You can keep everything except your answer booklet when you leave. 1. An integer program is a linear program with the additional constraint that the variables must take only integer values. Prove that deciding whether an integer program has a feasible solution is NP-complete. [Hint: Almost any NP-hard decision problem can be formulated as an integer program. Pick your favorite.] 2. Recall that a priority search tree is a binary tree in which every node has both a search key and a priority , arranged so that the tree is simultaneously a binary search tree for the keys and a min-heap for the priorities. A heater is a priority search tree in which the priorities are given by the user, and the search keys are distributed uniformly and independently at random in the real interval [ 0,1 ] . Intuitively, a heater is the opposite of a treap. The following problems consider an n-node heater T whose node priorities are the integers from 1 to n . We identify nodes in T by their priorities; thus, node 5 means the node in T with priority 5. The min-heap property implies that node 1 is the root ofpriority 5....
