Meaning of 'Full iteration' in HW #5, problem #7
 
This is really the same question I asked earlier about problem #5:
does the initial guess count as the first or the zero'th (full) iteration?

An iteration takes a parameter vector and produces another, so the initialization (choosing {\bf w}(0) in case the parameters are weights) is not an iteration, just the starting point of the first iteration that results in {\bf w}(1).
