Lect 18: Greedy Algorithms

Today we started with greedy algorithms and we looked at the interval scheduling problem. We also looked at four potential greedy algorithm and saw that all but the algorithm that schedules the task with the earliest finish time first do not produce optimal schedules. On Monday, Jesse will prove the correctness of the algorithm. All this material is from Section 4.1 in the book.

The slides and notes for the lecture have been uploaded.
