Here is a link to the original Ford and Fulkerson paper. It should be a resonable read. The decision tree demo code from tomorrow' class is here. Read the comments carefully. Finally, check the calendar for recent changes.

Check this recording of class 16 from Monday for those who may not be able to attend the class. Keep in mind, this is a short version which only focuses on essential ideas. I will include a quick recap on Wednesday.

Note the updated upload guide. Again, the internal checkpoint is highly recommended. In particular investigate the issue raised there, what's the deal with digraphs? Note also the 2nd long term stater (8) which places the graph library out of the way.

Check the changes needed to support an optional weight property. These changes assume a successful internal checkpoint. Also, note the change in wording in the previous post.

Check the updated upload guide for this week. I highly recommend doing an internal checkpoint first.
Note the actionable state for weight support is when an optional item *is specified*. Check the 2nd language demo to see how to write idiomatically (always the same way). Recall, an actionable state is one which if true leads to actions (otherwise noting happens), it may involve a specific value of a var. We always test for it the same way to make code: a) more readable, b) familiar, and c) clarify logic specified by algorithm.
