Lect 20: Scheduling to minimize lateness

In today’s lecture, we studied a scheduling problem where one has flexibility in when to schedule a job but one is interested in minimizing the maximum time by which a scheduling job overshot its deadline. Next lecture, we will start proving the correctness of the greedy algorithm we saw in class today. The material will be from Sec 4.2 in the textbook.

The slides have been uploaded.

Below are links to the student blog post(s) for the lecture:
