Notes on Q2 - Moed B
Due to an error, the attached comment index for Q2 was not published along with your test notebooks. When you will find number k=1,2,… enveloped in a square at the margins of your answer to q.2, find the text of comment number k in the following lists.

If you feel your appeal has been wrongfully denied due to unclear comments for Q2, please contact the course mailbox with your details.

Your request for reconsideration must include the relevant comment #, and an explanation detailing why you believe it does not apply. Your may not include requests for reconsideration of other questions and/or of comments on Q2 already detailed in the grader comments.

All requests must be submitted by midnight, 30/8/15.

2a:

  1. The condition of Multi-SAT is related to the number of variables (n) in the original formula phi, not to the number of variables in the formula f(phi) of Multi-SAT.
  2. Polynomiality of the reduction is not related in the answer.
  3. Clause (x1 v x2 v … v xk) has 2^k, not 2^k-1 satisfying assignments.
  4. The explanation goes as if satisfying assignments for the original formula phi and for f(phi) are the same. That is, it is not mentioned that the former are restrictions of the latter, and the latter are extensions of the former.
  5. Assignments to the old and the new variables at f(phi) are considered separately, and their numbers are summed.

2a:

General miss: Only a minority of the students paid attention that the number of ALL subsets of U is |V|, and hence, listing of all the subsets is polynomial in |V| and is easy to execute.
  1. An algorithm for generating all subsets of U of size k is not provided. Nothing to say on its time analysis.
  2. k is considered be a constant. (If that would be so, then a polynomial algorithm would exist even for VC itself.)
  3. No explanation why the (correct) formula for the number of subsets of U of size k is polynomial.
  4. (log|V|)^{log|V|} is NOT O(|V|), and even is not polynomial in |V|. It is (2^ {loglog|V|})^{log|V|}, that is (2^ {log|V|})^{loglog|V|}, that is |V|^{loglog|V|}.
  5. Only subsets of U of size exactly k are related to.
  6. The algorithm for checking whether a vertex subset is a vertex cover of G is not described or referenced.

Final assignment grades and appeals
Your final assignment component grade should now be visible in the submission system. The final grade is the average of your best 5 out of 6 assignments (or best 4 out of 5 if you were exempt from an assignment etc.) averages are rounded up. The assignment grades used to calculate your final assignment grade component will appear under "grader notes". If you believe your grade is incorrect, you must appeal by 16/07/2015, appeals past this date will not be accepted.

You may appeal if:

  • Assignment grades do not match those in the submission system.
  • Only one of two partners in a digitally submitted assignment has the correct grade - such appeals will only be accepted if both partners ID# appear on the digitally submitted assignment.

You may not appeal if:
  • An assignment grade is incorrect, but you did not submit that assignment digitally.
  • Your grade is missing from the submission system.
  • You believe the assignment grade that appears in the submission system is incorrect for some reason.
Such appeals may be discarded without reply.

Appeals for your assignment component grade should be submitted to the course e-mail by 16/07/2015.

Assignment 5 and 6 appeals may be submitted until 16/07/2015 according to the usual appeal procedure.

Students whose appeal for assignment 5/6 is accepted will be allowed an addition appeal period for their assignment component grade.

Assignment grades and the submission system.
If you have not submitted your assignment digitally, your assignment grade will not appear in the submission system, or may appear as 0. A complete record of assignment grades along with your "assignment component" grade will be published shortly after assignment 6 is returned and you will be able to see your recorded grade there.

You will be able to appeal your "assignment component" grade for one week after its publication, you may appeal this grade only if recorded grades in the submission system differ from those in your "assignment component" grade. Hence corrections will not be made to the grades of assignments that have not been digitally submitted.

Please remember that:

  • All appeals regarding assignment grades must be submitted within one week of grade publication.
  • Grade corrections will not be made beyond the appeal deadline.
  • Correction of incorrectly registered grades is considered an appeal (i.e. "my paper says X but the submission system says Y!")
  • Assignments that have not been submitted digitally are ineligible for appeal.

If you have not submitted your assignment digitally, please do not contact the course mailbox requesting grade clarifications.

Dinitz correctness proof as given in Michal's lecture today, 2/6/15
Dear students,

Please review this proof.

For those of you who feel somewhat discouraged, note that it usually takes a second and third read in order to fully comprehend a complex proof such as this.

Good luck, Michal

published on 02/06/2015 19:51:27 by Michal Shemesh
For the group of prof. Dinitz – Blocking flows
As we saw in the lecture, the flow f’ at the end of the phase blocks each path from s to t in the layered network L_f built at the beginning of the phase. There, a path is blocked if it contains at least one saturated edge. Let us relate that to what was said (equivalently) at the other groups.

In the other groups, the lecturers related to flow g=f’-f. It is a flow in network L_f with capacities as in N_f, which blocks the paths as above. It is easy to see (based on the statement proved at the second lecture on flows) that the above blocking properties of f’ and of g are equivalent:

f’(e) equals c(e) ←> f(e)+g(e) equals c(e) ←> g(e) equals c(e) - f(e) equals c_f(e)

Moreover in the other groups, the algorithm of finding a blocking flow g in L_f with capacities as in N_f was a separate module of algorithm Dinitz, after which f’ was defined as f+g. Such a flow g (זרימה חוסמת) was found by the *greedy* version of algorithm Ford and Fulkerson which never decreases flows in edges, up to saturating all paths from s to t.

