CS5014 Fall 2006 Assignment 10
For this assignment, you will write a literature review that includes
brief descriptions for at least five papers.
These five papers should be relevent to your graduate research topic.
They may include the papers that you used for earlier assignments (the

Your review section should be 2 1/2 to 3 pages, using the general format
from Assignment 2. You should use the first two pages or so to summarize
