Hi all.

I have made my slides available in subversion here:
In a few days I will secure this directory such that it is accessible to registered students only. Yet another reason for you to make sure to get an RBG account and sent me your group data...

In general please use the slides only for the purpose of this lecture and do not distribute them outside the university.

Futher information about Myers' algorithm can be found on the web. This page here, for instance, gives a good tutorial:

Best wishes,
Eric

Ehm.... regarding the exercise and following task: "Hand in a drawing of the edit graph"

drawing is the same as a screenshot with the tool from the tutorial, isn't it?

Well, you could of course use the tool to generate a drawing. However, I strongly suggest that you use the tool only for your general understanding and rather really try to construct the diagram from hand. This should give you a much deeper understanding of the algorithm. After all, this is a perfect exercise for a final exam and the purpose of the weekly exercises is to help you prepare for the exam

(To be clear: It's ok to submit a screenshot if you feel you have to, but try a manual construction on paper, too, so that you understand how the algorithm works.)

On this tutorial page: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/recipes/D ... eading0006

How do I read Figure 3, I don't get it? Why does the explanation start with k=-3?
