 » thanks for the tutorial!How to split sequence into |LIS| decreasing sequence in E?
•  » » We'll use the "standard" LIS algorithm with binary searching: sweep through the array, and maintain an array of dp[l] = min(A[i] s.t. there's an increasing sequence of length l ending at A[i]).When we see a new value A[k], we binary search and find the maximum length l such that dp[l] < A[k]; then we know there's an increasing sequence of length l+1 ending at A[k]. Also, l is maximal, so dp[l+1] > A[k], so we should update dp[l+1] = A[k].Now, note that the sequence over time of values of dp[l] is decreasing. Thus, these are precisely a partition of the permutation into |LIS| decreasing subsequences, so we can store a vector for each dp[l], and get the subsequences.
•  » » » But why is its running time •  » » » » The running time of the LIS algorithm is only , but we have to run it times because we're slowly removing one LIS at a time.

 » For 1097D why is the result multiplicative?
•  » » If you calculate the expected value for a given n with k = 1 (one step), you see that the answer is simply σ1(n) / σ0(n), where σ1(n) denotes the sum of divisors of n and σ0(n) the number of divisors.It's well known that σ1 and σ0 are multiplicative functions (and easy to prove indeed). So, it's easy to see from there using induction that the function is multiplicative.

•  » » E[f(X)g(Y)] = E[f(X)]×E[g(Y)], if X and Y are independent. Here exponents of each prime divisor of N are independent of each other, and E(.) denotes the expectation value.
 » can anyone help me with problem B
•  » » 6 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   Since the constrains are small, u can apply brute force, a simple approach is that for every given angle u can consider rotating it either clockwise(+) or anti-clockwise(-). Do it for all the angles in the array and keep summing them, if in one of the ways u get a final sum(after one complete traversal of array) which is divisible by 360, then output 'yes' other wise if non of the ways satisfy the condition sum%360==0 then output 'no'. There are total 2^15 ways(maximum) of obtaining the final sum. Refer to my solution for more clarity. https://codeforces.com/contest/1097/submission/47914337

 » 6 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   in problem c " The task is to connect some of them into ordered pairs so that each bracket sequence occurs in at most one pair and the concatenation of the bracket sequences in each pair is a correct bracket sequence". Can someone explain me the solution of c in context of the bold statement above.if we want each bracket sequence occur in at most one pair then how is the editorial solution is correct. for ex if sequences given are : "((,)),)())" then solution according to the editorial will be 1 but there will be one sequence left with no pair which violates the condition in the bold statement.Can someone clarify my doubt
•  » » At most one means zero or one.

 » How to solve G?I came up with an idea that we can calculate the number of ways to choose k edge(s) from n-1 total edges, and for each way we calculate the number of the set of vertices which satisfies the condition(for every edge we chosen, there is at least one vertex(in the set) in both sides of the edge).And that is the answer. Maybe can use DP on tree to solve it.Because f(S)^k <--> choose k edge(s), that's equivalent.Am I right?sry for my poor English, wish you can understand me...
•  » » 6 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   My idea is similar but not same with yours.First we can use Stirling number to split power into several falling factorial，e.gf(S)^k=sum{i=1...k}S(k,i)f(S)_(i)，where x_(i)=x(x-1)...(x-i+1)=C(x,i)i!then we should compute sum C(f(S),i), for every 1<=i<=k.this is equivalent to choose i egdes and sum the number of sets valid(that means f(X) includes these edges).then we can DP with dp(i,j) means choose j edges in i's subtree, and each egde chosen has at least one node of its subtree in the vertex set. and then the answer is dp(1,i) minus unvalid ways, the latter is only possible when (j-1) edges are all in the other's subtree(and no vertex outside this subtree is in the set). you can enumerate the "highest" edge, and the ways of this can be easily gotten use dp values.
 » I think problem C somehow matches to 990C - Bracket Sequences Concatenation Problem of previous codeforces contest ....
•  » » Same feeling...
 » Could someone mind explaining to me why this solution for problem E doesn't work?My approach is the same as described in editorial, except that I remove from list the maximum between LIS and LDS.
•  » » 6 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   Unfortunately, that's just not efficient enough. That solution gives you sequences, but you need around .The key to the solution is that, if the LIS isn't long enough, we take the entire set of decreasing subsequences, not just the longest decreasing subsequence. Note that in general, repeatedly removing the longest/last decreasing subsequence doesn't give you the minimum cover: consider 3 0 4 2 1: you might want to take 3 2 1, but the only minimal cover is 3 0 and 4 2 1.
•  » » » Hmmm I'm still not fully sure I understand since at every single step I take the max between LIS and LDS, then shouldn't that mean that at least one of LDS or LIS should have size bigger K, for the case mentioned my code would work since if it takes 321 as LDS, then it would find 04 as LIS on the next step.
•  » » » » I don't have a case on hand which breaks it. Unfortunately, it's not true that either the LDS or the LIS has size at least K: see the sequence 3 6 9 2 5 8 1 4 7: both the LIS and LDS have size 3, but K = 4.
•  » » » » » But in that case 3 is fine, because its length is 9, not 10 and 6 is doable in 3
•  » » » » » » For N = 9, you need to solve it using 3 sequences. N = 6 only guarantees 3 additional sequences, so 9 — 3 = 6 isn't good enough.If you want a larger case, the corresponding sequence for N = 25 has a similar issue: you can only remove 5 vertices from 5 10 15 20 25 4 9 14 19 24 3 8 13 18 23 2 7 12 17 22 1 6 11 16 21
•  » » » » » » » My bad
•  » » » » » So I get what you mean which is that in the worst case you will find that LIS and LDS are both sqrt(N), so its possible that there is some sequence where by taking sqrt(N) every time instead of sqrt(2*N) it will require more iterations :SIt just seems very hard to find such case...I tried to find a test which breaks my solution so I ran a program which tested all 9! permutations for N=9 in my code and all of them passed with K<=3, so if there is a case that breaks it it's at least N=13...Also, do you have any idea on how you would demonstrate that the complexity of my proposed solution is 2*sqrt(N)? I did a this very simple code, and it plots approx 2*sqrt(N), but I don't know how to demonstrate it formally: function f(N) { // 10=> 4, 100=>16, 10000=>193, 1000000=>1990 var ret=0; while(N) { N-=Math.ceil(Math.sqrt(N)); ret++; } return ret; } After adding the condition if len

 » can anyone explain how to calculate dp[k][j]? I find it hard because dont we have to calculate gcd between dp[k][j] and p^j??
•  » » 6 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 3 → ,because any t can be 0 ~ t with equal probability after an operation. You can notice that , so you can calculate it in O(α k).
 » May be this is my personal problem, but the value of k was misleading for me, if it was 106 imo it will be better. For this value of k I wrote dp solution without knowledge of multiplicative function and it was very close to tl (about 3s on maxtest). When I wasted a lot of time I finally wrote correct solution, but this is D on div1+div2, so such trap is not good.
•  » » Actually I was a little afraid of having TLE even with correct solution. It was O(k log^2 n) with multiplications and modules. When I checked how long it takes on maxtest (2^something) it turned out it is quick, but it's not like k could have been increased significantly ... unless you would like to require binary exponentiation of matrices ;)
