By dreamoon_love_AA, 5 years ago, In English,

Hello, everyone! Codeforces Round #292 will be held at Feb/17/2015 19:30 MSK. We're looking forward to your participation!

The problems are from dreamoon, and thanks Shik for some discussion. Also we want to thank Zlobober for helping me prepare the round, AlexFetisov and winger for testing this round , delinur for translating the statement into Russian, and MikeMirzayanov for Codeforces and Polygon.

This is first time I provide all problems for a Codeforces round. I hope you'll find it interesting! Please read all problem statements and discover what the main character drazil do in those problems for he's really cute =)

Finally, I would like to ask sorry_dreamoon to participate this round. I believe everyone have the same curiosity as me about your behavior in Dreamoon's round =) May I have the honor of inviting you?

Update1 : Because problems of this round are hard to determine their difficulty, We will use Dynamic score for this round. Then the order of problems is from easy to hard by sense of me and testers.

Update2 : Due to technical reasons we have to move round on five minutes.

Update3 : Congratulation to our winners:

Div 1:

  1. Haghani

  2. sorry_dreamoon

  3. Endagorion

  4. jcvb

  5. xyz111

Also, special congrats on rng_58, who solved problem E in Div.1, which anyone else could not solve.

Div 2:

  1. EarthQuito

  2. I.Smirn0ff

  3. zclimber

  4. Chipe1

  5. tylerbrazill

Between them, EarthQuito is the only person who solve all problems!

        Pretty sure that since tourist is rated 3200+ with C++ he would easily still be 2700+ with Java, even if he does not know the language quite as well.

        I don't think it's very difficult for toursit to write solutions in different languages. For example in standings, he wrote code in delphi, and won 3rd place in Div 1. I don't know delphi, but it looks like Java is much closer to c++ than delphi.

          Trust me, when shifting from C++ to Java, you'll encounter many (from a competitive point of view) stupidities and need to find out how to skip them.

          For example, suppose you want to debug and throw return 0; somewhere in the middle of your code. C++ has no complaints; in Java, it won't even compile! Because you can't have leftover code after returns.

          Pair? There's none, write your own. Map? Which map? There are about 3 types. Vector? Possible, but ArrayList is a new version of Vector. Forget about using [] in vectors (or arraylists), you need to use access/modify functions. Which arguments are passed to functions by reference? Not to mention having to throw some exceptions.

          A lot of these things make sense from a development point of view (the absence of a Pair class does not), but are unnecessary in contests and definitely take some time to learn. Nobody would chug out a working code in Java on the first attempt.

          Also, implying nobody but tourist can beat dreamoon.

            Hm it is interesting. Currently I use Java and am trying to switch to c++, and am having a lot of difficulty. Writing working code in c++ for me is very difficult. Just goes to show I guess that it depends on which language you learn first, since for me Java is far more intuitive.

        tourist can program in Java. you can see it in this link: http://codeforces.com/contest/482/submission/8394627

        Do you think: 1-what does tourist do during the contest? 2-why does he register but don't Participate? 3-why is he online now,if he don't want to Participate in this contest. understanding it is easy: if he copy his code that submited with sorry_dreamoon's profile and submited it in onother profile (tourist) everybody understand that tourist is already sorry_dreamoon so he have to program in Java and C++ and it is a hard work!

    It's definitely not Petr. I don't think he has the time to play games like this because of work + He never considers pure Div.2 rounds. I'm almost 100% sure that it's either tourist or WJMZBMR because though the code is in Java, their style is so damn similar (one letter variable names etc.)

      Yea.. True. Not only that, both of them keep braces for single line if/else statements. Both of them have a single space after ; in loops. Both have same spacing for braces in general, single space then a brace. The only difference one could spot is the newline spacing between different modules in the programs, tourist does not use spaces/newlines at all, whereas WJMZBMR uses a single line to separate out different sections of the program(similar to what sorry_dreamoon did).... :D

      If it is a group of five users from top 30, I think the score of Codeforces Round #284 (Div. 2) may be higher. I think two or three users will be possible.

      Because 3 minutes(147 seconds) for div2B and 3 minutes(183 seconds) for div2C(div1A) is an amazing speed for reading statements and coding if it is single!

There's only one way to find out who sorry_dreamoon is and this will work only if he is not very careful. Someone who works at Codeforces can determine the IP address from where he is logging in and compare it with the IP addresses of all other users. By this comparison, we will either get one particular user who always logs in from the same IP address or we might get a few users who log in from the same IP address (maybe behind a university proxy?). Hopefully, there won't be many International Grandmasters in the list.

This will work only if sorry_dreamoon is not very careful and doesn't use proxy servers (or Tor) to be anonymous on the internet (at least while logging into Codeforces with that handle).

        Maybe you used freopen or ifstream or you read from some files(most of coders use input and output files and than, when they submit, erase that part of program)Anyway, it could be also something like you used dome variables which weren't defined.I can't view your source yet.

            The problem was that reserve() leaves the vector uninitialized. I should have used resize() which sets all values to 0. D'oh :-(.

            In DIV 2 A they were checking (a + b) % 2 = s % 2 where a and b can be less than 0.
            In C they missed 9 case.

    Mostly just 4, 6, 8, and 9, in case people aren't careful enough with which digits should replace them. (4 is replaced by 322; 6 is replaced by 53; 8 is replaced by 7222; 9 is replaced by 7332. I think most people missed the 9 case.)

    I don't think so.That's why they want to know if the solution is unique.If you used bipartite matching, it would took too much, and also, you are unable to see the uniqueness.

    No! It could (hopefully, of course) be done greedily.

