## Change in Homework #3 | |

Dear Students, We have replaced the shortest paths exercises in the third assignment by greedy and Huffman related problems. The replaced questions will appear in the following problem set.

## Change of tutorial schedule | |

Dear Students, To sync the tutorials better with the lectures, we have changed the order of tutorials. This week all groups but Tuesday's 9:30 class will see the "Greedy+Huffman" tutorial which now appears on the course website. Next week, Tuesday's 9:30 class will see the greedy tutorial while the remaining groups will go over the first shortest path tutorial. Since the assignment contains shortest path problems, we will shortly replace those with greedy/Huffman exercises, and give an appropriate extension to the submission deadline. If you have already started solving those - don't worry, they will appear in the next assignment. If you are attending Tuesday's 9:30 class - don't panic ! you'll have enough time to complete the assignment, including the greedy algorithm exercises, after you learn about it in class next week :). Best, The course staff. |
