1678A - Tokitsukaze and All Zero Sequence

Idea: tokitsukaze

Prepare: tokitsukaze

**Tutorial**

We observe that when there is $$$0$$$ in the sequence, it is optimal to choose $$$0$$$ and any number other than $$$0$$$ for each operation.

Therefore, when there is $$$0$$$ in the sequence, let $$$cnt$$$ be the number of $$$0$$$s, the answer is $$$n - cnt$$$.

Otherwise, when $$$0$$$ does not exist in the sequence, there are two situations:

When there exist two equal numbers in the sequence, we can perform the operation $$$1$$$ time to convert it into the situation of having $$$0$$$ in the sequence. So the answer must be $$$n$$$.

When all numbers in the sequence are distinct, we can perform the operation $$$2$$$ times to convert it into the situation of having $$$0$$$ in the sequence. So the answer must be $$$n + 1$$$.

**Solution**

```
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
int main(){
int t;
scanf("%i",&t);
while(t--){
int n;
scanf("%i",&n);
vector<int> a(n);
for(int i=0;i<n;i++)
scanf("%i",&a[i]);
sort(a.begin(),a.end());
int zero=count(a.begin(),a.end(),0);
if(zero>0)
printf("%i\n",n-zero);
else{
bool same=false;
for(int i=1;i<n;i++)
if(a[i]==a[i-1])
same=true;
if(same)printf("%i\n",n);
else printf("%i\n",n+1);
}

**Tutorial(greedy)**

Obviously, the operation is, for each pair of adjacent and unequal characters, change both of them to $$$0$$$ or $$$1$$$. In other words, the string is divided into many adjacent binaries with length of $$$2$$$. If the binary is "01" or "10", it needs $$$1$$$ operation, otherwise the operation is not required.

If you want to minimize the number of "contiguous segments", a simple greedy way is to change each "binary requiring operation" (i.e. $$$01$$$ or $$$10$$$) into the form of the previous or next "binary requiring no operation" (i.e. $$$11$$$ or $$$00$$$). For example: "0010" change to "0000" and "1101" change to "1111". In this way, this "binary requiring operation" has no contribution to the final number of contiguous segments. We only need to count the number of contiguous "11" and "00" binaries.

In particular, if all binaries are "01" or "10", the final contribution to the number of final contiguous segments is $$$1$$$ in total.

**Tutorial(DP)**

Obviously, the operation is, for each pair of adjacent and unequal characters, change both of them to $$$0$$$ or $$$1$$$. In other words, the string is divided into many adjacent binaries with length of $$$2$$$.

Consider the recursion from the front to the back, it can be observed that the previously maintained prefix must end with "00" or "11". Therefore, it's necessary to convert each divided binary into "00" or "11" by enumerating the cost of changing the current binary into "00" and "11". Maintain the minimum number of operations in the process of DP, try to make the current string consistent with the end of the prefix subsegment.

$$$dp[n][2]$$$, set the first dimension as the maintained length of prefix and the second dimension as the suffix state of the prefix.

Then the DP transfer equation is:

where $$$c_k$$$ represents the cost of converting the current binary to "kk".

1677A - Tokitsukaze and Strange Inequality

Idea: tokitsukaze

Prepare: tokitsukaze

**Tutorial**

We can calculate the answer in two steps.

The first step, for each $$$b$$$, let $$$f_b$$$ represents the number of $$$p_d$$$ where $$$p_b > p_d$$$ in the interval $$$[b+1,n]$$$. We can calculate $$$f$$$ in $$$\mathcal{O}(n^2)$$$.

The second step, calculate the answer. First we enumerate $$$c$$$ from $$$1$$$ to $$$n$$$, and then enumerate $$$a$$$ from $$$1$$$ to $$$c-1$$$. When $$$p_a < p_c$$$, add $$$f_b$$$ in the interval $$$[a+1,c-1]$$$ to the answer. Before enumerating $$$a $$$, we can calculate the prefix sum of $$$f$$$ first, so we can add the $$$f_b$$$ in the interval to the answer in $$$\mathcal{O}(1)$$$. The time complexity of this step is $$$\mathcal{O}(n^2)$$$. However, this will add the result of $$$d$$$ in the interval $$$[a+1,c-1]$$$ to the answer, which is illegal because $$$c < d$$$ is required. So we need to maintain $$$f$$$ while enumerating $$$c$$$: enumerate $$$b$$$ from $$$1$$$ to $$$c-1$$$, if $$$p_b > p_c$$$, $$$f_b$$$ minus $$$1$$$. $$$p_c$$$ is actually regarded as $$$p_d$$$, that is, subtract the case where $$$c$$$ is equal to $$$d$$$, so as to subtract the illegal case. The time complexity of this step is also $$$\mathcal{O}(n^2)$$$.

