Next week, we will work on problems related to dynamic programming, which can be viewed as a combination of complete search and greedy algorithms. This technique will be necessary to solve Challenge 11 and Challenge 12.


The readings for this week are:

  1. Competitive Programmer's Handbook

    • Chapter 7 Dynamic Programming

  2. A graphical introduction to dynamic programming



Once you have done the readings, answer the following Reading 06 Quiz questions:
