- Programming should be done in a compiled and typed language
such as C,C++, Fortran, Java.
MATLAB and scripting languages are not allowed except
for displaying results.
Julia, a just-in-time compiled language, with syntax similar to MATLAB, may be used, but types and data structures must be specified as if the language was traditionally compiled. The built-in graphics and other functions similar to MATLAB make this a useful language to learn in addition to traditional compiled ones.
- Plagiarism is a violation of the university honor code.
With respect to the solutions of programming problems in the homework, it is not acceptable to engage in plagiarism. You may discuss the programming problems with each other but any significant discussion must cited, i.e., it should be treated like the citation of any outside material used in your solutions. Such a citation must include names and the substance of the discussion. All students must design and implement their own code. All students must write individually the description of the code, its complexity, the experimental design, the empirical results and the interpretation of the results. No student should provide any portion of their code to any other student in class. If you find a library code (not written by a student in class) that performs a portion of the task it must be cited -- including the specific source of the code and its function. You are still responsible for describing correctly its implementation and time/space complexity in your solutions. Credit for the program will be prorated based on the amount of functionality performed by a cited library code relative to the functionality required to solve the assigned problem. The first offense of submitting a solution without the appropriate citation will result in 0 credit for the programming/experimental portion of the assignment. Multiple offenses may result in referral to the university for discipline according to university regulations.
- Programming assignment solutions related to codes and their design and testing
should conform to the format and approach described in
Note on Reporting Programming Assignment Results.
An example assignment and solution can be found here
and here. A second example solution can be found here
Solutions to the analytical problems included in a programming assignment should
be written in a manner similar to the homework solutions provided for FCM 1 and 2.