Time complexity:$$$\mathcal{O}(n^2)$$$.

By the way, use Fenwick Tree or Segment Tree can also pass, the time complexity is $$$\mathcal{O}(n^2 log\ n)$$$

1677B - Tokitsukaze and Meeting

Idea: funer

Prepare: tokitsukaze, funer

**Tutorial**

Obviously, we can calculate the answers of rows and columns separately.

For the answers of columns, we can observe that since there are only $$$n \cdot m$$$ students in total, no students will leave, and every time a new student entering the meeting hall, all columns will move one step to the right circularly, so the answer will not decrease. If the $$$i$$$-th student is a serious student, for all the previous students with subscript $$$j$$$ where $$$0 < j < i$$$, and $$$j \% m = i \% m$$$ are naughty students, the answer in the column will increase by $$$1$$$.

For the answer of rows, we can transfer it from the answer of $$$i-m$$$, which is equivalent to adding a new row to the answer of $$$i-m$$$. Suppose the last serious student is the $$$j$$$-th student. If $$$i-j<m$$$, the answer will increase by $$$1$$$, otherwise the answer will be the same as that of when the $$$i-m$$$ student enters the meeting hall.

1677C - Tokitsukaze and Two Colorful Tapes

Idea: qsmcgogo, winterzz1

Prepare: winterzz1

**Tutorial**

First, find the cycle directly, take out all the cycles, and then fill each cycle in the order: maximum, minimum, maximum, minimum $$$ \ldots $$$.

Note that when you encounter an odd cycle, the last one should be empty and fill in the middle value.

For example, in a ternary cycle, if the first and the second position are filled with $$$1$$$ and $$$9$$$, it can be observed that the contribution of the ternary cycle to the answer remains unchanged no matter which number between $$$2 \sim 8$$$ is filled in the middle. So this situation can be left out first, and finally fill in whatever number is left. The same to the cycles with odd sizes such as self cycles and five membered cycles, because the last number does not provide any contribution. In this way, you can directly construct a solution with the maximum $$$score$$$.

We notice that if we take out the numbers that has already been filled in each cycle and put them into a new cycled array $$$h$$$, in fact, the numbers providing contribution are only at the "peak" and "valley" points of the array. We define "peak" as the point with subscript $$$i$$$ where $$$h_{i}>h_{i-1}$$$ and $$$h_{i}>h_{i+1}$$$, and "valley" is the point with subscript $$$i$$$ where $$$h_{i}<h_{i-1}$$$ and $$$h_{i}<h_{i+1}$$$. Obviously, each "peak" will provide contribution of $$$2 \cdot h_{i}$$$, each "valley" will provide contribution of $$$-2 \cdot h_{i}$$$. For the points which are neither "peak"s nor "valley"s, they do not provide any contribution.

In order to maximize the score, we make the larger number in the permutation "peak" and the smaller number "valley". There are $$$\left \lfloor \frac{CircleSize}{2} \right \rfloor$$$ "peak"s and "valley"s for a circle with a length of $$$Circlesize$$$.

So the expression of the final answer can be derived from the summation formula of the arithmetic sequence:

Let $$$c=\sum \left \lfloor \frac{CircleSize}{2} \right \rfloor$$$, $$$N$$$ represents the size of the permutation, $$$score=2c \cdot (N-c)$$$.

1677D - Tokitsukaze and Permutations

Idea: dark_light, FreshP_0325

Prepare: dark_light

**Tutorial**

Consider finding out the relationship between sequence $$$v$$$ and permutation $$$p$$$. It can be observed that the permutation $$$p$$$ have bijective relationship with sequence $$$c$$$. That is to say, sequence $$$c$$$ will only correspond to one permutation $$$p$$$, as it can be proved:

Let $$$S={1,2,\ldots,n}$$$, and find that the last number can be determined through $$$c_n$$$, because there is no number after this position. We observe that $$$p_n$$$ is the $$$(c_n+1)$$$ largest number in $$$S$$$, then delete $$$p_n$$$ from $$$S$$$, we can get $$$p_{n - 1}$$$. So repeat the process, we can get the whole permutation.

Consider counting $$$v$$$, we observe that each bubble sort will first make $$$v_i=\max(v_{i}-1,0)$$$, then the whole $$$v$$$ moves left, $$$v_1$$$ is directly covered, $$$v_n$$$ is set to $$$0$$$. Because each valued $$$v_i$$$ is preceded by a number larger than the current position, then it will definitely be exchanged and moved forward, $$$v_i$$$ minus $$$1$$$.

For example, if the current $$$v=[0,0,2,1,1]$$$, after once bubble sort, $$$v=[0,1,0,0,0]$$$.

