recursive. 2. A recursive algorithmmust have a base case. This means there is a value for the function that is easy to calculate directly, without a recursive call.This identifies a point where the recursive calls end and you can solve the entire problem. 3. Each time a recursive

L16: Recursion I CSE120, Spring 2017 Recursive Solutions Base case(s) When the problem is simple enough to be solved directly Needed to prevent infinite recursion Recursive case(s) Function calls itself one or more times on “smaller” problems • Dividethe problem into one or more simpler/smaller parts • Invokethe function (recursively) on each part

### Using Recursion to Convert Number to Other Number Bases

Recursive algorithm Base case if decimal number being converted = 0 • do nothing (or return "") Recursive case if decimal number being converted > 0 • solve a simpler version of the problem by using the quotient as the argument to the next call • store the current remainder (number % base

### CSE 2123 Recursion

Properties of recursion Recursive methods will have two cases: The general case This is the recursive call to itself This is where we make the problem smaller and use our method to solve that smaller problem The base case This is the non-recursive case This is where the problem is as small as it is going to get and we need to solve it

### Recursion and Recurrences - math.dartmouth.edu

by the recursive part of the recurrence, which in this case is T(n)=2T(n/2)+n.Atthe bottom level, the work comes from the base case. Thus we must compute the number of problems of size 1 (assuming that one is the base case), and then multiply this value by T(1). For this particular

Merge Sort: Base Case • General algorithm for merge sort: 1. Sort the first half using merge sort. (recursive!) 2. Sort the second half using merge sort. (recursive!) 3. Merge the two sorted halves to obtain the final sorted array. • What is the base case?

Base caserecursive method capable of solving only this simplest case (if the problem is easy, solve it immediately, e.g. “Are we done yet?”) •If method is called with base case (e.g. the problem is simple), the method returns the result •For more complex problems, divide problem into two smaller pieces: 1.

### Chapter 13

• That easy-to-solve problem is called the base case. • The formula that reduces the size of a problem is called the general case. Recursive Methods • A recursive method calls itself, i.e. in the body of the method, there is a call to the method itself. • The arguments passed to the recursive call are

### Recursion 1 - Virginia Tech

Every recursive algorithm must possess: - a base case in which no recursion occurs - a recursive case There must be a logical guarantee that the base case is eventually reached, otherwise the recursion will not cease and we will have an infinite recursive descent. Recursive algorithms may compute a …
