🕑 The review session will focus on the upcoming exam and test review.

💡 Amortized analysis is the process of determining the average runtime of a function with varying runtimes based on certain conditions.

🔎 The goal of amortized analysis is to obtain a realistic runtime of an algorithm by taking the average of the most frequently occurring runtimes.

📚 Partial credit is given for coding assignments if the syntax is close and the thought process is explained.

🔢 For homework questions, providing the formula or thought process is more important than the final answer.

🎓 Understanding the big O notation and basic concepts of different sorting algorithms is important for exams.

📚 The video discusses the concept of amortized analysis and its application in algorithms.

🔁 The video explores the difference between algorithms with nested loops and how small changes in the algorithm can drastically affect the runtime.

🔢 The video explains the calculation of runtime for different types of loops and the considerations to make when counting operations.

🔑 Algorithm 2 involves the summation of n times the summation of i divided by 2

💡 The formula for the summation of 1 over 2 to the power of i is 1/2 over 1 minus 1/2 equals 1

📘 Algorithm 5 has a time complexity of 3nlogn + 2n, while Algorithm 4 has a time complexity of 3logn + 1

💡 The reviewer explains the calculation of log base 2 of n+1 in the context of an algorithm.

🔍 The reviewer demonstrates how a specific code snippet has a runtime of O(n) based on counting the number of operations.

📈 The reviewer discusses the distinction between different types of runtime complexity and provides an example.

👩🏫 In Big O notation, log base 2 is used for calculations because it is the lowest whole number that's not one.

💡 Practice is recommended to understand and analyze the runtime of algorithms.

📚 For sorting algorithms, familiarity with comparison-based ones is important, but knowing the code for non-comparison based algorithms is not necessary.

📚 The video is a review session for CSCE 221, discussing topics related to coding and file management.

💻 The speaker emphasizes the importance of testing code and ensuring it works properly on IDEs like Visual Studio.

🎥 The speaker mentions that all group videos for the course have been received and some were more interesting than others.
