MCS-378 Homework 3, Fall 1999

Due: October 13, 1999

  1. Consider parallel parking along downtown streets. In some parts of town, there are white lines painted on the pavement, perpendicular to the curb and spaced at regular intervals. Each pair of consecutive lines marks one parking space. In other parts of town, there are no painted lines, and so each driver simply parks wherever there is room. Which kind of fragmentation is each part of town subject to? Explain. (Fragmentation of tail lights doesn't count.)

  2. Do exercise 10.9 from page 341.

  3. Do exercise 10.11 from page 342.
