Algorithms and Time Complexity


In algorithm development, the time and space required for algorithm completion is paramount. As users, we know that when a computer process takes too long, we try to avoid it. This truth encourages all IT and computer-based companies to produce faster products and services.

For this assignment, write a one- to two-page paper that includes all required algorithms and pseudocode describing the time and space complexity of algorithms. Include the following:

  1. Answer the following questions:
    • What is time complexity?
    • What is space complexity?
  2. Compare and contrast polynomial time algorithms and nondeterministic polynomial (NP) time algorithms (one paragraph minimum).
  3. Provide an example of an algorithm for each worst-case run times:
    • On).
    • Onk). Note that this is called polynomial-time, where is any number greater than 1.
    • NP-time.

Hint: Quick sort is an algorithm that runs in Onlog n) time.
