By Meenakshi, Kamal Rawat

I wished to compute eightieth time period of the Fibonacci sequence. I wrote the rampant recursive functionality,

int fib(int n){

go back (1==n || 2==n) ? 1 : fib(n-1) + fib(n-2);


and waited for the end result. I wait… and wait… and wait…

With an 8GB RAM and an Intel i5 CPU, why is it taking goodbye? I terminated the method and attempted computing the fortieth time period. It took a few moment. I placed a money and was once surprised to discover that the above recursive functionality was once known as 204,668,309 occasions whereas computing the fortieth time period.

greater than 2 hundred million occasions? Is it reporting functionality calls or rip-off of a few executive?

The Dynamic Programming resolution computes one hundredth Fibonacci time period in lower than fraction of a moment, with a unmarried functionality name, taking linear time and relentless additional reminiscence.

A recursive answer, often, neither move all try out instances in a coding pageant, nor does it provoke the interviewer in an interview of corporation like Google, Microsoft, and so on.

the main tricky questions requested in competitions and interviews, are from dynamic programming. This ebook takes Dynamic Programming head-on. It first clarify the suggestions with basic examples after which deep dives into complicated DP difficulties.
