Assignment 2

COMP9021, Trimester 2, 2020

1. General matters

1.1. Aim. The main purpose of the assignment is to:

? develop your problem solving skills;

? write a medium sized Python program;

? design and implement an interface based on the desired behaviour of an application program;

? work with classes.

1.2. Submission. Your programs will be stored in a file named frieze.py. After you have developed and

tested your program, upload it using Ed (unless you worked directly in Ed). Assignments can be submitted

more than once; the last version is marked. Your assignment is due by August 9, 8:00pm.

1.3. Assessment. The assignment is worth 13 marks. It is going to be tested against a number of inputs. For

each test, the automarking script will let your program run for 30 seconds.

Late assignments will be penalised: the mark for a late submission will be the minimum of the awarded mark

and 13 minus the number of full and partial days that have elapsed from the due date.

The outputs of your programs should be exactly as indicated.

1.4. Reminder on plagiarism policy. You are permitted, indeed encouraged, to discuss ways to solve the

assignment with other people. Such discussions must be in terms of algorithms, not code. But you must

implement the solution on your own. Submissions are routinely scanned for similarities that occur when students

copy and modify other people’s work, or work very closely together on a single implementation. Severe penalties

apply.

2. General presentation

You will design and implement a program that will

? check whether some numbers, stored in a file, represent a particular coding of a frieze, and

? – either display the period of the pattern of the frieze and the transformations that keep it invariant,

based on a result that classifies friezes into 7 groups of symmetries,

– or output some Latex code in a file, from which a pictorial representation of the frieze can be

produced.

The representation of a frieze is based on a coding with numbers in the range 0 …15, each such number n being

associated with a particular point p such that

? if the rightmost digit of the representation of n in base 2 is equal to 1 then p is to be connected to its

northern neighbour:

? if the second rightmost digit of the representation of n in base 2 is equal to 1 then p is to be connected

to its north-eastern neighbour:

? if the third rightmost digit of the representation of n in base 2 is equal to 1 then p is to be connected

to its eastern neighbour:

? if the fourth rightmost digit of the representation of n in base 2 is equal to 1 then p is to be connected

to its south-eastern neighbour:

4. Detailed description

4.1. Input. The input is expected to consist of height + 1 lines of length + 1 numbers in {0, ..., 15}, where

length is at least equal to 4 and at most equal to 50 and height is at least equal to 2 and at most equal to 16,

with possibly lines consisting of spaces only that will be ignored and with possibly spaces anywhere on the lines

with numbers. The x

th number n of the y

th

line, with 0 ≤ x ≤ length and 0 ≤ y ≤ height,

? is to be associated with a point situated x ? 0.2 cm to the right and y? 0.2 cm below an origin,

? is to be connected to the point 0.2 cm above if the rightmost digit of n is 1,

? is to be connected to the point 0.2 cm above and 0.2 cm to the right if the second rightmost digit of n

is 1,

? is to be connected to the point 0.2 cm to the right if the third rightmost digit of n is 1, and

? is to be connected to the point 0.2 cm to the right and 0.2 cm below if the fourth rightmost digit of n

is 1.

To qualify as a frieze, the input is further constrained to fit in a rectangle of length length ? 0.2 cm and of

height heigth ? 0.2 cm, with horizontal lines of length length at the top and at the bottom, identical vertical

borders at both ends, no crossing segments connecting pairs of neighbours inside the rectangle, and a pattern

of integral period at least equal to 2 that is fully repeated at least twice in the horizontal dimension.

4.2. Output. Consider executing from the Python prompt the statement from frieze import * followed

by the statement frieze = Frieze(some_filename). In case some_filename does not exist in the working

directory, then Python will raise a FileNotFoundError exception, that does not need to be caught. Assume

that some_filename does exist (in the working directory). If the input is incorrect in that it does not contain

only numbers in {0, . . . , 15} besides spaces, or in that it contains either too few or too many lines of numbers,

or in that some line of numbers contains too many or too few numbers, or in that two of its lines of numbers

do not contain the same number of numbers, then the effect of executing frieze = Frieze(some_filename)

should be to generate a FriezeError exception that reads

Traceback (most recent call last):

...

frieze.FriezeError: Incorrect input.

If the previous conditions hold but the further conditions spelled out above for the input to qualify as a frieze do

not hold, then the effect of executing frieze = Frieze(some_filename) should be to generate a FriezeError

exception that reads

Traceback (most recent call last):

...

frieze.FriezeError: Input does not represent a frieze.

If the input is correct and represents a frieze, then executing frieze = Frieze(some_filename) followed by

frieze.analyse() should have the effect of outputting one or two lines that read

Pattern is a frieze of period N that is invariant under translation only.

or

Pattern is a frieze of period N that is invariant under translation

and vertical reflection only.

or

Pattern is a frieze of period N that is invariant under translation

and horizontal reflection only.

or

Pattern is a frieze of period N that is invariant under translation

and glided horizontal reflection only.

or

Pattern is a frieze of period N that is invariant under translation

and rotation only.

or

10

Pattern is a frieze of period N that is invariant under translation,

glided horizontal and vertical reflections, and rotation only.

or

Pattern is a frieze of period N that is invariant under translation,

horizontal and vertical reflections, and rotation only.

with N an appropriate integer at least equal to 2.

These 7 possible outputs are based on a mathematical result on the classification of friezes that lists all

possible complete lists of symmetries that leave a frieze invariant under an isometry (that is, a transformation

that does not alter the distance between any two points). These possible lists involve 5 symmetries.

? Translation by period; of course, any frieze is invariant under this symmetry.

? Vertical reflection about some vertical line; that line does not necessarily delimit the pattern nor does

it necessarily go through its middle (these conditions are actually equivalent).

? Horizontal reflection about the line that goes through the middle of the frieze.

? Glided horizontal reflection, that is, horizontal reflection about the line that goes through the middle

of the frieze and translation by half the period of the resulting lower half of the frieze.

? Rotation around some point situated on the horizontal line that goes through the middle of the frieze;

this is equivalent to horizontal refection combined with vertical reflection.

Pay attention to the expected format, including spaces.

If the input is correct and represents a frieze, then executing frieze = Frieze(some_filename) followed

by frieze.display() should have the effect of producing a file named some_filename.tex that can be given

as argument to pdflatex to generate a file named some_filename.pdf. The provided examples will show you

what some_filename.tex should contain. Segments are drawn in purple with a single draw command for each

longest segment,

? starting with the vertical segments, from the topmost leftmost one to the bottommost rightmost one

with the leftmost ones first,

? followed by the segments that go from north west to south east, from the topmost leftmost one to the

bottommost rightmost one with the topmost ones first,

? followed by the segments that go from west to east, from the topmost leftmost one to the bottommost

rightmost one with the topmost ones first,

? followed by the segments that go from the south west to the north east, from the topmost leftmost one

to the bottommost rightmost one with the topmost ones first.

Pay attention to the expected format, including spaces and blank lines. Lines that start with % are comments;

there are 4 such lines, that have to be present even when there is no item to be displayed of the kind described

by the comment. The output of your program redirected to a file will be compared with the expected output

saved in a file (of a different name of course) using the diff command. For your program to pass the associated

test, diff should silently exit, which requires that the contents of both files be absolutely identical, character for

character, including spaces and blank lines. When testing locally, check your program on the provided examples

using the associated .tex files, renaming them as they have the names of the files expected to be generated by

your program.