To avoid confusion, the $$$V$$$ array below is the $$$v$$$ in the input. It's easy to count after knowing the above conclusion.

For the position $$$i(i\le k)$$$, it can be observed that after $$$k$$$ times of bubble sort , it is directly covered, so just multiply the answer by $$$\prod_{i=1}^k i$$$.

For the position $$$i(k\lt i \le n)$$$, if $$$V_{i-k}\ne -1$$$, then obviously $$$v_i$$$ is uniquely determined; If $$$V_{i-k}=-1$$$, then $$$v_i$$$ has $$$i$$$ possible values, multiply the answer by $$$i$$$; If $$$V_{i-k}=0$$$, then $$$v_i-k\le 0$$$, multiply the answer by $$$k+1$$$.

Note that for the position $$$i(i\ge n-k+1)$$$, $$$V_i$$$ should be $$$0$$$ or $$$-1$$$, otherwise the answer must be $$$0 $$$.

Complexity:$$$\mathcal{O}(n)$$$.

1677E - Tokitsukaze and Beautiful Subsegments

Idea: Frank_DD

Prepare: Frank_DD

**Tutorial**

Let's sort the queries $$$[l,r]$$$ with $$$r$$$ in ascending order.

Let's move $$$R$$$ from $$$1$$$ to $$$n$$$, and answer queries $$$[l,r]$$$ when $$$r=R$$$.

Use segment tree to solve this problem, each leaf node $$$[ul,ul]$$$ in the segment tree maintenance the number that how many intervals $$$[ul,R]$$$ are beautiful, then answering queries is to get sum.

Use monotone stack to maintain the maximum number. When moving $$$R$$$ one step right, the monotone stack will pop some and push one.

Let's think about the number $$$x$$$ in monotone stack, which means the maximum number of the intervals $$$[lp,R]$$$ ($$$l1 \le lp \le l2$$$) is $$$x$$$. If there exist a $$$ll$$$ in $$$[l1,l2]$$$ which satisfies $$$a_{ll}*a_R=x$$$, then before $$$x$$$ is poped, intervals $$$[l,rr]$$$ are beautiful($$$l \in [l1,l2]$$$,$$$l \le ll$$$ ,$$$R \le rr$$$).

So we can assume that $$$x$$$ will not be poped when it is pushed in the monotone stack, and do something like difference algorithm in the segment tree, by using the current $$$R$$$ as the time stamp. Each node in the segment tree has to maintain $$$a*R+b$$$,which like a linear function.

So when moving $$$R$$$ right step, let's enumerate the factor of $$$a_R$$$ to update old intervals in monotone stack, enumerate the multiple of $$$a_R$$$ to update the new interval in monotone stack and update the intervals which are poped.

Time complexity: $$$\mathcal{O}(nlognlogn+qlogn)$$$.

**Tutorial**

First, consider how to calculate the contribution of a legal path. It can be found that the contribution of a legal path is equivalent to the following formula, where $$$b_i$$$ indicates the number of the $$$i$$$-th gems on the path.

This formula seems impossible to calculate, but it can be observed that there is a chain structure behind it. Consider dynamic programming, try to calculate the $$$1\sim (i+1)$$$-th gems' answer by only considering the $$$1\sim i$$$-th gems' answer. Consider maintenance these:

$$$dp_{n,1}=\sum_{i_1=0}^{b_1}\sum_{i_2=0}^{b_2}\ldots \sum_{i_n=0}^{b_n}(\sum_{j=1}^n (P^{i_j}i_j^k)\times\sum_{j=1}^n [i_j\ne 0])$$$

$$$dp_{n,2}=\sum_{i_1=0}^{b_1}\sum_{i_2=0}^{b_2}\ldots \sum_{i_n=0}^{b_n}\sum_{j=1}^n (P^{i_j}i_j^k)$$$

$$$dp_{n,3}=\sum_{i_1=0}^{b_1}\sum_{i_2=0}^{b_2}\ldots \sum_{i_n=0}^{b_n} \sum_{j=1}^n [i_j\ne 0]$$$

$$$dp_{n,4}=\sum_{i_1=0}^{b_1}\sum_{i_2=0}^{b_2}\ldots \sum_{i_n=0}^{b_n} 1$$$

It can be observed that if we enumerate how many the $$$(n + 1)$$$-th gem are selected, this can actually be transferred, for example:

$$$dp_{n+1,1}=\sum_{p=0}^{b_{n+1}}\sum_{i_1=0}^{b_1}\sum_{i_2=0}^{b_2}\ldots \sum_{i_n=0}^{b_n}((\sum_{j=1}^n P^{i_j}i_j^k+P^p p^k)\times (\sum_{j=1}^n [i_j\ne 0])+[p\ne 0])$$$

Then spread.

