**Chapter 4**The Divide-and-Conquer Strategy**A Simple Example**• Finding the maximum of a set S of n numbers**Time Complexity**• Time complexity: • Calculation of T(n): Assume n = 2k, T(n) = 2T(n/2)+1 = 2(2T(n/4)+1)+1 = 4T(n/4)+2+1 : =2k-1T(2)+2k-2+…+4+2+1 =2k-1+2k-2+…+4+2+1 =2k-1 = n-1**A General Divide-and-Conquer Algorithm**Step 1: If the problem size is small, solve this problem directly; otherwise, split the original problem into 2 sub-problems with equal sizes. Step 2: Recursively solve these 2 sub-problems by applying this algorithm. Step 3: Merge the solutions of the 2 sub- problems into a solution of the original problem.**Time Complexity of the General Algorithm**• Time complexity: where S(n) : time for splitting M(n) : time for merging b : a constant c : a constant**2-D Maxima Finding Problem**• Def : A point (x1, y1) dominates (x2, y2) if x1 > x2 and y1 > y2. A point is called a maxima if no other point dominates it. • Straightforward method : Compare every pair of points. Time complexity: O(n2)**Divide-and-Conquer for Maxima Finding**The maximal points of SL and SR**The algorithm:**• Input: A set S of n planar points. • Output: The maximal points of S. Step 1: If S contains only one point, return it as the maxima. Otherwise, find a line L perpendicular to the X-axis which separates S into SLand SR, with equal sizes. Step 2: Recursively find the maximal points of SL and SR. Step 3: Find the largest y-value of SR, denoted as yR. Discard each of the maximal points of SL if its y-value is less than yR.**Time complexity: T(n)**Step 1: O(n) Step 2: 2T(n/2) Step 3: O(n) Assume n = 2k T(n) = O(n log n)**The Closest Pair Problem**• Given a set S of n points, find a pair of points which are closest together. • 1-D version : Solved by sorting Time complexity : O(n log n) 2-D version**The algorithm:**• Input: A set S of n planar points. • Output: The distance between two closest points. Step 1: Sort points in S according to their y-values. Step 2:If S contains only one point, return infinity as its distance. Step 3:Find a median line L perpendicular to the X-axis to divide S into SL and SR, with equal sizes. Step 4:Recursively apply Steps 2 and 3 to solve the closest pair problems of SL and SR. Let dL(dR) denote the distance between the closest pair in SL (SR). Let d = min(dL, dR).**Step 5: For a point P in the half-slab bounded by L-d and L,**let its y-value be denoted as yP . For each such P, find all points in the half-slab bounded by L and L+d whose y-value fall within yP+d and yP-d. If the distance dbetween P and a point in the other half-slab is less than d, let d=d. The final value of d is the answer. • Time complexity: O(n log n) Step 1: O(n log n) Steps 2~5: T(n) = O(n log n)**Concave polygon:**Convex polygon: The Convex Hull Problem • The convex hull of a set of planar points is the smallest convex polygon containing all of the points.**The merging procedure:**• Select an interior point p. • There are 3 sequences of points which have increasing polar angles with respect to p. (1) g, h, i, j, k (2) a, b, c, d (3) f, e • Merge these 3 sequences into 1 sequence: g, h, a, b, f, c, e, d, i, j, k. • Apply Graham scan to examine the points one by one and eliminate the points which cause reflexive angles. (See the example on the next page.)**e.g. points b and f need to be deleted.**Final result:**Divide-and-Conquer for Convex Hull**• Input : A set S of planar points • Output : A convex hull for S Step 1: If S contains no more than five points, use exhaustive searching to find the convex hull and return. Step 2: Find a median line perpendicular to the X-axis which divides S into SL and SR, with equal sizes. Step 3: Recursively construct convex hulls for SL and SR, denoted as Hull(SL) and Hull(SR), respectively.**Step 4:Apply the merging procedure to merge Hull(SL) and**Hull(SR) together to form a convex hull. • Time complexity: T(n) = 2T(n/2) + O(n) = O(n log n)**The Voronoi Diagram Problem**• e.g. The Voronoi diagram for three points Each Lij is the perpendicular bisector of the line.**Definition of Voronoi Diagrams**• Def: Given two points Pi, Pj S, let H(Pi,Pj) denote the half plane containing Pi. The Voronoi polygon associated with Pi is defined as**Given a set of n points, the Voronoi diagram consists of all**the Voronoi polygons of these points. • The vertices of the Voronoi diagram are called Voronoi points and its segments are called Voronoi edges.**Example for Constructing Voronoi Diagrams**• Divide the points into two parts.