Microsoft Word - **asymptotic**.doc. 1 CMPS 102 Introduction to Analysis of Algorithms Fall 2003 **Asymptotic** Growth of Functions We introduce several types of **asymptotic** notation which are used to compare the performance and efficiency of algorithms.

1. Introduction Many of the functions that arise from everyday problems cannot easily be evaluated exactly, particularly thosedeflnedin terms of integrals ordifierential equations.

Chapter2 **Asymptotic** Expansions In this chapter, we dene the order notation and **asymptotic** expansions. For addi-tionaldiscussion, see[4], and[17]. 2.1 Order notation The Oandoorder notation provides a precise mathematical formulation of ideas that correspond|roughly|to the'same order of magnitude ...
