Unformatted text preview: Fall 11: CSci 5421Advanced Algorithms and Data Structures Out 9/7 Homework 1 Due 9/21 Instructions: This assignment is due at the beginning of class. Please do all problems. However, due to TA resource limitations, we will grade only a subset of three to four problems (same subset for everyone). Any exercise/problem number specified refers to the 3rd edition of the text. The work you turn in must be your own (see Class Policies in the syllabus). Remember that we will be looking at a very large number of assignments, so it is important that you do your best to facilitate the grading process (and keep us in good humor :-)). Towards this end, please keep the following in mind: Write legibly or, better still, type your answers. Staple your answer sheets and include your name and student ID# . Communicate your ideas clearly and precisely, especially where proofs and/or algorithms are involved. Dont leave it to us to divine your intentions; we can give points only for what we see on the answer sheet, not for what you may have intended for us to see. At the same time, dont be verbose; keep your answers concise and to-the-point. The points you earn will be determined by the content and clarity of your answers, not their length (see below). As a guideline, answers will be graded according to the following general criteria: Answer demonstrates complete understanding of the problem. It has no errors and is crystal clear. It belongs in the textbook. Answers in this category will receive 100%. Answer demonstrates substantial understanding of the problem. It has only one or two minor errors and is explained clearly. Answers in this category will receive between 66% and 100%. Answer demonstrates only partial understanding of the problem. It has several minor errors and/or a major error. Answers in this category will receive between 33% and 66%. Answer demonstrates little or no understanding of the problem. It has several major errors. Answers in this category will receive between 0% and 33%, depending on the severity of the errors....
