Timetable at FEE Students of ePAL Upload system BRUTE Discussion board


Problem sets with comments/solutions

Extra online consultations will be organized during semester weeks 10. - 14. to discuss presented solutions in problem set 1.-8.

Online consultations

Consultation 1

Consultation date: Tue 24.11., 16:15-17:45

The discussed topics of the consultation were topics 5. and 6. - Isomorphism and Combinatorial generation (see the documents above), those correspond to lectures 5. and 6.

Consultation 2

The discussed topics of the consultation will be topics 3. and 4. - Directed graphs and Heaps (see the documents above), those correspond to lectures 3. and 4.

Your course of action:

1. Note the consultation date: Mon 30.11., 11:00-12:30

2. Check the solutions/comments of the given topics 3. and 4. above. Mark the solutions which, in your opinion, need more explanation or corrections and which you would like to understand better.

3. Go to the poll Advanced Algorithms Consultation 2 and tick the boxes at the corresponding problems from topics 3. and 4. above, where you demand more explanation.
Complete this step before 10:00 PM Sunday 29.11.
The consultations will discuss primarily the problems in the highest demand.

The Basics

Introduction and repetitions

  • Asymptotic complexity recap. Training problems are here. Another set in Czech.
  • Graphs and their representations, BFS, DFS. Solve example exam problems. Additional training problems can be found here.
  • For more thorough or necessary basic acquaintance with the related topics consult the book Problems on Algorithms. Student are expected to be able to solve any problem marked by one cap in chapters 2. and 3. both during the semester and at the exam. We recommend problems 64. - 66., 144. - 148., 163. - 170. as an easy start.

Upload system

  • An introduction to Upload system, 0-th programming optional (not graded) task, its specification can be found here.
    Write a program that solves the task. Upload it and check how the system asseses it. Follow strictly the rules specified on page Upload System.

Training homework problem

  • The solution and submission is not mandatory and it is not graded if submitted. The problem itself is extremely simple, you can utilize it is to get acquainted with the. Upload System BRUTE.
