Growth rates 2010-01-26
From Bhavya:
Dear Sir/Ma'am,

I read in the text book that the growth rates of these 3 functions are as below- n2/3 < n/lg n < n0.99

I tried the substitution method to check the correctness of this. But it gets really tough as n increase.

Is there any simpler way to understand the correctness of these growth rates?

Thanks and Regards,
