There are five questions for 100 total points. Most are based on lectures 12-15, and thus on Chapter 6 of the Adler notes. Question 1 is based on lectures 8-11 (Chapter 5). Many of these problems, like much of Adler's Chapter 6, are taken from Randomized Algorithms by Motwani and Raghavan.

Students are responsible for understanding and following the academic honesty policies indicated on the course main page.
