Analysis of Algorithms helps us determine how efficient our algorithm is for a certain amount of processed data. In this process, you need to understand the algorithm’s complexity concerning time, input data size, and any other resource required to execute it. Domain and range of the function are measured using natural units. In the Analysis of Algorithms syllabus for GATE, the student finds problems related to determining which algorithm is better than the other.

Analysis of Algorithms books help students prepare for GATE, ISRO, BARC, and other computer science engineering exams.

## Important Topics under Analysis of Algorithms for GATE CS

 Topic Details Greedy Algorithm This algorithm provides an optimum solution to a given problem by making every step optimal on its way. Divide & Conquer Algorithm In this algorithm, the problem is divided into sub-parts, then each part is separately solved to give a solution to the entire problem. Geometric Algorithm This type of algorithm is used to solve a particular problem in Geometry. Bit Algorithm This type of algorithm is used to control the bits and provides faster results. Randomized Algorithm This type of algorithm uses a random number to decide what needs to be the next step. Backtracking Algorithm In this type of algorithm, the problem is solved step-by-step. The unwanted solution is discarded, and then it proceeds to find another solution that satisfies the problem condition.

### Tips to Prepare for the Analysis of Algorithms for GATE

• While doing a worst-case analysis, the student must remember to find the upper limit for the execution time, and they also need to find the maximum operation count for that case.
• While doing an average case analysis, the student needs to find a different time required for different input sizes and then take the average time out of the collected data.
• While doing a best-case analysis, the student must remember to find the lower limit for the execution time, and they also need to find the minimum operation count for that case.
• The students can take up an Analysis of Algorithms online test to improve their performance.
• The student should keep the Analysis of Algorithms study material for GATE CS handy for revisions.

### Importance of Analysis of Algorithms in GATE CS exam

• Analysis of Algorithms GATE questions and answers contribute 4-7 marks. It makes it a high scoring topic for the students.
• It is easy to understand this topic, which helps in scoring better marks.
• Analysis of Algorithms MCQ questions are simple and do not require complicated calculations, so it is easier to find the correct answers.
• Regular practice through the Analysis of Algorithms notes for GATE PDF and using a few simple tricks helps solve the problems quickly.
