How to get the archive password

So, as I’ve stated in the introductory post, my goal is to provide these discussions as a resource for CS Educators (or researchers, I suppose.  But it’s really done from an educational point of view).  What I’m not interested in doing is providing solutions to people’s homeworks.  There’s enough of that out on the internet already.

On the other hand, as someone who is- shall we say- not unfamiliar with procrastination, I know that it’s pretty likely that people will be designing assignments on a short timeframe, and thus asking me for a password to look at each post when you need to see it right now isn’t very helpful.  I’m also aware that password-protecting each post will make it less likely people will bother to look here.  I’m not doing this for fame and fortune, but it would be nice to not scare off everyone from reading here.

My solution is to just password-protect entries that are not on the first page.  I’ll also only put passwords on problems that are not already solved in the G&J book.  That way, everyone gets to see the 20 or so entries on the front page, to see what this is about, to use for assignments or whatever.  But then as time goes on, the older posts will be replaced by newer ones, and as they go back into the archives, you’ll need a password to see them.  Hopefully that has some of the best of both worlds.

My plan is to give out passwords freely to anyone who has a legitimate use (my picture is CS faculty at other schools, but if other types of people are interested, that’s fine).  If you’d like the password, please send me email, remove the extra “@” sign, and include in the email some way of showing you’re a teacher and not a student (a link to your faculty page at your school, for example).  I’ll do my best to get back to you as soon as I can.

  11. Hi, Im a student at UT, Arlington. I need the password for study purposes.

    • I don’t really want to give it to people who are using it just to do homeworks and stuff. If you’re a grad student and need it for research or something similar, let me know and we can try to figure something out

  12. Hi, I am student of University of Florida. I am working on a paper of solving Karp’s classic NP problems and your password would be great help.

    • I don’t really want to give out the password to students because I don’t want it to be a resource for homework solutions.

      One possibility would be for you to get a professor to contact me and tell me that it’s for research..

  13. I´m a professor of computer science at UNISC, a brazilian university. Could I have a password?

  14. Hi, I’m a PhD student at UCL (England), I’d use this resource as part of my research and to improve my understanding (no homework!), I’d really appreciate the password to access more articles. Thanks!

  15. Hi,
    I am a Graduate student in Memorial University. I will like to explore interesting topics here for my project. I would appreciate it if you give me access.

    • Do you mean a project for a class? I don’t really want to give out the password for those kinds of things. One possibility would be to have your professor or advisor contact me and let me know it’s ok.

  16. Yes I am class project. I am suppose to present a project topic with its problem, input, and output today. I found sometime on solving parity games. I think I will work with that.

    Thanks for replying.

  17. Hi Sean,

    I am a professor of Algorithms Design at the Estácio de Sá university in Brazil. The password to this site will be of great help.


  18. Hi,
    I’m an early year CS PhD student at Stevens Institute, I’m currently building up my fundamental backgrounds for my research topics (definitely not for my homework though), could I have the password for more articles on this site please?
    Thank you! (I attached my personal website here)

    Best Regards

  19. I am a doctoral student at the University of Tsukuba, Japan. Could you please send me the password? The web page of my lab is
    Thank you for all the resource, it really helps me a lot.

  20. Hi, Could you please send me the password?

  21. Hello.
    I work at my thesis atm. The topic is running-time-analysis of selected NP-complete problems. Exact and approximate solution vs transformation in SAT instances and solving the problems via SAT-Solvers.
    I read the book Garey/Johnson-Computers and Intractability.
    I’m interested esp. in GP15 and wish to read more about it.
    I dont need access to cheat or something. Just for the understanding. I can do the rest on my own. It would be helpful to get access for the page where GP15 is discussed. I’d like to analyse the problem, because it seems interesting and so far I dont hear about it.

    Thank you!
