About

This is a collection of algorithms, formulas, or written in different programing languages: https://github.com/Zeyu-Li/algorithms

ADT

Python

  • Stack [O(1) constant]
  • Bounded Queues [O(n) linear time]
  • Circular Queues [O(1) constant]

The next two have a node (SLinkedListNode or DLinkedListNode) and the implementation (SLinkedList or DLinkedList)

  • Singly Linked List [O(n) linear time]
  • Doubly Linked List [O(n) linear time]

C++

Included in STL

  • Stack
  • Queue
  • Priority Queue
  • Vectors
  • Lists (similar to Vectors)
  • Sets
  • Heaps
  • Sorting O(nlog(n))

Mine

  • Binary Tree (has template class)
  • Hash Table
  • Graphs
    • Matrix representation (has template class)
    • List/Hash-like table representation (has template class)
    • List of edges with weights
  • Heaps

Algorithms

Python

  • GCD (greatest common denominator) by Euclidean algorithm
  • LCM (least common multiple) uses GCD
  • Pi Approximator via Monte Carlo
  • Matrix Multiplication O(n^3)
  • Strassen's Matrix Multiplication ~O(n^2.81) (less precise than the one above)

C++

  • GCD via Euclidean algorithm
  • LCM (least common multiple) uses GCD
  • BFS - Breath first search (+ shortest path) O(V+E)
  • DFS - Depth first search O(V+E)
  • Dijkstra's Algorithm - Shortest path O(V^2)
  • Bellman-Ford - Shortest path (dp) O(E*V)
  • Floyd-Warshall - Shortest path for all pairs of points O(V^3)
  • Kruskal's Algorithm - Minimum spanning tree O(E log E)
  • Prim's Algorithm - Minimum spanning tree O(V^2)
  • Quick Square Root from Quake III

Go

  • Is prime

TypeScript

  • Is prime

Sorting

Python

  • Insertion O(n^2)
  • Bubble O(n^2)
  • Merge O(nlogn)
  • Quick O(nlogn)

Concepts

Greedy

Take the best in current case and continue for all cases (don't look back)

Divide and Conquer

Divides problems into many subproblems that can be tackled (usually in similar ways)

Dynamic Programming

Keep a table or array of calculated values such that items in table or array need to be calculated only once

Hash Tables/Maps

Very efficient data structures that can speed up search, push and many others. Most of the time, modulus will be used as the hash function. In Python, dictionaries are hash maps and are really useful. JavaScript has objects that can also act like hash tables!

Randomness

Randomness in so algorithms can improve running time, especially if you are parallelize it such that the randomness can help you get the answer with the fastest sub-processes

How to Use

Python

For MacOS or Linux:

python3 name_of_program.py

For Windows:

py name_of_program.py

C++

Needs to be complied (recommended gcc)

Usage

Can be copied and pasted directly to the file or drag in the file and be include with #include "NameOfFile.cpp" header
