Assignment 2

The assignment is done in groups of two students. After the assignment has been accomplished, please demonstrate it to some of the assistants. After the assistant has verified the functionality and the source codes of your implementation, you are free to leave. Before leaving, please send your source codes with the group ID and the list of the group members with contact information by email to: erkki.harjula@ee.oulu.fi.

The assistants are available until 18:00, but you can continue after that as well. If you finish your assignment after 18:00, you can demonstrate the functionality next day.