$$$A=\sum_{p=0}^{b_{n+1}}\sum_{i_1=0}^{b_1}\sum_{i_2=0}^{b_2}\ldots \sum_{i_n=0}^{b_n}(\sum_{j=1}^n P^{i_j}i_j^k \times \sum_{j=1}^n [i_j\ne 0])=(1+b_{n+1})dp_{n,1}$$$

$$$B=\sum_{p=0}^{b_{n+1}}\sum_{i_1=0}^{b_1}\sum_{i_2=0}^{b_2}\ldots \sum_{i_n=0}^{b_n}\sum_{j=1}^n P^{i_j}i_j^k[p\ne 0]=b_{n+1}dp_{n,2}$$$

$$$C=\sum_{p=0}^{b_{n+1}}\sum_{i_1=0}^{b_1}\sum_{i_2=0}^{b_2}\ldots \sum_{i_n=0}^{b_n}P^p p^k\times \sum_{j=1}^n [i_j\ne 0]=dp_{n,3} \times \sum_{p=0}^{b_{n+1}}P^p p^k=dp_{n,3} \times \sum_{p=1}^{b_{n+1}}P^p p^k$$$

$$$D=\sum_{p=0}^{b_{n+1}}\sum_{i_1=0}^{b_1}\sum_{i_2=0}^{b_2}\ldots \sum_{i_n=0}^{b_n}(P^p p^k)\times [p\ne 0]=dp_{n,4}\times\sum_{p=1}^{b_{n+1}}P^p p^k$$$

Now it can be transferred. The main problem is how to calculate $$$\sum_{i=1}^n i^kx^i$$$ quickly, ensuring that $$$x\gt 1$$$.

Let $$$h_{k,n}$$$ represent $$$\sum_{i=1}^n i^k x^i$$$.

Calculate the sum according to the proportional sequence, $$$h_{0,n}=\dfrac{x^{n+1}-x}{x-1}$$$.

Finally we get

According to this recurrence formula, we can get

When $$$k$$$ is constant, there exist a $$$k$$$-degree polynomial $$$g_k(x)$$$ about $$$n$$$, making $$$h_{k,n}=x^{n+1}g_k(n)-xg_k(0)$$$. This conclusion can be proved by mathematical induction.

Consider how to use interpolation to get this polynomial, we only need to find $$$g_k(0)\sim g_k(k)$$$.

Consider difference method, $$$h_{k,n}-h_{k,n-1}=x^{n+1}g_k(n)-x^ng_k(n-1)=n^kx^n$$$.

So $$$xg_k(n)-g_k(n-1)=n^k$$$. But we still can't get $$$C$$$. There is a conclusion: the $$$(n + 1)$$$-th difference of the $$$n$$$-degree polynomial $$$f(x)$$$ is $$$0$$$. That is to say, $$$\sum_{i=0}^{n+1}(-1)^{n+1-i}\binom{n+1}{i}f(i)=0$$$.

So we can get $$$g_k(0)$$$, then use polynomial fast interpolation, and then polynomial multipoint evaluation to get the value of every point we need.

It can be observed that the DP transfer can be replaced by matrix, so there are matrices each position, the problem is equivalent to get the sum of the matrix products of all intervals. It's easy to solve. You can solve it in the way you like.

Overall complexity: $$$\mathcal{O}(k\log^2k+n)$$$.

Thanks for the fast editorial! <3

-- Excuse me, what is the worst problem did you solved ever? -- Cf #789 B2. -- (surprising)

Although the problem was a bit difficult, but just because you missed some observation does not mean that problem was bad.

Remember:

Typical cyan attitude.

B2 was not a bad problem though...

in div1D I thought that we choose k indices where we swap $$$p_i$$$ and $$$p_{i+1}$$$ (((

Certainly not the most comfortable round for Div2, but I liked problem C. Thanks for a great editorial btw.

Obligatory to say this, since many people are talking about it:

Div1A in $$$\mathcal O(n^2 \log n)$$$ (with a BIT/Fenwick Tree) fits within the time limit, even though I think $$$n \leq 5000$$$ was chosen to specifically cut out these solutions.

Yeah, that's straight up bad prep. Either they should have made a lower limit, or made these solutions fail.

Mine ordered set solution fails but others Fenwick tree solution passes that's a bit unfair

ordered_set is much slower than Fenwick

Then how to decide between Fenwick and ordered set

Always choose fenwick over ordered_set if you can use both

My Custom Implemented Order Statistics Passed in ~561 ms : https://codeforces.com/contest/1678/submission/156411337

Checkout my blog as well ;) -> Blog

ordered set does work, you might have been doing redundant operations https://codeforces.com/contest/1678/submission/156385249

Editorial mentions that n^2 logn solutions can pass too, so ig they didn't intend to cut them?

It is hard to cut them. Who use n^2 logn solutions also will lose time.

I'm a bit surprised since my n^2logn solution using only upper_bounds(which are probably faster than/ not much slower than BIT) got TLE.

Yeah, I also assumed that upper_bound should be faster

But now that I think about it rationally, BIT has much fewer operations, particularly by half fewer conditional jumps which are damn expensive. So it is only natural that bit is much faster

"was chosen to specifically cut out these solutions."

Well, what is the point of cutting logn solutions? It doesn't even make the general idea much different

Actually problem F can be solved when $$$k \leq 10^6$$$, my solution has complexity $$$O(k\log k + n\log^2 n)$$$.

Our goal is to compute the coefficient of some polynomial $$$S(n)$$$ satisfying

We have

Therefore we have

we write $$$S(x+1) = \mathrm{e}^{\mathrm D} S(x)$$$ formally, here $$$\mathrm D$$$ is the differential operator, then we have

thus

we only need to compute the multiplicative inverse of $$$p\mathrm{e}^x - 1$$$, which can be done in $$$O(k\log k)$$$.

Here's an alternative phrasing of this concept, which inlines the differential operator a little bit.

Fix a polynomial $$$A(x) = a_0 + a_1 x^1 + a_2 x^2 + \cdots + a_k x^k$$$. Now, let $$$t$$$ be a formal variable, and note that for any $$$n$$$, $$$e^{nt} = \sum_{i \ge 0} \frac{1}{i!} n^i t^i$$$. In particular, this contains all powers of $$$n$$$, so we multiply this by a polynomial to get linear combinations of powers of $$$n$$$ (i.e. polynomials). In particular,

Where $$$[t^k]$$$ denotes taking the coefficient of $$$t^k$$$. Let $$$\hat{A}(t) = k! a_k t^0 + (k-1)! a_{k-1} t^1 + \cdots + 0! a_0 t^k$$$, so that $$$A(n) = [t^k] \hat{A}(t) e^{nt}$$$.

Now, consider the sum $$$\sum_{i=0}^{n-1} p^i A(i)$$$. We can use the above form to get

(This is valid because $$$[t^k]$$$ is a linear operator.) Note that $$$\sum_{i=0}^{n-1} p^i e^{it}$$$ is a geometric sum! Thus, we get

We can split this term into

Note that this only depends on the first $$$k+1$$$ coefficients of $$$\hat{A}(t) / (pe^{t} - 1)$$$, and the left hand term can be viewed as a different polynomial evaluated at $$$n$$$. The rest of the solution is the same.

One final note: if $$$p = 1$$$, then $$$e^t - 1$$$ does not have a generating function inverse, as it has constant term $$$0$$$. In this case, we can instead use

since $(e^t-1)/t$ has nonzero constant term. The generating function $$$((e^t-1)/t)^{-1}$$$ is thus the key thing to compute to find sums of powers; this is in fact the EGF of the Bernoulli numbers.

ayy fast editorial :)

We can solve 1677A - Tokitsukaze and Strange Inequality in more straightforward manner. 156343295

This is actually very good solution, i understood it better than the editorial itself.

Sorry for being late, but can you please explain this solution?

Thanks for nice debugging template.

I'm very sorry for question 1F in div1. This question is not only the same as the question（ https://judge.yosupo.jp/problem/sum_of_exponential_times_polynomial） (I haven't seen it before), but it's really a garbage question. I'm very sorry for affecting the experience of div1 participants. I won't have such a problem next time.

My English is a little poor and may not be smooth.

There is no need to say "something is garbage" because it has appeared before.

Personally, I didn't solve the libchecker task, and I do learn something new from the task (especially from the comment from Elegia). So I really appreciate the task.

On the other hand, I just don't quite like the "wrapping" part of task. Next time you can try to come up with something more interesting. :)

Thank you for your comments. I agree with you. If possible, I will try to think of something more interesting.

there is another dp solution to b2 and b1 with 4 states like

i = current character of string

p0 = parity of last consecutive 0s

p1 = parity pf last consecutive 1s.

p = parity of s[i — 1] where s is given string s.

Solution[submission:156354472]

dp states for problem B is wrong, please correct to

Solution link

Thank you for pointing out.

I did Problem C in O(n^2 logn) using binary search, got TLE. But the editorial says it will pass. How is this possible? My solution link : https://codeforces.com/contest/1678/submission/156353215

My solution is also O(n^2 logn) and it passes comfortably: I did it by brute-forcing b and c here

Well theoretically it should not pass as the # of operations: O(5000*5000*13) = 3.25 * 10^8. And we can process 10^8 operations in 1 sec.

