# Laboration 1.3, Group 28

This is a hand-in written by Mazdak Farrokhzad and Niclas Alexandersson in group 28 for the 3rd assignment on Lab1.

The assignment is about analysing an algorithm written in 3 different ways where all of them are functionally equivalent. The methods are available in the appendix.

## The analysis consists of:

a. Description of what the algorithm does

b. Complexity analysis

c. Testing and numerical analysis

# Description of what the algorithm does

The algorithm finds the sum of the first subsequence of numbers that has the greatest non-negative sum in an array of numbers. This may sound cryptic, so lets shed some light on it with an illustration.

If we have e.g. the sequence [1, 2, 3, 4] it will yield the sum 10, and the indexes will be seqStart = 0, seqEnd = 3

• thus it will simply return the sum of the whole sequence.

Instead, lets use the sequence [-1, 2, 3, 4, -10, 5].

In this case the subsequence will be the sum [2, 3, 4] = 9, and the indexes will be seqStart = 1, seqEnd = 3.

Why? The first number, -1, will be skipped sinc
