CS 170, Midterm #1, Spring 1997) CS 170, Spring 1997 Midterm #1 Problem #1 (50 points) Let T be a binary tree with root r. The height of a vertex v is 0 if v is a leaf vertex, and otherwise it is the height of the subtree rooted at v; i.e. it is the distance between v and the farthest leaf in the subtree rooted at v. The balance factor of a vertex v is defined to be the difference between the height of v's left child and the height of its right child. By convention, the balance factor of leaf vertex is defined to be 0. Give a linear time algorithm that given as input a binary tree T and its root vertex r, computes the balance factor of all vertices in T. Problem #2 (50 points) You are given a directed graph G(V,E) with associated weights w:E->Z on the edges. Moreover you know that there is only one edge (u, v) whose weight is negative -- all other edges weight are positive. (30 points) Show how to use Dijkstra's algorithm to determine whether G(V,E) has negative cycle.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
