Evaluation Events

Assignments will require you to implement variations of the studied algorithms, to apply these to optimization problems, perform empirical comparisons of the algorithms, and then to write and submit a technical report. The technical report will contain all details of what you have done, your results, and a discussion of these results. Only the technical reports will be evaluated.
