Balbir's log 1st March 2007

  1. Read a very interesting algorithm called the Ford-Johnson method for sorting. I ended up opening Knuth's Volume 3: Sorting and Searching and reading through his quite amazing illustration and explanation of the method.

  2. Read through the introduction in the Algorithms book by Papadimitriou, See my post on a fun way to multiply numbers
  3. Played around with the python programming language after a big break
