Plus pr´ecis´ement, il faut n multiplications, n+1 appels r´ecursifs `a la fonction factorielle et n soustractions. Si l’on consid`ere que ces trois types d’op´erations ont des coˆ uts voisins, alors la complexit´e de factorielle est de l’ordre de 2n + (n + 1), c’est-` a-dire de l’ordre de 3n. On consid´erera donc que la fonction factorielle a une complexit´e qui augmente au mˆeme rythme que son argument, ce qu’on note O(n) et qu’on prononce « grand-o de n ».
