- How can you find the time complexity for an algorithm that uses recursion?
- What is a linear homogeneous recurrence equation with constant coefficients of degree k?
- How do you find a closed formula for a sequence?
- How do you find the roots of a characteristic equation and what do they tell you?
- How do you solve a system of linear recurrence equations?
- What is a nonhomogeneous recurrence equation, and how do you solve it?

This recitation reviews some concepts of recursion and recurrence equations. Some example problems are done for problems similar to those covered in lectures. This is a good video to watch for some more example problems to clear up you thinking and understanding of these particular topics, but not much new is discussed and it is rather dry.
