midsemester grades

We made a mistake when computing midsemester grades. Specifically, we used the wrong values for the programming portion of snakes. If you did substantially better (resp. worse) on the programming portion of snakes than on expression trees, then your midsemester grade will be higher (resp. lower) than the one on the HUB. If you did about the same on both assignments, your grade probably won't change. Sorry for the mistake. You can come to my office hours on Thurs if you want to see if your grade changed.

Compression Theory Assignment Correction

A mistake that made the LZW problem on HW3 (Compression) theory impossible to solve has been fixed (the first two given values in the compressed array should be 9 and 10, instead of 8 and 9). Please reload the TEX file if you have already downloaded it. Sorry for any inconvenience.
