Basic knowledge of Python generators (which, in turn, build on the more basic notion of Python iterators) will be relevant for the MPyC programming assignment later on. To this end, take a look at the basic example in the Python tutorial, and at the advanced use of Python generators in the interactive Jupyter notebook for binary pebbling (or, look at this notebook as non-interactive html page).

Written exam: Friday April 20, 2018, 13.30-16.30h; resit: Tuesday July 3, 2018, 18.00-21.00h.
