Mathematical Model Informal algorithm Abstract Data Type 

(ADT) Pseudo LanguagCode Data Structure (DS) Program (CProgram) 

progra1) Model the problem using an appropriate mathematic model (Informal algorithm

2) The informal algorithm is written in pseudo language 

3) The stepwise refinement of pseudo language gives various types of data used and Operations to be performed on data. (i.e., data type

4) We create ADT for each data type. 

5) We choose an appropriate Data Strucure to implement eachzADI 

6) Finally replace informal statements in pseudo language code by Ccode 

An algorithm is a finite sequence of computational steps that transform the input into the output in finite number of steps 

A data type is a collection of objects and a set of operations that act on those objects 

An abstract data type (ADT) is a data type, that is organized in such a way that the specification of the objects and the operations on the objects is separated from the representation of the objects and the implementation of the operation. ADT is mathematical model of data type 

A data structure(DS) is a way to store and organize data in order to facilitate access and modifications. No single data structure works well for all purposes, and so it is important to know the strengths and limitations of several of them. We use DS to implement ADT

Pseudo code: Mixture of natural language and high level programming language constructs that describes algorithm 

A program is an expression of an algorithm in a programming languag

  2. 1. NonComputational problem 

A problem that has no precise and simple specification Example: Convince your boss for salary hike; convince your faculty for marks

  1. 2. Computational problem 

Specification of input 

Specification output as function of input 

Example: The sorting problem

Input: a sequence <al, a2......,an> of n numbers. Output: a permutation <al, a2,..., an > of the input with al <= a2 <= .... <= an


  1. 3. Algorithm Definition 

An Algorithm is welldefined computational procedure that takes some value, or set of values as input and produces some value, or set of values as output

Instance: A particular input called an instance of a computational problema Example: The input sequence <31, 41, 59, 26, 41 58> is an instance of the sorting problem

  1. 4. Algorithm Characteristics 

All algorithms should satisfy the following criteria. Input: Zero or more quantities are externally supplied. A Output: At least one quantityis, produced. Definiteness: Each instruction is clear and unambiguous. Finiteness: For all cases, the algorithm terminates after a finite number or steps. Effectiveness: instruction is basic enough to be carried out

Definition: Algorithms that are definite and effective are called computational procedures Example: Digital computer

Definition: An algorithm is said to þe correct if, for every input instance, it halts with the correct output

  1. 5. The study of Algorithm includes the followingimportant areas 

Design an algorithm: Creating and algorithm is an art which may never be fully automated, Different design strategies: Divide and Conquer, Greedy, Dynamic programming....etc. Express an algorithm: Algorithm specification using Pseudo code. Validate an algorithm (correctness): To show that algorithm computes the correct answer for all possible legal inputs, Analysis an algorithm: Find the time and space complexity. Prove that we cannot solve the problem any faster using asymptotic analysis Implementation : Implementing algorithm in a programming language Verification :Test the program (debugging and profiling

  2. 1. Performance evaluation 

As an algorithm is executed, it uses the computers CPU to perform operations and its memory to hold the program and data. An efficient algorithm 

needs less running time 

  • uses less space 1.1. Space Complexity: The space complexity of an algorithm is the amount of memory if 

needs to run to completion. 1.2. Time Complexity: The time complexity of an algorithm is the amount of computer time it 

needs to run to completion. 1.3. Performance evaluation of an algorithm refers to the task of computing space and time 

complexity of an algorithm 1.4 Performance evaluation can be loosely divided into two major phases

1) a priority estimates (Performance Analysis

1 Uses analytical methods 

  • Machine independent 


2). a posterior testing (Performance Measurement or profiling)

. It is the process of executing a correct program on data sets and measuring time 

and space it takes to compute results 

1 Machine dependent Performance Analysis is general methodology because 

  • It uses high level description of an algorithm (Pseudocode

All possible input instances are taken into account 

  • Machine independent 
  1. 2. Space complexity 

2.1 Components of space complexity 

Instruction space

Space needed for code 

Data Space

  1. i. Space needed for constants and simple variables ii. Space needed for dynamically allocated objects (such as arrays, structures, etc) Environment stack space: 
  2. i. It is used to save information needed to resume execution of partially executed function. ii. Each time a function is invoked the following data are saved on the environment stack 

The return address The values of local variables and formal parameters 

Recursion stack space: Amount of stack space needed by recursive functions is called recursion stack space. It depends on 

  • Space needed by local variables and formal parameters 
  • Maximum depth of recursion (i.e., maximum number of nested recursive calls
  • Compiler being used The total space needed by a program is divided into two parts
  1. 1. Fixed Part 2. Variable Part 

A fixed part independent of instance characteristics (e.g., size, number, value) 1. Instruction space 2. Data space (space needed for constants and simple variables and some dynamically 

allocated objects) Note: The space needed by some of the dynamically allocated memory may also 

be independent of problem size 3. Environment stack space for nonrecursive functions 

A variable part dependent on instance characteristics 

  1. 1. Dynamically allocated space 2. Recursion stack space 

2.2 Definition 

The space complexity S (P) of any algorithm P can be written as 

S (P) = C + Sp(I) C constant that denotes fixed part Sp Variable part that depends on instance characteristics (I) (e.g., size, number, value


2.3 Examples 

  1. 1

Algorithm abc(a, b, c

return a + b + b*c/(a+b+4.0)

Sp(abc) =

C = Space needed for a, b, cand result

  1. 2

Algorithm Sum(a, n

S = 0; for(i = 1 to n

S = s + a[i]; return s

Space required for 

  • formal parameters a and

local variables s, i and constant

  • instruction space. This amount of space needed does not depend on value of n

Ssum(n) = 0 Since a is actually the address of the first element in a[](i.e., a[0]), the space needed by it is also constant 

Algorithm rsum(int a[], int n


return rsum(a, n1)+a[n1]; return 0

Let reference of a = 4bytes; value of n = 4 bytes; return address = 4 bytes are stored on recursion stack for each recursion call. Each recursive call require 12 bytes Depth of recursion = (n+1) recursion stack space = 12(n+1) Sisum(n) = 12 (n+1

  1. 3. Time Complexity 

3.1 Time Complexity 

Time taken by a program P is sum of compile time and runtime 

T(P) = C + TP(I) C (compile time) is independent of instance characteristics (.. constant) TP(I) (Run time) is dependent on instance characteristics

(i) However, analytical approach to determine the exact runtime is complicated 

Since runtime depends on machine dependent issues like i) Type of processor, ii) Access 

rate (rate/write operations), iii) Architecture and machine independent issue iv) input size. (ii) Run time expression should be machineindependent

Therefore, we estimate runtime as function of input size. i.e., we find rate of growth of time with respect to input size

Running time = f(input size)