You assumed it takes exactly 1e8 operations in a second. I've seen somewhere I can't remember that its something like 4e8 or so(not sure but i'm sure 1e8 is just used as a rough estimate)... Also, stuff like compiler optimizations etc might happen.

Function overhead + Higher constant?

I think the most important observation for B1 & B2 is that we can just look at each digit-pair's index to determine whether we need to change it: specifically, if we have an "01" or "10" at an even position, we must change it, because finally every segment will be of even length so each such "01" or "10" must reside in a single segment instead of at the boundary of two segments.

Unfortunately I missed this observation during the contest and failed to solve B2... and solved B1 using a more complicated solution.

Thanks for the good round!!! Thanks for the editorial!!!

Why is it written in editorial that n*n*logn should pass in Div2C?

a problem can be solved by many methods,we should not think one problem only to one solution

But I got TLE on n*n*logn :(

May I have a look about your solution?

This 156351799 solution was getting TLE.

I read through your code and noticed that there are a lot of copy-like or sort-like parts in your code, which will greatly increase the running time of your code by a constant multiple (roughly counted as 6 times). $$$O(n^2logn)$$$ is not an optimal solution in the first place, and will probably fail in the case of large constants. But your idea is roughly correct, you can try to maintain the steps of the array sorting section to maintain the previous and next values through the value field by O(n^2), thus avoiding the log

Thanks for your reply. Got it!

by the wall , you can use int instead of ll except the final answer

https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/Z4mNJ6r2Rc/

this is my friend's code

For Div. 2 C, this solution can also pass. Let

`suffix_count[i][v]`

be the number of elements in`p[i..n]`

that is smaller than`v`

. Similarly we have`prefix_count[i][v]`

. Those two arrays can be calculated in`O(n^2)`

: first enumerate`v`

then enumerate`i`

and maintain the suffix/prefix total. Then you just enumerate all`1 < b < c < n`

, and for each pair of`b`

and`c`

just add`suffix_count[c + 1][p[b]] * prefix_count[b - 1][p[c]]`

to the answer.I implemented exactly this (but with different two iterations)

156328504

Why not just write the maths? Let's note:

We want to compute:

which is equal to:

using s[i][j], we obtain:

I read the first question wrong and wasted more than one hour in it. It feels frustrating :(

Wait till you encounter a contest where you spend one hour to finish reading what Petya is up to.

Why does 156322948 this solution pass and 156357149 gives MLE. Both have O(n2) space complexity I think.

Used int instead of long long and it passed ;_;

For me I was using array during contest it was showing MLE. But now with same size vector it passed

Today's Div2c is similar to click here

Can anyone explain more about the tutorial of div1 E? What's the difference algorithm and the a*R+b part?

Yeah I couldn't figure that out either, but here's an alternate solution.

First, for each $$$x \in [1, n]$$$, precalculate:

There are $$$O(n \log n)$$$ triples $$$(a, b, c)$$$ where $$$1 \le a < b \le c \le n$$$ and $$$a \cdot b = c$$$. For each such triple we can find their positions in $$$p$$$; if they are all in $$$c$$$'s active range, then there is some $$$l_1, l_2, r_1, r_2$$$ where all segments $$$[l, r]$$$ where $$$l \in [l_1, l_2]$$$ and $$$r \in [r_1, r_2]$$$ are beautiful. You can imagine a $$$n \times n$$$ grid of cells where the $$$x$$$ and $$$y$$$ axes represent $$$l$$$ and $$$r$$$ respectively; this would translate to marking a rectangular region of the cells. Then the answer for each query $$$[l, r]$$$ is the number of marked cells in the region $$$x \in [l, r]$$$ and $$$y \le r$$$. (It turns out for later analysis that it's easier to count

unmarkedcells and subtract it from the area of the region)To speed this up, one might think of a 2D lazy segment tree with "region add" and "count zeros in region" (via minimum and frequency of minimum). But this is complicated, requiring an implicit storage strategy to cut down on space, and more importantly, may be too slow with total time complexity $$$O(n \log^3 n + q \log^2 n)$$$.

Instead, we use only a 1D lazy segment tree and do a sweep line over the $$$y$$$ axis. Region add becomes two range adds, one positive and one negative. To implement "count zeros in region", we solve the queries offline, at time $$$y = r_i$$$. But we also need to implement a "tick" operation when advancing $$$y$$$, whose basic description is "if range minimum is $$$0$$$, add its frequency to a historic sum $$$zeros$$$"

For a lazy segment tree to work, all possible range update operations, and compositions thereof, must be unified into a single small data structure that is cheap (preferably $$$O(1)$$$) to copy, compose, and apply, so we somehow need to summarize an arbitrary sequence of range adds and ticks into such a data structure.

