Question 6 (10 marks)

The set BT consists of all binary rooted trees whose vertices are elements of the

set ℕ of natural numbers. The empty tree is denoted by ∅ .

The following basic primitive functions for manipulating elements of BT are given:

ROOT BT : → ℕ, where ROOT t( ) = the root of the non-empty tree t

LEFT BT BT : → , where LEFT t( ) = the left subtree of the non-empty tree t

RIGHT BT BT : → , where RIGHT t( ) = the right subtree of the non-empty tree t

MAKE BT BT BT : × × → ℕ , where MAKE t n s ( , , ) = the tree with root n , left

subtree t and right subtree s

Question 7 (10 marks)

The following algorithm, Algorithm1, counts the number of pairs of integers in a list.

Algorithm Algorithm1

begin

Input x1, x2, …, xn

count := 0

for i := 2 to n do

begin

for j := 1 to (i – 1) do

begin

if xi = xj then

begin

count := count + 1

end

end

end

Output count

end

(a) Verify that the algorithm works on the list 2, 3, 6, 2, 6.

(b) Find a time complexity function for the algorithm by calculating how many times

the comparison i j x x = is performed for an input sequence of length n .
