Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Analyzing algorithms, part of Java Essential Training for Students.
- In this section, we're going to…talk about algorithm analysis.…Algorithm analysis is concern with comparing…algorithms based upon the amount…of computing resources that each algorithm uses.…We want to be able to consider two algorithms…and say that one is better than the other…because it is more efficient in its use of those resources,…or perhaps because it simply uses fewer resources.…When dealing with algorithm analysis,…It is important to first think about…what is meant by computing resources.…
For example, we can consider the amount of space,…or memory, an algorithm requires to solve the problem.…Or, as an alternative to space requirements,…we can analyze and compare algorithms based on…the amount of time they require to execute.…This measure is sometimes referred to as…the execution time, or the running time, of the algorithm.…One way we can measure the execution time…of a program is to do a benchmark analysis.…This means that we will track the actual time required…for the program to compute its result.…
