Big-Oh Notation Big-Oh was introduced for functions’ growth rate comparison in 1927 based on asymptotic behavior Big-Oh notation characterizes functions according to their growth rates: different functions with the same growth rate may be represented using the same O notation. A description of a function in terms of big-Oh notation usually only provides an upper bound on the growth rate of the function. 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 2 Upper Bound In general a function f(n) is O(g(n)) if positive constants c and n0 such that f(n) c g(n) n n0 e.g. if f(n)=1000n and g(n)=n2, n0 > 1000 and c = 1 then f(n0) < 1.g(n0) and we say that f(n) = O(g(n)) The O notation indicates 'bounded above by a constant multiple of.' 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 3 Big-Oh, the Asymptotic Upper Bound Because big O notation discards multiplicative constants on the running time, and ignores efficiency for low input sizes, it does not always reveal the fastest algorithm in practice or for practically-sized data sets, but the approach is still very effective for comparing the scalability of various algorithms as input sizes become large. If an algorithm‘s time complexity is in the order of O(n2) then it’s growth rate of computation time will not be faster than a quadratic function for input that is large enough Some upper bounds may be too broad, for example saying that 2n2 = O(n3) By definition if c = 1 and n0 = 2, it is better to say that 2n2 = O(n2) 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 4 Example 1 For all n>6, g(n) > 1 f(n). f (n) is in big-O of g(n) then, f(n) is in O(g(n)). 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 5 Example 2 There exists n0 such that for all n>n0, If f(n) < 1 g(n) then f(n) is in O(g(n)) 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 6 Example 3 There exists n0=5, c=3.5, for all n>n0, if f(n) < c h(n) then f(n) is in O(h(n)). 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 7 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 8 Exercise on O-notation Show that f(n)=3n2+2n+5 is in O(n2) 10 n2 = 3n2 + 2n2 + 5n2 3n2 + 2n + 5 f(n) for n 1 or f(n) ≤10 n2 consider c = 10, n0 = 1 f(n) ≤c g(n2 ) for n n0 then f(n) is in O(n2) 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 9 Usage of Big-Oh We should always write Big-Oh in the most simple form e.g. 3n2+2n+5 = O(n2) It is not wrong to write these functions in term of Big-Oh as below, but the most appropriate form should be in the most simple form • 3n2+2n+5 = O(3n2+2n+5) • 3n2+2n+5 = O(n2+n) • 3n2+2n+5 = O(3n2) 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 10 Exercise on O-notation 8-Apr-15 f1(n) = 10 n + 25 n2 f2(n) = 20 n log n + 5 n f3(n) = 12 n log n + 0.05 n2 f4(n) = n1/2 + 3 n log n • • • • O(n2) O(n log n) O(n2) O(n log n) CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 11 Classification of Function : BIG-Oh A function f(n) is said to be of at most logarithmic growth if f(n) = O(log n) A function f(n) is said to be of at most quadratic growth if f(n) = O(n2) A function f(n) is said to be of at most polynomial growth if f(n) = O(nk), for some natural number k > 1 A function f(n) is said to be of at most exponential growth if there is a constant c, such that f(n) = O(cn), and c > 1 A function f(n) is said to be of at most factorial growth if f(n) = O(n!). 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 12 Classification of Function : BIG-Oh (cont.) A function f(n) is said to have constant running time if the size of the input n has no effect on the running time of the algorithm (e.g., assignment of a value to a variable). The equation for this algorithm is f(n) = c Other logarithmic classifications: f(n) = O(n log n) f(n) = O(log log n) 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 13 Big O Fact A polynomial of degree k is O(nk) Proof: ถ้า และให้ ดังนั้น 8-Apr-15 f(n) = bknk + bk-1nk-1 + … + b1n + b0 ai = | b i | f(n) aknk + ak-1nk-1 + … + a1n + a0 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 14 Some Rules Transitivity f(n) = O(g(n)) and g(n) = O(h(n)) f(n) = O(h(n)) Addition f(n) + g(n) = O(max { f(n) ,g(n)}) Polynomials a0 + a1n + … + adnd = O(nd) Heirachy of functions n + log n = O(n); 8-Apr-15 2n + n3 = O(2n) CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 15 Some Rules Base of Logs ignored logan = O(logbn) Power inside logs ignored log(n2) = O(log n) Base and powers in exponents not ignored 3n is not O(2n) a(n)2 is not O(an) 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 16 Big-Oh Complexity O(1) The cost of applying the algorithm can be bounded independently of the value of n. This is called constant complexity. O(log n) The cost of applying the algorithm to problems of sufficiently large size n can be bounded by a function of the form k log n, where k is a fixed constant. This is called logarithmic complexity. O(n) linear complexity O(n log n) n lg n complexity O(n2) quadratic complexity 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 17 Big-Oh Complexity (cont.)

For Loops Running time of a for-loop is at most the running time of the statements inside the forloop times number of iterations for (i = sum = 0; i < n; i++) sum += a[i]; for loop iterates n times, executes 2 assignment statements each iteration ==> asymptotic complexity of O(n) 8-Apr-15 CSC201 Analysis and Design of Algorithms 26 General Rules for Analysis(4) 4.
