1. Tom hates to wait at stop signs, yield signs and traffic signals while driving. To minimize
this aggravation, he has prepared maps of the various regions in which he frequently
drives, and measured the average delay (in seconds) at each of the various intersections
in these regions. He wants to find a route from location 2 to 4 which minimizes his delay
at intersections (regardless of the total distance he has to drive to avoid delays). The
details of his map are listed below:

2. Consider the following system of difference constraints.
x1 − x2 ≤ 1
x1 − x4 ≤ −4
x2 − x3 ≤ 2
x2 − x5 ≤ 7
x2 − x6 ≤ 5
x3 − x6 ≤ 10
x4 − x2 ≤ 2
x5 − x1 ≤ −1
x5 − x4 ≤ 3
x6 − x3 ≤ −8
Model it as a constraint graph and use Bellman-Ford algorithm to find a feasible solution,
or determine that no feasible solution exists.

3. CFS want to transfer oil from its plant to Calgary. The major challenge in oil transmission
is to prevent pressure loss. So some pumps are used to increase pressure through several
pipelines without any loss if the oil through it is within its capacity. Any oil beyond
its capacity will be lost. Moreover each pipeline among pumps has a certain capacity
too. You are asked to find out the maximum amount of oil that can be transmitted
throughout the network so that no oil loss occurs. The information on the available
pumps and pipes is listed below:

• Your solution must reach your instructor or the TA by or before the due date.
• You, or your reliable friend must give your work to the TA hand-to-hand or deliver at class to
• If you use some software to reach a solution, provide explanations.
