Data Driven Solutions to Selected Problems

Hamming's Problem: (Applet)
Given a list P of prime numbers in increasing order, output a list L of integers, in increasing order, such that for every integer X in L, all the prime factors of X are members of P and every integer not in L has at least one prime factor that is not in P.

Example:     If P = { 3,5,11 }     Then L = { 3,5,9,11,15,25,27,33,45,55,...}

Topological Sort     
Given a set N of Nodes, each having a dependency set M of Nodes which is a subset of N. Find a linear order L for the Nodes of N such that every Node exists in L after all nodes in its dependency list MM. Such a linear order is called a topological sort of the partial order described by the Nodes and their dependency sets.

Example:   If N = {1,2,3,4}   and M(1) = {2,4}, M(2) = {4}, M(3) = {1}, M(4) = {}   Then L = [4,2,1,3].

Stirling Numbers     
Stirling numbers are defined recursively as follows:
    S(m,n) = S(m-1,n-1) + m*S(m,n-1);
    S(0,n) = 0;
    S(1,n) = 1;
    S(n,n) = 1;

Example:   S(1,10)=1, S(2,10)=511, S(3,10)=9330, S(4,10)=34105, S(5,10)=42525

Stirling.java Data driven Java solution without Threads.

Fibonacci Numbers     
Fibonacci numbers are defined recursively as follows:
    F(n) = F(n-1) + F(n-2);
    F(0) = 1;
    F(1) = 1;

Example:   F(2)=2, F(3)=3, F(4)=5, F(5)=8, F(6)=13
