As requested by several of you I will hold a short group session tomorrow. I will not prepare anything but will be able to answer questions regarding subjects from the curriculum and older exams. I will try to keep the format more as an informal discussion than what we usually do.

Same time and place!

Note that his lecture is NOT part of the curriculum this year, but it is rather a trial lecture for testing what can be incuded about Linear Programming in a normal lecture, without using terminology or operations from matrix theory.

Only 5 of the 40 students that answered our poll earlier this autumn did already have a reasonable knowledge about this topic. Thus, it might be of some interest to learn a little more about this.

NB: We hope that many students will turn up and afterwards tell us what can possibly be included in such a lecture!!

In the text of mandatory assignment 1 it was promised that a set of test data should appear.  However, it never did, until today (which indeed is rather late!).  Sorry for that!

A revised slide for the lecture on 16th Sept, regarding the definition of null path length is uploaded.

(A long right path, e.g. 1-2-3-4-5-6... would have been valid with the inaccurate definition.)

Proposed solutions for exercises on 8th and 15th Sept. are uploaded

Læreboka er som i fjor: Berman & Paul: "Algorithms: Sequential, Parallel and Distributed". Det har de siste årene vært problemer med å få tak i denne boka, så se her hvordan du kan laste ned læreboka fra nettet.

Ellers vil kurset gå omtrent som i fjor.
