Problem Set 3 Posted

Problem Set 3 is due Thursday March 20 at 11:59PM. See the Problem
Sets page. We recommend at least thinking about the problems involving
heaps, because heaps are covered on the Quiz. Specifically, that would
be the exercises from chapter 6, and problems 1 and 2a.

Problem Set 2 Correction

There was a bug in problem 3d. The problem said to use linear probing,
assuming simple uniform hashing. This makes the problem hard. Instead,
the probem should say "assume uniform hashing". The PDF has been
corrected on the Problem
Sets page.