It may be shown that the phase of algorithm Dinitz as studied in the group of prof. Dinitz uses *exactly* the same augmenting paths (מסלולי שיפור) and the same flows along them as in the above greedy algorithm, resulting in the same flow f’=f+g.

Practically in home works and in exams, if you would see a blocking flow g, relate to it as to f’-f, where f’ is the flow built at the end of the phase. When relating to a phase in your answers, it may be appropriate to mention only flow f at the beginning of the phase and flow f’ built as the result of the phase, avoiding mentioning blocking flow g, if wished. For better sure, write for checkers that you are from the group of prof. Dinitz, where f’, not g was blocking.

Ran's lactures next weeks (groups 2 and 4)
Dear Students,

To bridge a gap between my groups and the other groups I'll add an hour to my next week first lacture on both groups 2 and 4.
Thus, for group 2, Sunday's lecture will begin at 09:00 instead of 10:00 and for group 4, Monday's class will begin at 09:00 instead of 10:00.
Classes will end at 12:00 as usual.
I hope the extra hour will be held in the regular class but I didn't get a confirmation on that yet so please follow the announcements here before class.

The above lectures will be the last lectures given by me.
Beginning of Tuesday's lecture and for the rest of the semester Michal Shemesh will return to be the lecturer of group 2 lectures and Uri Stemmer will be the lecturer of group 4. Both will begin at the same point.

Good Luck in the midterm!

טיפול משמעתי עקב חשד להעתקה
במהלך בדיקת עבודה 1, נתגלו מספר מקרים של חשד להעתקה, מקרים אלו יועברו לטיפולה של וועדת המשמעת. בגין עבירת העתקה וועדת משמעת רשאית לפסוק ציון 0 בקורס ואף הרחקה מהלימודים.

עבודות 2 ו-3 נמצאות עדיין בתהליך בדיקה, סטודנטים המעוניינים להימנע משימוע בפני וועדת משמעת בגין העתקה בעבודות הללו רשאים למשוך את הגשתן ע"י העברת פרטיהם לתיבת הדוא"ל של הקורס במהלך 24 השעות הקרובות. פניות מאוחרות יותר לא תיעננה, משיכת הגשת עבודה תגרור ציון 0 בעבודה.

שימו לב כי וועדת המשמעת אינה מבדילה בין "מעתיק" ל"מועתק", סטודנטים שהגישו עבודה זהה או דומה ישאו באותה האחריות.

שינויים בקבוצות ההרצאה של רן, 2 ו-4 ,מחר, יום שלישי, 27.04.15
סטודנטים יקרים

:עקב צרידות לא אוכל ללמד מחר את שתי הקבוצות.

  • ההרצאה של 8:00-10:00 מבוטלת מחר
  • ההרצאה בין השעות 10-12 תתקיים כמתוכנן בכתה הרגילה - 35/212
  • הרצאת השלמה תתקיים ביום חמישי, 30.04, בין השעות 14-16 בכיתה 210 בניין 32
  • שתי ההרצאות יהיו זהות לחלוטין כך שניתן להגיע לכל אחת מהן ללא קשר לשיעור בו השתתפתם ביום ראשון או שני. על אף כן, עקב צפיפות, הסטודנטים של השעה שמונה בבוקר מתבקשים לעשות מאמץ ולהגיע להרצאה ביום חמישי
  • גם הסטודגטים של השעה 10 שיגיעו ביום חמישי ירוויחו הרצאה פחות צפופה ויוכלו להפיק ממנה יותר!
  • במידה והצרידות תחמיר ולא אוכל לקיים גם את ההרצאה של השעה 10:00 מחר תופיע הודעה באתר עד השעה 8:30 בבוקר מחר והרצאת השלמה תתואם בהמשך

    קבלו התנצלותי על אי הנוחות

    Assignment delay requests
    While the course staff works hard to reply to all requests in a timely manner, it may often take 24-48 hours for us to reply. Assignment delay requests sent less than 24 hours prior to the deadline may not always be addressed before the assignment is due. Therefore if you have not yet received a reply to your delay request, please submit your assignment on time.

    If you do not submit your assignment on time, and your delay request is not granted, you will receive a zero grade for that assignment.

    KRUSKAL(G = (V,E),w):
    1 B = ∅
    2 F <- E ordered by increasing weights of the edges.
    3 foreach v ∈ V:
    3.1   MAKE-SET(v)
    4 while(|B|<|V|-1)
    4.1  e=(u, v) <- edge with minimum weight in F:
    4.2  F <- F\{e}
    4.3  if FIND-SET(u) ≠ FIND-SET(v):
    4.3.1       B = B ∪ {e}
    4.3.2       UNION(u, v)
    5 return T = (V,B)

    חוקיות: לפי הנחת האינדוקציה, הפעילויות באולם הזה שכבר תוזמנו לא מתנגשות. לפי סדר המעבר על הפעילויות, כאשר הפעילות האחרונה שתוזמנה כבר הסתימה, כל הפעילויות שתוזמנו בו כבר הסתיימו. לכן אין התנגשות בין הפעילות החדשה וכל כל הפעילויות שתוזמנו באולם זה.