Multiple range adds are easy, just add their deltas. Multiple ticks are also pretty easy, just store the number of ticks elapsed, then perform them all at once using multiplication. However, range adds and ticks do not commute with each other, so it's not sufficient to merely store these counts separately.

Turns out though, we only care about the ticks that happen when the range minimum is zero, and this can only happen when the delta (prefix sum of range adds) is at the minimum value. So any sequence of update operations can be summarized by a triple of values:

Final time complexity is $$$O(n \log^2 n + q \log n)$$$.

I have a similar solution 157331395 with the following differences:

When generating rectangles for $$$c$$$, we can do a small tweak so no two rectangles intersect with each other, this will make the count easier. We use $$$(x1, y1, x2, y2), x1 \le x2, y1 \le y2$$$ to represent a rectangle.

We do a sweep line over the $$$x$$$ axis, move $$$X$$$ from $$$1$$$ to $$$n$$$, we use two 1D segment trees:

$$$F$$$: Count the cover of rectangles that are fully inside the current region, i.e. the rectangle's $$$x2 \le X$$$. Let $$$F_y = $$$ the number of covered cells $$$(x, y), 1 \le x \le X$$$. We just use the traditional "range add, query sum" segment tree.

$$$G$$$: Count the cover of rectangles that are partially inside the current region, i.e. $$$x1 \le X \lt x2$$$. Each leaf node $$$G_y$$$ maintains:

1. $$$x$$$: $$$x1$$$ of the rectangle covering column $$$y$$$, or 0 if it is not covered.

2. $$$cnt$$$: 1 if column $$$y$$$ is covered, or 0 if it is not covered.

Non-leaf nodes maintain the sum of $$$x$$$ and sum of $$$cnt$$$. It is a modification of "range set, query sum" segment tree. We need to add an extra field to indicate if the column is covered.

For every rectangle whose $$$x1 = X$$$, add it to $$$G$$$. For every rectangle whose $$$x2 = X$$$, remove it from $$$G$$$ and add it to $$$F$$$.

To calculate the number of covered cells inside rectangle region (1, 1, X, Y): Let $$$g$$$ = $$$G$$$.query(1, $$$Y$$$). The count = $$$g$$$.$$$cnt * (X+1) - g$$$.$$$x + F$$$.query(1. $$$Y$$$)

Hi can someone tell me why this code times out on Div2.C. I am new to segment trees but I knew there was a way to use it to find the number of elements less than x within a given range, so I took the code online and tried it but it times out. Any help is appreciated. Thank you https://codeforces.com/contest/1678/submission/156367158

I might be wrong but I think it is just because of constants. Segment tree already has very big constants and your implementation uses vectors which adds more constants and is not necessary. Try to use a Fenwick tree instead which is strictly O(logN).

you need O(n^2) to pass this problem.

Participating in div2 contest was pretty hard for me because of B2 being so strange. Anyway, I upsolved this contest and I have 1 question: How D2F (D1D) is supposed to be D2F? It seems pretty like D2D for me, and I spent much more time on D2D/D2E, than on D2F

Can someone please help me understand what the variable y means in the greedy solution for problem B2? I've been trying to wrap my head around the greedy solution, but I'm just not getting it.

I cannot understand why I have to check if it is impossible to make original permutations in div1 D. In statement, you said that the unclear value sequence was originated from some value sequence that Tokitsukaze made. So I think the unclear value sequence of the problem must have at least one correct original permutation.

I had a doubt with this submission for

Problem C: 156336500I used PBDS of C++to find the number of Pa < Pc and Pb > Pd where I'm iterating over b and c and finding the number of Pa and Pd and since we can select any of those a or d we multiply and add for all cases.HelpWhy did my solution failed for B2 , any test cases where my solution is not correct ? 1678B2 - Tokitsukaze and Good 01-String (hard version) 156326219

Your solution is failing on the following test case :

Got it , Thanks a lot :)

Can anyone please help me for Problem A with Round #789 Division 2 my logic seems to be alright as compared to the one given in the editorial I don't know why I am getting Wrong Answer....

Here is my code, 156393108

Also Here is the one which I submitted when the Contest was live....156311829

Your Solution is failing on following test case :

test case1 2 1

Answer should be 3 but it is giving 4. This is because in your solution you are checking if adjacent number are eqaul or not , but actually you should check if any 2 number are eqaul. For example in this case "1 2 1" have two numbers equal (first and last) so it should return n , but in your solution because it is not adjacent it will return n+1 , which is wrong.

thanks for pointing that out

It hurts a lot when your solution got wrong because of just two line mistake. :( But it also helps you motivate not to do it again :) Thanks for solutions.....

Div-2 C is kind of hard to understand from the tutorial. Anyone else having problem too?

div-2, Problem B, this problem is an example of how valuable a good observation is!