    • If there is a free cell that is not adjacent to any other free cell, it cannot be done;
    • If there is a free cell adjacent to exactly one free cell, we must place a domino on these two cells;
    • If each free cell is adjacent to more than one free cell, then we can immediately stop (say there is exactly one correct tiling; of course no two dominoes can share a long edge, and it can be proven that there is a cycle in which consecutive dominoes touch each other, for example:
    <><>*
    ^**<>
    v***^
    <><>v
    

    and then you can flip all these dominoes "one forward":

    ^<>^*
    v**v^
    ^***v
    v<><>
    

    giving another good configuration).

        // Edit: balalaika: you can use a queue/stack/whatever. When you take an element from such structure, we just check whether we haven't processed it before. It is conceptually similar to a priority queue-based implementation of Dijkstra's algorithm.

            Use queue of coords. Firstly push into queue all cells adjacent to exactly one free cell. Then while queue non-empty, you update table and if after that you've got another cell adjacent to exactly one free cell then you push this cell into queue.

            If queue is empty and you still have free cells then output "Not unique"

            Since queue::push() and queue::pop() perfomance for O(1) and each cell can be pushed no more than once you've got implement O(nm)

          the value is (n+m-1)*n*m. the proof is pretty forward. for functions b(i)=i%n and g(i)=i%m, you have to loop n*m for all possible combinations of b(i) and g(i); as b(i+n*m)= (i+n*m)%n =i%m=b(i) and g(i+n*m)=(i+n*m)%m=i%m=g(i). Now If all combinations of b(i) and g(i) happens without a change in the state (happiness) then terminate. so worst case : 1 of n+m must change to happiness. assuming only 1 is happy at start, and is spreading to only 1 at a time of all possible combinations, so we need (n+m-1)*n*m .

          It can also be shown that (2*min(n,m)+1)*n*m is valid guarantee too. AS transfer has to be bidirectional. i.e, if all possible combinations (n*m) had only 1 transfer from first group to second group, the worst case is that the next whole combination have only 1 transfer in the inverse direction. This transfer of only one can't happen from the smaller group times larger than its size (min(n,m)) while it can happen in the inverse direction only 1 more time than this number (1+min(n,m); so totally (2*min(n,m)+1) . multiplying it by number of combinations (n*m) gets the above mentioned value.

        I think that just n*m + max(n, m) would be enough. I don't think I have a formal proof, but I tried it here, and it can be seen passing 41st and 43rd test, which were problematic: 9907232

      Hahaha, there is no such word as "fastrigate" :D. Few professors on UW used word "fastryga" for doing some easy searches of a tree during first semesters of our studies. That is very weird polish word, I don't even know what this means and not many people know (and it's nothing related to trees or algorithms) and since I maintain my library in English I created a verb "fastrigate" for doing all standard things on trees which came to my mind :). That includes finding a diameter and its middle-edge which was useful here (but can be done in a significantly easier way than in my code, because I do many other things there).

Can we solve problem B div2 using graphs.I tried solving it by naming nodes from 0 to n-1 and n to n+m-1, then established an undirected edge between all nodes that can possibly meet on same day.Then for all nodes that have initial happy value 1, I start a dfs and make happy values of all nodes that can be reached 1.

But my solution failed system tests.

    If you have an empty cell that has only one empty cell near it, then you are 'forced' to put a 1x2 tile there. Do this for all force cells (And look if new forced cells appear after, and put them as well). If after doing this process there are still empty cells, then there are multiple solutions.

      1. firstly, we fill the forced cell.
      2. It may happen new forced cells are generated. right ?
      3. Then, we will again fill those cells.
      4. Then, no new force cells will be generated. why is it so ?

        No, after a while of doing that process there will be no more forces cells. (You keep putting the forces cells and putting the new ones in a queue).

    In the '9' case you are adding two sevens.

        9! = 72 * 7! = 6 * 6 * 2 * 7! = 3! * 3! * 2! * 7!

    in the case of '9' you just need a line ofarr[index++] = 7;

Drazil is a monkey. He lives in a circular park. There are n trees around the park.

am I the only one who first thought that it means trees which are special kind of graphs not the trees in our normal life? , funny how my default way in understanding the word "tree" became the trees which are special kind of graphs

So, here is my story:
My solution for Div.1-B failed system testing — TLE on test 15, if I'm not mistaken.
After contest I took my java code, changed Points to pair<int, int>'s, changed queue to C++'s, submitted — and got AC.
So the question is — do I need to forget about using Java in competitions?

UPD: To compare: C++ — 9905626 and Java — 9896943.

    На создание объектов в Java уходит больше времени, чем на создание записей в C++. Особенно это заметно когда создается много объектов.

    You just need to adapt by using as few objects as possible. For example, instead of Queue.add(new Point(x, y)) use Queue.add(x); Queue.add(y);.

      PlayLikeNeverB4, As far as I know Java, the way you said to it, each time x and y will be wrapped into two Integer objects, cause you cannot make a generic queue with primitives.
      Enavik, Of course it takes more time to create objects in Java, but for this purpose TL for Java is twice the TL for C++.
      The thing is that I always thought that Codeforces is such a website, where I don't need to worry about small optimizations when my solution is correct...
      And I think that for this problem TL was really too strict — a lot of solutions failed systests due to TLE.

        Another thing is to use arrays. When you have an array (or queue) of pairs, just use int[N][2]. You can even sort them if you want.

        I used to have problems in the past because of the language, but that thought me to be more careful. When it's an important competition I stick to C++ though :)

I enjoyed participating a lot. However my submissions were judged incorrectly in pre-testing phase itself.

See here: 9902412 9902094

Can anyone tell me why this unexpected behavior occurred?

How do I contact the organizers for correction?