**Merging Two Voronoi Diagrams**• Merging along the piecewise linear hyperplane**The Final Voronoi Diagram**• After merging**Divide-and-Conquer for Voronoi Diagram**• Input: A set S of n planar points. • Output: The Voronoi diagram of S. Step 1: If S contains only one point, return. Step 2: Find a median line L perpendicular to the X-axis which divides S into SL and SR, with equal sizes.**Step 3: Construct Voronoi diagrams of SL and SR recursively.**Denote these Voronoi diagrams by VD(SL) and VD(SR). Step 4: Construct a dividing piece-wise linear hyperplane HP which is the locus of points simultaneously closest to a point in SL and a point in SR. Discard all segments of VD(SL) which lie to the right of HP and all segments of VD(SR) that lie to the left of HP. The resulting graph is the Voronoi diagram of S. (See details on the next page.)**Merging Two Voronoi Diagrams into One Voronoi Diagram**• Input: (a) SL and SR where SL and SR are divided by a perpendicular line L. (b) VD(SL ) and VD(SR ). • Output: VD(S) where S = SL ∩SR Step 1: Find the convex hulls of SL and SR, denoted as Hull(SL) and Hull(SR), respectively. (A special algorithm for finding a convex hull in this case will by given later.)**Step 2: Find segments and which join HULL(SL )**and HULL(SR ) into a convex hull (Pa and Pc belong to SL and Pb and Pd belong to SR) Assume that lies above . Let x = a, y = b, SG= and HP = . Step 3: Find the perpendicular bisector of SG. Denote it by BS. Let HP = HP∪{BS}. If SG = , go to Step 5; otherwise, go to Step 4.**Step 4: The ray from VD(SL ) and VD(SR) which BS first**intersects with must be a perpendicular bisector of either or for some z. If this ray is the perpendicular bisector of , then let SG = ; otherwise, let SG = . Go to Step 3. Step 5: Discard the edges of VD(SL) which extend to the right of HP and discard the edges of VD(SR) which extend to the left of HP. The resulting graph is the Voronoi diagram of S = SL∪SR.**Properties of Voronoi Diagrams**• Def : Given a point P and a set S of points, the distance between P and S is the distance between P and Pi which is the nearest neighbor of P in S. • The HP obtained from the above algorithm is the locus of points which keep equal distances to SL and SR. • The HP is monotonic in y.**# of Voronoi Edges**• # of edges of a Voronoi diagram 3n - 6, where n is # of points. • Reasoning: • # of edges of a planar graph with n vertices 3n - 6. • A Delaunay triangulation is a planar graph. • Edges in Delaunay triangulation edges in Voronoi diagram.**# of Voronoi Vertices**• # of Voronoi vertices 2n - 4. • Reasoning: • Let F, E and V denote # of face, edges and vertices in a planar graph. Euler’s relation: F = E - V + 2. • In a Delaunay triangulation, V = n, E 3n – 6 F = E - V + 2 3n - 6 - n + 2 = 2n - 4.**Construct a Convex Hull from a Voronoi Diagram**• After a Voronoi diagram is constructed, a convex hull can by found in O(n) time.**Construct a Convex Hull from a Voronoi Diagram**Step 1: Find an infinite ray by examining all Voronoi edges. Step 2: Let Pi be the point to the left of the infinite ray. Pi is a convex hull vertex. Examine the Voronoi polygon of Pi to find the next infinite ray. Step 3: Repeat Step 2 until we return to the starting ray.**Time Complexity**• Time complexity for merging 2 Voronoi diagrams: Total: O(n) • Step 1: O(n) • Step 2: O(n) • Step 3 ~ Step 5: O(n) (at most 3n - 6 edges in VD(SL) and VD(SR) and at most n segments in HP) • Time complexity for constructing a Voronoi diagram: O(n log n) because T(n) = 2T(n/2) + O(n) = O(n log n)**The Lower Bound of the Voronoi Diagram Problem**• The lower bound of the Voronoi diagram problem is (n log n). sorting Voronoi diagram problem The Voronoi diagram for a set of points on a straight line**Applications of Voronoi Diagrams**• The Euclidean nearest neighbor searching problem. • The Euclidean all nearest neighbor problem.**Fast Fourier Transform (FFT)**• Fourier transform • Inverse Fourier transform • Discrete Fourier transform(DFT) Given a0, a1, …, an-1 , compute**FFT Algorithm**• Inverse DFT: • DFT can be computed in O(n2) time by a straightforward method. • DFT can be solved by the divide-and-conquer strategy (FFT) in O(nlogn) time.**FFT Algorithm when n=4**• n=4, w=ei2π/4 , w4=1, w2=-1 A0=a0+a1+a2+a3 A1=a0+a1w+a2w2+a3w3 A2=a0+a1w2+a2w4+a3w6 A3=a0+a1w3+a2w6+a3w9 • Another form: A0 =(a0+a2)+(a1+a3) A2 =(a0+a2w4)+(a1w2+a3w6) =(a0+a2)-(a1+a3) • When we calculate A0, we shall calculate (a0+a2) and (a1+a3).