Problem E $$$2c * (N - c)$$$ is obtained from the following: We choose the largest $$$c$$$ numbers from 1 ~ N with positive contribution and smallest $$$c$$$ numbers from 1 ~ N with negative contribution. The answer is twice the sum.

$$$2 * [-(1 + 2 + ... + c) + (N - c + 1) + (N - c + 2) + ... + N]$$$

$$$= 2 * [-(c + 1) * c / 2 + (2 * N - c + 1) * c / 2]$$$

$$$= c * (2 * N - 2 * c)$$$

$$$= 2c * (N - c)$$$

In

div1. C, can someone give formal proof for why alternating between maximum and minimum, maximizes the beauty?Could't solve B2. It seems like a greedy problem but instead it's dp, and I didn't even think of dp:(

Can anyone explain how was the below formula in the problem

Tokitsukaze and Two Colorful TapesDiv 1 C derived:c=∑⌊CircleSize / 2⌋, N represents the size of the permutation,score=2c⋅(N−c).I understood the part of valleys and peaks. But I can not seem to connect that with this formula which is said to be derived from the summation formula of the arithmetic sequence.

So I finally found out how we can get the score value from the summation formula of the arithmetic sequence. Here if we consider all the cycles then it will be a series of positive peak values and a series of negative valley values. So we need to take the highest peak with the lowest valley. So it would be like this:

(2*h_maxpeak — 2* h_minvalley),(2*h(maxpeak-1) — 2*h_(minvalley+1)),...._This is how the series will go. If we have odd cycles then the last terms will get reduced. So if we consider n=10. This is how the series will go:

(Sorry for picture . I am not that adept yet to write equations in spoiler. Any help or resource on how to write equations in codeforces will be appreciated)

Please feel free to correct me if I have made any mistakesin question B1 can someone explain me this test case 110011000

your test case is wrong since n is guaranteed to be even and len(110011000)=9 which is odd ,read the problem again.

Can Problem E div.2 be solved using some kind of DSU ?

https://codeforces.com/contest/1678/submission/157409437 Here is my solution which got accepted for problem C I create a 2d vector of size n*n to solve this problem, should't it cause any problem since I was not able to create an array of the same size

Ladies and gentlemen, we got him!

I'm talking about div1F: the coefficients don't need to be interpolated, we have a direct (but not closed-form) formula.

Consider the Mellin operator $$$\mathsf{O} = x \frac{\mathrm{d}}{\mathrm{d}x}$$$. We want to find $$$h_{k,n} = \mathsf{O}^k \frac{Px-(Px)^{n+1}}{1-Px}$$$ for $$$x=1$$$ (yes, starting the sum from $$$1$$$ even for $$$k=0$$$). This operator follows the general Leibniz rule:

with proof by induction: it follows the Leibniz rule trivially for $k=0$ and

We need to express $D_k = \left. \mathsf{O}^k Px (1-Px)^{-1} \right|_{x=1}$. Ansatz $$$D_k = f_k(x) (1-Px)^{-k-1}$$$ gives a recurrence

which together with $f_0(x)=Px$ says $$$f_k$$$ is a polynomial with degree $$$k+1$$$ (proof by induction); denoting its coefficients by $$$f_{k,j} P^j$$$, we have

which is the formula for Eulerian numbers (shifted so indices start at $1$ and $$$f_{k,0}=0$$$). In short, $$$D_k = P A_k(P) (1-P)^{-k-1}$$$ where $$$A_k(x)$$$ is the $$$k$$$-th Eulerian polynomial. Btw, this is in Wikipedia too (with a mistake, unsurprisingly for Wikipedia).

How do we calculate $A_k(P)$ for $$$k \le K$$$? Eulerian polynomials have been studied extensively. We can use the formula $$$A_k(P) - \sum_{j\lt k} {k \choose j} A_j(P) (P-1)^{k-1-j} = 0$$$ for $$$k \gt 0$$$, which can be rewritten to

and this gives us a way to express the generating function $G(y) = \sum_k \frac{A_k(P)y^k}{k!(1-P)^{k+1}}$ as

so all we need to do is invert a polynomial.

Next, we can define a generating function of $h_{k,n}/k!$ for fixed $$$n$$$:

so what we're looking for is the $K$-th coefficient (multiplied by $$$K!$$$) of $$$\frac{1}{e^{-z}-P}\sum C_i (P-P^{n_i+1}e^{n_iz})$$$ where $$$C_i$$$ are the coefficients mentioned at the start of the editorial and computed in $$$O(N)$$$. I don't think this can be computed easily, multipoint evaluation seems better — but at least we got rid of interpolation.

can't understand the row operation for "Tokitsukaze and Meeting" (https://codeforces.com/problemset/problem/1677/B). Can anyone please explain?
