Matching Nuts and Bolts (Extended Abstract ) . Our main result is an n(log n)O(1)-time deterministic algorithm, based on expander graphs, for matching the bolts and the nuts . Matching Nuts and Bolts in O(n log n) Time (Extended Abstract ). Conference Paper January 1996 with 42 Reads DOI: 10.1145/313852.314069 Source: DBLP Abstract . We describe a procedure which may be helpful to hereanized carpenter who has a mixed pile of bolts and nuts and wants to find the corresponding pairs of bolts and nuts . The procedure uses our (and the carpenterapos;s) ability to construct efficiently highly expanding graphs.

Matching nuts and bolts (Extended Abstract) Noga Alon Manuel Blum y Moni Naorcfw_ Amos Fiat z Sampath Kannan x Rafail Ostrovsky The problem considered is given a collection of n bolts of distinct widths and n nuts such that there is a 1-1 correspondence between the nuts and bolts . The goal is to find for each bolt its corresponding nut hereparing nuts to bolts but not nuts to nuts or bolts to bolts .

Matching nuts and bolts (Extended Abstract ) By Noga Alon, Manuel Blum, Amos Fiat, Sampath Kannan and Rafail Ostrovsky Moni Naor. Abstract . is given a collection of n bolts of distinct widths and n nuts such that there is a 1-1 correspondence between the nuts and bolts . Matching nuts and bolts (Extended Abstract ) . The nuts and bolts matching problem is first mentioned as an exercise in [14], page 293. There is a simple randomized algorithm along the lines of Quicksort for this problem and this solution is described later in this section. Since there are n! possibilities for σ, Matching Nuts and Bolts - Solution. Suppose that there are n nuts and bolts . A simple modification of Quicksort shows that there are randomized algorithms whose expected hereparisons (and running time) are O(n log n): pick a random bolt , compare it to all the nuts , find its matching nut herepare it to all the bolts ,

Matching nuts and bolts faster . Germany Received 18 March 1996; revised 18 heremunicated by H. Ganzinger Abstract The problem of matching nuts and bolts is the following: Given a collection of n nuts of distinct sizes and n bolts such that there is a one-to-one correspondence between the nuts and the bolts ,
