/Lecture5 - intro. dynamic programming - fibonacci, counting paths, n choose k

/Lecture6 - More dynamic programming - counting odd paths, shortest paths, longest paths, subset sum

Lectures 7 and 8 - Longest ascending subsequence, longest common subsequence (see book section 11.5).

/Lecture9 - depth-first search

/Lecture10 - cut vertices by DFS

Lecture11 - recurrence relations, recurrence trees (see here: S04_CS141:RecurrenceRelations)

Lecture12 - DFS in digraphs and topological sort (S04_CS141:DFSInDiGraphs, S04_CS141:CyclesByDFS and S04_CS141:TopologicalSortByDFS)

Lecture13 - bread-first-search, graph representations (S04_CS141:BreadthFirstSearch, S04_CS141:GraphDataStructures)

MidtermReview

practice midterm and solutions to practice midterm

midterm solutions

midterm solutions and /Grades

**Reading:** Read chapters 3, section 11.5 (longest common subsequence algorithm), chapter 12 (graphs, focus on DFS, BFS, Dijkstra's algorithm)

Jason's demonstration of longest common subsequence algorithm...

/Grades - grading policy changed (best 3 of 4 on hwks and progs, final can replace midterm)

/Repository -- Get started for /Labs by downloading files from the /Repository .

/Labs (attendance required).

Lab2 - survey on book topics, search algorithms, stl, hwk1, prog2
