Algorithmic ComplexitySeptember 12, 2018

Algorithmic Complexity In previous post about algorithms ( Algorithms Intro ), we briefly discussed the notion of algorithms and saw couple of examples. In this post, let us dive in little deeper. Besides the modularity, user friendliness and security of an algorithm, we have to consider the performance of an algorithm. Let's discuss the ways to analyze this matter here to write better and faster…

Rules of Inference (Discrete Math)August 26, 2018

Rules of Inference Inference - is a process of drawing conclusion based on the evidence and reasoning. It holds a certain level of probability relative to the premises. It could also be an educated guess. Premise - a (previous) propositional statement supporting a conclusion. Proof - is a valid argument that establishes the truth of a statement. Argument in logic is a sequence of…

Set Operations (Discrete Math)August 26, 2018

Set Operations Frequently we need to combine sets to produce new sets. For instance, say we have a set of animals that live under the water and another set of animals that live on the ground. We could make a new set of animals that can live both, under water and on the ground. Or a set of animals that cannot live in water. There are a few ways of combining sets. 1. Intersections Let's say that we…

1. What is an Algorithm? Algorithm - is a well-defined set of instructions to solve a problem. In other words, an algorithm is a computational procedure that takes in an input , processes it and then spits out an output . There are certain properties an algorithm must have to be considered as valid. Input - an algorithm is provided with input or set of inputs Output - an algorithm produces…
