Assignment 11 -- Due Tuesday, November 20
(at the ***beginning* of lab)

CS 4521 Fall Semester, 2012

20 Points

**
Topic: Implementation of Fibonacci Heaps
**
**
The assignment
**
consists of two parts:

**Part 1:** (15 points) Implementation of Fibonacci Heaps.

**Part 2:** (5 points) Fibonacci Heap exercises.

For Part 2, write code and that implements Fibonacci heap operations as
described in Chapter 19 of the text. Implementing Fibonacci heaps will
require coding the operations:

- MAKE-FIB-HEAP (a constructor in C++)
- FIB-HEAP-INSERT
- FIB-HEAP-MINIMUM
- FIB-HEAP-EXTRACT-MIN
- FIB-HEAP-UNION (not required - extra credit)

Much of the code is provided for you. You need to supply code for
FIB-HEAP-EXTRACT-MIN - consolidate() in particular.
You can use a modified version of the command interpreter
for binary heaps (in Assignment 4); as in that assignment,
`i`,
`m`, and
`e`
insert, return the minimum key value, and extract the minimum.
Also, a routine to show the structure of your Fibonacci heap is supplied
for you.

#### Test Example

The test files are the same as for binary heaps. The correct output
for `heaptest1` is at:
`out1.txt`.
** Helpful code: **
Here is a
.h file for the Fibonacci Heap (FibHeap) class
`fibheap.h`.
and skeleton code for the BHeap class implementation
`fibheap.cpp`.
Here is a command interpreter:
`cmdint.cpp`.
Here is a "Makefile" that puts it all together:
`Makefile`.
When you download these files, be sure to remove the ".txt" suffixes
(by moving them to the same file name without the ".txt").

#### What To Hand In

Hand in a copy of your code and the output of the test files
(15 points):
Identify them clearly and **draw in the links between nodes** printed by
the `ShowHeap()` operation.
Also hand in the following:

- Exercise 19.2-1 (4 points), page 518.
- Read Problem 19-2 pages 527-529, then write a statement saying
"I have read Problem 19-2." on the homework you turn in (1 point).

### Extra Credit (up to 6 points)

Implement the union, decrease-key, and delete operations, and test them with
test files that show those operations work correctly. To do this, you
should also implement a search(k) operation that returns a pointer, x,
to the node with key k. Then to test decrease-key
in your command interpreter,
first search for the original key value k-orig with
search(k-orig) to get x, then call decrease-key(x, k-new) where k-new
is the decreased value of the key. Similarly, to test delete for
a node with
key value k, first search(k) to get x, and then call delete(x).
