Recurrences Lecture Notes Solutions Chapter 5: Heapsort Lecture Notes Solutions Chapter 7: Quicksort Lecture Notes Solutions Chapter 8: Because this revision history is part of each revision, the affected chapters always include the front matter in addition to those listed below.

Corrected an error in the transpose-symmetry properties. Added solutions to Exercises 5. Made minor changes in the solutions to Problems and Chapters 5, 11, 12, 16, 17, 21, and 26; index.

Corrected two minor typographical errors in the lecture notes for the expected height of a randomly built binary search tree.

Updated the solution to Exercise Added the link to the website for the clrscode package to the preface. Added the solution to Problem Corrected solutions to Ex- ercise Chapters 23, 24, and 26; index. Added solutions to Exercises Chapters 24 and 26; index. Corrected a minor typographical error in the Chapter 22 notes on page Chapters 21 and 22; index. Added the solution to Exercise Chapters 16, 17, and 22; index.

Corrected an error in the solution to Exercise Reversed the order of Exercises Corrected an error in the substitution method for recurrences on page Corrected a minor typographical error in the Chapter 8 notes on page Changed the exposition of indicator random variables in the Chapter 5 notes to correct for an error in the text.

The only content changes are on page ; in pages and only pagination changes.

Corrected an error in the pseudocode for the solution to Ex- ercise 2. Rivest, and Clifford Stein. It is intended for use in a course on algorithms. That is, for most chapters we have provided a set of lecture notes and a set of ti and problem solutions pertaining to the chapter.

This organization allows you to decide how to best use the material in the manual in your own course. We have not included lecture soltions and solutions for every chapter, nor have we included solutions for every exercise and problem within the chapters that we have selected. We felt that Chapter 1 is too nontechnical to include here, and Chap- ter 10 consists of algorithns material that often falls outside algorithms and data- structures courses.


We have also omitted the chapters that are not covered in the courses that we teach: Chapters 18—20 and 28—35, as well as Appendices A—C; future editions of this manual may include some of these chapters. There are two reasons that we have not included solutions to all exercises and problems in the selected chapters.

First, writing up all edigion solutions would take a long time, and we felt it more important to release this algorithmss in as timely a fashion as possible. Second, if we were to include all solutions, this manual would be longer than the text itself!

We chose this form of page numbering so that if we add or change solutions to exercises and problems, the only pages whose numbering is affected are those for the solutions for that chapter. Moreover, if we add material for currently uncovered chapters, the numbers of the existing pages will remain unchanged.

The lecture notes The lecture notes are based on three sources: Some sections of the text—usually starred—are omitted from the lecture notes. We have included lec- ture notes for one starred section: The asides are typeset in a slanted font and are enclosed in square brack- ets. If you are projecting a presenta- tion rather than writing on a blackboard or whiteboard, you might want to mark slides containing this material so that you can easily come back to them later in the lecture.

We have chosen not to indicate how long it takes to cover material, as the time nec- essary to cover a topic depends on the instructor, the students, the class schedule, and other variables. There are two differences in how we write pseudocode in the lecture notes and the text: Instead, we pass the array length as a parameter to the procedure. This change makes the pseudocode more concise, as well as matching better with the description of what it does.

The solutions The solutions are based on the same sources as the lecture notes. They are written a bit more formally than the lecture notes, though a bit less formally than the text. We do iintroduction number lines of pseudocode, but we do use the length attribute on the assumption that you will want your students to write pseudocode as it appears in the text.

The index lists all yo exercises and problems for which this manual provides solu- tions, along with the number of the page on which each solution starts.

Asides appear in a handful of places throughout the solutions. We apologize for this inconvenience. It enables you to typeset pseudocode in the same way that we do. That site also includes documentation. Please report errors by sending email to clrs-manual-bugs mhhe. You can use the MIT Press web site for the wlgorithms, http: We thank you in advance for your assistance in correcting errors in both this manual and the text. The other three Introduction to Algorithms authors—Charles Leiserson, Ron Rivest, and Cliff Stein—provided helpful comments and suggestions for solutions to exercises algofithms problems.


At this point, we do not know which TAs wrote which solutions, and so sfcond simply thank them collectively. Phillip Meek of McGraw- Hill helped us hook this manual into their web site. Getting Started Chapter 2 overview Goals: Insertion sort The sorting problem Input: The sequences are typically stored in arrays. We also refer to the numbers as keys. Along with each key may be additional information, known as satellite data.

Each way will be expressed as an algorithm: Expressing algorithms We express algorithms in whatever way is the clearest and most concise. English is sometimes the best way. When issues of control need to be made perfectly clear, algorighms often use pseudocode.

If you know any of these languages, you should be able to understand pseudocode. Software en- gineering issues of data abstraction, modularity, and error handling are often ignored. Insertion sort A good algorithm for sorting a small number of elements. It works the way you might sort a hand of playing cards: There are a few places in later chapters where we use 0-origin indexing instead. An easier option is, when using an array A[1. That saves us a line of pseu- docode each time.

The solutions continue to use the length attribute. Lecture Notes for Chapter 2: Each part shows what happens for a particular itera- tion with the value of j indicated. Elements to the left of A[ j ] that are greater than A[ j ] move one position to the right, and A[ j ] moves into the evacuated position. The heavy vertical lines separate the part of the array in which algoritmhs iteration works— A[1.

To use a loop invariant to prove correctness, we must show three things about it: If it is true before an iteration of the loop, it remains true before the next iteration.

When the loop terminates, the invariant—usually along with the reason that the loop terminated—gives us a useful property that helps show that the algorithm is correct. Using loop invariants is like mathematical induction: At that point, the value of key is placed into this position. In other words, the entire array is sorted! Pseudocode conventions [Covering most, but not all, here.

See book pages 19—20 for all conventions. Saves splutions and writing time. For an at- tribute attr of object x, we write attr[x]. This would be the equivalent of x. It does not cause attributes of one object to be copied seconv another.
