A2 design question tips + deadline

Regarding the two design problems: the problem statements have been made quite concise with no constraints to enable you to come up with the solution! For example, I did not specify how your algorithm will perform in relation to known ones. So, in sorting, you can do it in worse n log n. Also, I did not specify how your algorithm will be invoked. For example, in sorting again you can load all the data first then do the sorting later on and you do not have to sort the whole data, it might just sort portions of the data that the client code will request access to etc.. For balancing a binary search tree, a randomized approach should involve rolling a dice among a set of balancing options and balancing the part that comes out and consequently analyzing the effect of that. That's just one approach. We will accept submissions of the assignment from Dec 15th 11:50PM to Dec 22nd 11:50PM!

Hardware Threads in Specs

Please be careful, in the Intel specs I have used in class, a thread is seen as a "logical core" and not as Software threads. Each physical core has 2 logical cores. We'll talk about Software threads in the OS course.

Quizzes

Don't forget: you have 6 quizzes during lectures every week starting Lecture 2.

Featured in:

Comparing polygons

one issue that arises from using java.awt.Polygon is that it does not implement the comparable interface, which will hinder your effort to sort a column of type Polygon. To solve this problem, define your own class that will internally retrieve the points from the passed Polygon. In that class, you can implement the interface comparable and consequently, you will need to add the method compareTo. To compare polygons, you can use the bounding box to get the enclosing rectangle and use the area of the rectangle, as follows: Dimension dim = poly1.getBounds( ).getSize( ); nThisArea = dim.width * dim.height;
