Ques : What is Complexity ?

, , No Comments

Complexity refers to the rate at which the required storage or consumed time grows as a function of the problem size. The absolute growth depends on the machine used to execute the program, the compiler used to construct the program, and many other factors. We would like to have a way of describing the inherent complexity of a program (or piece of a program), independent of machine/compiler considerations. This means that we must not try to describe the absolute time or storage needed. We must instead concentrate on a “proportionality” approach, expressing the complexity in terms of its relationship to some known function. This type of analysis is known as asymptotic analysis. It may be noted that we are dealing with complexity of an algorithm not that of a problem. For example, the simple problem could have high order of time com
