Determination of Time Complexity
The RAM Model
The random access model (RAM) of computation was devised through John von Neumann to study algorithms. In computer science, Algorithms are studied since they are independent of machine & language.
We will do all our design & analysis of algorithms depend on RAM model of computation:
The complexity of algorithms by using big-O notation can be described in the following way for a problem of size n:
The procedure of analysis of algorithm (program) involves analyzing each of the step of the algorithm. It based on the kinds of statements utilized in the program.
