**PIECEWISE** LINEAR SOLUTION PATHS 9 by the algorithm is on average O (n). This can be heuristically understood as follows. Ifn>p, it takes O (p) steps to add all variables and O (n) steps for knot crossing; ifn<p, since at mostnvariables are allowed in the fitted model, it takes O (n) steps for ...
